The various 2018 age group breakdown are as follows:
Once a player participates (including but not limited to practicing, training, attending workouts and/or competing) in a club or varsity program for any university, college, community college, or junior college, he/she is ineligible to take part in any regional and national programming, which includes but is not limited to national JNC qualifying and championship events.

Boys 14 and Under Division:
Regionally waived boys teams in the 14 and under age group will be allowed to participate at the USA Junior National Championships using the following age/grade definition:
Players who were born on or after September 1, 2003
Players who were born on or after September 1, 2002 (15 years or younger) who shall neither have completed nor are in a grade higher than the eighth grade (8th) during the current academic year. (This exception is based on the net height difference of 7’4 1/8” to 7’ 11 5/8” between the 14 and Under Division to the 15 and Under Division.)
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 2018.
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.
The Junior Girls Operating Code, Section 3.5, Subsection 11 states: “Once a Club (through a player’s parent) offers a player a position on a team roster, the offer must remain open, without changes in conditions, for a minimum of four (4) days from the date of the offer unless the offer is declined, in writing, prior to the expiration of the offer period.” When calculating “four days from the date of the offer,” you take the date the offer is made (regardless of time) and add 4.
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.
