Spring is the primary girls “club” volleyball season throughout the nation at all age levels. Tryouts and team placements occur in Fall (Oct & Nov), then practices begin in Nov/Dec, and tournaments begin in December and January. Tournaments continue through May or June, depending on team.
La Jolla Volleyball’s Spring Club Season consists of 1-3 practices/week (depending on team placement), tournament entry fees, gym rental fees, uniform package, insurance, equipment and great coaching.

CIF San Diego Section Bylaw 600.1: “Tryouts for club teams during the high school season of sport are not permitted. Practices during the high school season of sport with an outside team are considered a violation of this bylaw.”
What this means: A high school player currently playing on her high school volleyball team may NOT participate in club volleyball tryouts until her high school season is over. For example, if a Freshman player in high school is young enough to be eligible to play in 14U, but is still competing for her high school during 14U tryouts, she cannot actively participate in 14U tryouts. But I believe you may contact that club to let them know you’re interested and would like to be considered.
