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

button - Girls Fall miniseason

Tryouts are held in late August, and LJV Fall teams are formed primarily to compete against other school-based teams.  LJV Fall teams will participate in 4-5 tournaments in Poway, 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 or did not make make their school-based team...  it's a great way to have a short-season 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 - 10th graders will compete in "16U Club" division
- advanced Fall team(s) will compete in local "Open/HS" division (advanced 8th-12th graders)

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 Primary 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!

Fall Mini-Season is open to all players in grades 4th-12th, who are not playing on their high school team.  It is against CIF rules for a player to play on their HS team and a club team during the same season.

Sunday Clinics are $30 each Sunday.  Must pre-pay/pre-register online (even a few moments prior is okay).



Fall school-based teams typically have 9-10 practices and will have 3-5 local half-day tournaments in Poway.  Team-specific schedules and practice days will depend upon your daughters’ team placement.  All Fall teams will have one weekday practice and a Sunday practice on non-tournament Sundays.  First practice for all Fall teams will be on Sunday September 1st at LJHS 2:00-4:00pm

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 Oct 5-7, 2019.
