Note: These age definitions are used by domestic club programs and are NOT the same as the age definitions for the International and Domestic High Performance programs for 2019.
The Age Definition Policy was most recently revised by the USA Volleyball Board of Directors on January 19, 2003. The classification cut-off date of September 1 was reviewed by the USAV Junior Assembly and the USA Regional Volleyball Association Assembly prior and during to the USAV 2013 Annual Meetings and research justified the continuation of the cut-off date of September 1.
The clarification of this rule is below.

With the growing size of our club and the number of athletes who attend each tryout, the coaching staff has decided that it would make team selection easier if we have pictures and video to refer to. Head shot pictures will be taken upon arrival at tryouts to be used by the coaches during team selections. Pictures will be deleted after team selections are final. We will also have video of the tryouts that will also be deleted upon team selections are final.
