FALL Girls School-based teams  --  General Info  --

button - Girls Fall miniseason

Tryouts are held in late August. Fall mini-season teams will participate in 3-4 local tournaments, September-October.  Some LJV Fall teams will also compete in matches/scrimmages against other local middle school teams.

The Fall Mini-Season is for players who do not have a school-based team or did not make make their school-based team...  it's a great way to have a short-season local team experience and stay sharp during the Fall and be ready for the longer Girls CLUB season...  or just play on a Fall team and compete against other clubs and schools!

Fall Teams are formed by age/grade:
- 3rd - 6th graders will compete in 12U division ("Club" or "Open" level of local team play)
- 7th - 12th graders will compete in "13U and Above" division ("Club" or "Open" level of local team play)

Birthdate does not matter for Fall season, only your grade in school.  Scroll down for TRYOUTS info!


During the Fall mini-season, we strive to provide opportunities and make teams for all interested players, in order to help player development and prepare young players for the Club Season Tryouts (which take place in October).

Any high school players who did not make their high school team(s) are encouraged and welcome to come play on a Fall Local team with LJV and compete in Local tournaments!

Note to High School players: It is against CIF rules for a player to play on their HS team and a club team during the same season.

Fall school-based teams typically have practices 1-2x/week and will have 3-4 local (in San Diego County) half-day tournaments in Rancho Bernardo.  Team-specific schedules and practice days will depend upon your daughters’ team placement.  All Fall teams typically have two "events" per week, either 2 practices or one practice and a tournament. 

We hope to field Fall teams for all interested players. However, we can never accurately predict the turnout of players and we may need to cut some players.  Those players may choose to register for the series of Sunday practices in order to improve skills and confidence prior to Club Season Tryouts.
