Get Ready for 10U-14U Tryouts by doing one of Summer Camps/Clinics and/or Fall Sunday Clinics

Our top 14U team will likely 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. Find your age division: https://lajollavolleyball.com/about-info/ages/

Season Dates & Details for 10U-14U teams: We anticipate and hope that this year will be “back to normal” for volleyball season. This will mean tryouts and forming our club teams in the Fall, beginning practices in Oct/Nov, then tournaments December-May/June, depending on your team.

We will address many “what if” scenarios during the Parent Information Zoom Call on Friday September 30th, the night before tryouts.


Fees: Season Fees will cover practice costs including gym rental, coaches wages/travel, equipment, coach training/certification/background checks, uniforms, insurance and an LJV practice shirt or tank top. Approximate fees for 12U will be $2200 for the season. Local 13/14U teams will be approx $2600, and travel team will be approx $3800-4200, depending on travel tournaments. No refunds will be given once you’ve paid your deposit and committed for the season. Our club expenses remain the same, even if a players chooses not to continue during the season so we cannot offer refunds or cancel your payment plan. Payment plans are a courtesy to help spread out the fees, not reflective of actual month-by-month costs. We appreciate your understanding.

More specific pricing will be available by tryouts time.

Initial deposit of $500 for local teams and $650 for travel teams will be due (online) on Tuesday Oct 4th

Practices/Schedule: Each LJV team will have a regular weekday practice (Tues, Wed, Thurs or Fri) at a local gym (most likely HTH-Mesa) and a Sunday practice at Mission Bay High School gym.

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.
