General age guidelines for non-travel teams:

  • 4th-6th graders = 12U
  • 7th graders = 13U
  • 8th graders = 14U

Our top 14U team may have the option to be a travel team, participating in SCVA tournaments in Orange County. All other teams 14U and younger will play in local tournaments in San Diego County.

We plan to field multiple teams in the 14U, 13U and 12U age divisions. Coaching assignments will be announced during tryouts.


— At LJV, we do NOT charge late fees for registering for tryouts late, nor do we cut off our tryouts registrations 🙂

Age divisions: USA Volleyball has changed the age cutoff to July 1st, so if you were born in July or August, double-check your new age division for this season! This only matters if you will play on a competitive “travel” team; otherwise, play with your grade levels and peers.


Parent Information ZOOM “Meeting” at 6:00pm Friday 9/29 – Everyone who is registered for LJV Tryouts by noon Friday 9/29 will receive an email with the link to the Zoom call
