MVSA Junior Olympic Volleyball Information
MVSA sponsors a Girls Junior Olympic Volleyball program that will be in its 27th season in 2018. During the previous season, MVSA sponsored 22 teams that played in various local, regional, and national tournaments including events like the Monument City Classic in Richmond VA, the Northeast Qualifier in Baltimore MD, the Capitol Hill Classic in Washington DC, the East Coast Championships in Pittsburgh PA, the AAU Happy Volley at Penn State University, and the USAV National Championships. Our 18s attended the Power League Championships in Puerto Rico and hope to do so again this year. MVSA will also be playing in the Mid-Atlantic Power League for one or two teams in each of the U14, U15, U16, U17 and U18 age groups. Those teams will have slightly higher club fees due to the additional costs of these overnight tournaments.
Teams will practice 2 to 3 times a week using facilities in the Montgomery Village area. Most of the teams will attend conditioning and strength training sessions in addition to their practice schedule. Teams will compete in 8 to 15 tournaments dependent on the age group, team, and tournament availability.
For the 2017/18 season, MVSA plans to field the following teams:
- 1 - 10 and under
- 2 - 11 and under
- 3 - 12 and under
- 3 - 13 and under
- 3 - 14 and under
