2017-2018 Tryout Info

*NEW* for 2017-2018:

NYC Juniors 14U-18U Tryouts will be by



*Due to a limited amount of gym space, and the elite-level of our older teams, we believe narrowing the tryout pool will allow for better evaluation, and help alleviate families' time and money spent during tryout season.

We do still want all athletes to have the opportunity to be considered for a team, so we have come up with the system below to streamline the process...

How do I get an invitation to Tryouts???

1. Returning NYC Juniors athletes: All 2016-2017 NYC Juniors athletes will receive an automatic invite via email.

2. Come to an Open Call: Any 14U-18U athletes who did NOT play on an NYC Juniors team last season are invited to attend a pre-tryout "Open Call" on Oct. 28th or Nov. 2nd.  Email invitations will be sent to standout athletes following each session. RSVP FOR OPEN CALL HERE

3. Personal Invitation: Standout athletes who have attended NYC Juniors camps, Skills Academy, or other events may be issued personal invitations via email.

4. Special Request: If you are unable to attend an Open Call, and would like to request an invitation to NYC Juniors Tryouts, you may do so by completing an online form. You will be asked to provide information about your experience, references, and/or video.

5. 11U-13U: For all athletes born on or AFTER Sept. 1, 2004 you DO NOT need an invitation to tryout. NYCJVA will be fielding teams at the 11U, 12U, and 13U age groups. Register for 11U-13U Tryouts HERE

USAV Age Groups

To find your USAV age group, find your month and year of birth. Age group at the top of the column is the age group you fall in for 2017-2018

*These age divisions are established by USA Volleyball.  Athletes may tryout for an age group OLDER but not younger. No exceptions.
