GIRLS TRYOUTS - Fall 2020 (for club season!) - click to Register! At LJV, we do NOT charge late fees for registering for tryouts late, nor do we cut off our tryouts registrations 🙂

New age divisions this year: USA Volleyball has changed the 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. Find your age division: https://lajollavolleyball.com/about-info/ages/


Parent Information ZOOM "Meeting" - Friday 10/2 at 5:00pm. Everyone who is registered for LJV Tryouts by noon Friday 10/2 will receive an email with the link to the Zoom call (by 4:15pm)

If you would like to join the Zoom call without registering for tryouts, please send an email to Add Me to the LJV Zoom call and we will include you when we email out the link on Friday afternoon.


Season Dates & Details for 10U-14U teams: Since the status of competitions and tournament play is uncertain at this time, we are pricing our season based upon practices-only at this time. This offers a big cost-savings initially, until it is determined that it is safe to compete against other teams outside of our club. As tournaments are allowed, we will share the add-on costs to have your team enter tournament(s) and receive a uniform.

We will address many "what if" scenarios during the Parent Information Zoom Call on Friday October 2nd, the night before tryouts.


Fees: Season Fees will be based on practices only at this time, to keep costs down. Your Fall training fees will cover practice costs including gym rental, coaches wages, equipment, insurance and an LJV logowear shirt or tank top. When tournaments are eventually allowed, we will register players and teams to compete, which will be an additional cost (to include tournament registration, entries, uniforms, coaching time).

Practices/Schedule: Each LJV team will have a regular weekday practice (Tues, Wed, Thurs or Fri) and a Saturday practice. All practices (for now) are being held at The Salvation Army gym. If SDUSD re-opens gym rentals of high school gyms, then we will move our Saturday practices to Sundays.

Cancelation: If tournaments are allowed, scheduled, entered, then canceled, your tournament fees will be refunded. If all club operations are shut down, then we will issue a prorated refund for gym/coaching costs for future/canceled practices, once it is determined that there is no possibility of making those up. Some club expenses are recurring and non-refundable so it will not be a full refund.
