Indoor club volleyball competitions are divided by age, but may differ for Local & Travel teams.

LOCAL indoor tournaments are only based on grade level in school:

  • 12U = 6th grade and younger
  • 14U = 7th and 8th grade
  • 16U = 9th and 10th grade

For TRAVEL tournaments, the governing body is the Southern California Volleyball Association (SCVA) and they have defined cut-off dates based on birthdate, regardless of grade in school.  If your daughter will be competing on a Travel team, or participating in any SCVA events, then she must adhere to the SCVA dates.

Beach tournaments also follow the SCVA age cut-offs for juniors tournaments, below.
