Club/Travel Tryout Information
Club/Travel tryouts are for those players looking to train and compete as a team. We ask that you review the team descriptions and ensure that you registering/trying out for the team you are able to commit to. All Club/Travel Players (especially National players) are required to attend all practices, scrimmages and tournaments from the start to the end of the season; there are no exceptions.
Club/Travel Team tryouts are geared towards athletes who want to take their game/skills to the next level and compete in tournaments. Xtreme's Regional and Local teams will begin practices in November. The National teams will have practices beginning in October, but are not mandatory. We realize many players will be playing in High School, so no club practices during that time are mandatory.

The junior age definition for each age group was adjusted to a start date of July 1 (the date had previously been September 1).
A national waiver was added allowing girls 18s in their junior year of high school to compete on girls 17s teams. This was previously communicated as a regional waiver, but further review of the motion and discussion by the RVAA and JA Chairs lead USA Volleyball to institute this waiver nationally (it will automatically be allowed on rosters in the member management system).
Regional grade waivers will again be allowed for 14s boys in the seventh grade to play at the BJNC on a 13s team and for 13s boys in the sixth grade to play at the BJNC on a 12s team. This is the second season of this experimental waiver. Documentation of these waivers must still be submitted to the national office by the region to be allowed onto rosters for nationally sanctioned events. This waiver will not be automatically applied in the member management system without region approval.
Simply put: Whatever age you will be as of 7/1/2023 is the age group you will register for and play in (i.e. if you are 14 on 6/28/23 you will be a 14u player).
