Club Updates

Ohlone Juniors Teams and Tryouts Update [November 13, 2017]

First off we would like to thank all the girls that came out for tryouts for each of our teams. At this time, all rosters have been filled, and there are currently no positions available on our 13s, 14s, and 15s team. As a result, we will not be hosting a supplemental tryout for any of our teams.

Players and families that were offered and accepted a position on one of our teams will receive directions via email on registration both with the club and with their respective governing body (AAU or NCVA) this week. Feel free to check in with your coach or with Club Director Jeremy Penaflor if you have any questions or concerns.

15s Tryout Time Change! [November 7, 2017]

The time for the Tuesday, November 7, 2017 tryout has been changed to 7:00pm. We apologize for the inconvenience. The end time of 9:30pm will remain the same (we hope).

Supplemental Tryout Update [November 6, 2017]

With the current status of the 13s team and the 14s team there is no need for a supplemental tryout at this time. Should a supplemental tryout for either team be needed it will happen on the same date as the tentative 15s team supplemental tryout date :

  • 15s team supplemental tryouts (and all other teams if necessary):
    • Monday, November 13, 7:30pm-9:30pm

This date is tentative and will only be used if our team(s) are still in need of positions to be filled. Confirmation of hosting a supplemental tryout will be posted here on the website. Those who have already registered and attended a tryout do not need to reregister, but new tryout attendees will need to register and pay the tryout fee. Contact Club Director Jeremy Penaflor (jpenaflor@ohlone.edu) if you have any questions.

Supplemental Tryout Dates [November 3, 2017]

With tryouts happening over the next couple weeks, we wanted to announce supplemental tryout dates in case our teams still need to be filled and players are still looking for positions. In the case we do host supplemental tryouts they will be on the following dates:

  • 13s and 14s teams supplemental tryout:
    • Tuesday, November 7, 7:00pm-9:00pm
  • 15s team supplemental tryouts:
    • Monday, November 13, 7:30pm-9:30pm

These dates are tentative and will only be used if our teams are still in need of positions to be filled. Confirmation of hosting a supplemental tryout will be posted here on the website. Those who have already registered and attended a tryout do not need to reregister, but new tryout attendees will need to register and pay the tryout fee. Contact Club Director Jeremy Penaflor (jpenaflor@ohlone.edu) if you have any questions.

About the Ohlone Juniors Volleyball Club

Ohlone Juniors Volleyball Club strives to be the premier volleyball club for youth training of true beginners of the game of volleyball as well as provide a transition to the highest competitive levels of volleyball in the Fremont community and surrounding areas. We look to instill a foundation of learning the game that will last them a lifetime both on and off the court, and it is the hope of the club that we are able to grow the game of volleyball in the area in both interest level and participation.

AAU Volleyball logo.NCVA logo.The 2016-2017 season marked the first year that the club participated in the newly formed Pacific Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) League for the girls competitive development teams. The girls competitive power teams and all the boys teams will continue to compete in the Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) Power League. Our newly established 15s team will be a travel team competing only in large scale multi-day tournaments and national qualifiers.

Tryouts

Tryouts will not be held in August for the boys (as of 2017 fall season). Instead, registration for each team will begin in July with practices beginning immediately after the formation of the teams by mid-August (first come, first serve). Tryouts for the girls will be held in November with practices starting in December and early January.

The focus of our teams will be to:

  • provide a starting point and an opportunity for aspiring, young volleyball players to learn the game,
  • receive coaching and instruction from experienced coaches and current/former players, and
  • competitively develop their skills by allowing all players as much equal playing time as possible.

We believe that, although the goal in sports is to finish ahead, athletes that are first learning a sport should learn from instruction and feedback based on their experience on the court during in-game situations.
