Ohlone Juniors Girls to Join Pacific AAU League for 2016-2017 Season
In an effort to meet the needs of our players and families of quality training at affordable costs and time commitments, Ohlone Juniors has decided to join the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) for its competitive development teams. The teams that will compete in the newly formed AAU league are the 12-1s and (tentatively) the 14-2s. By doing this, these teams will now be afforded less travel time (all tournament locations are in the greater south bay), shorter competition days, and paid officials to officiate all matches. The 14-1s will continue to compete in the NCVA Power League division. More details for the season will be published shortly.
Openings on the 14s Team Still Remain
Though we are confident that this team will move forward with forming and being part of the league, we are still looking to fill openings on our 14-1s Power League team. Anyone interested in joining should inquire with club director Jeremy Penaflor and also plan on attending a supplemental tryout/first practice on Thursday, August 18 at 7pm. The practice is held in Epler Gymnasium on the second floor of building 9 of the Ohlone College Fremont campus. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
We are still accepting inquiries for the 12s team as well, but we are not as confident that this team will move forward due to the lack of numbers.

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.
The 2016-2017 season will mark the first year that the club will participate 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.
Tryouts will be held in August for the boys with practices beginning immediately after the formation of the teams. 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 in-game situations.
