Club Updates

Team Updates

We're happy to announce that the Ohlone Juniors 14-1s boys team is set and ready to go. The boys have begun practice in preparation for their first competition in a couple weeks. The site of the Power League Qualifier has been released and is updated in the schedule below. We would also like to announce that registration for the 7th/8th grade Youth League has been extended to September 8. As always, registration is all done online, and you can use link below to navigate directly to the registration portal. It is with great disappointment that we announce that we will not be fielding a 16-and-under boys team this season. With the lack of participants at our tryouts, it didn't make sense to field a team with minimal numbers. We hope try again during the 2015 season.

Ohlone Juniors girls teams will begin sessions in October. Please check back here for updates and schedule of those programs as well as tryout schedules.

2014 Supplemental Tryouts

Ohlone Juniors will be holding supplemental tryouts to fill positions on the 16s team. Tryouts will be on Thursday, August 21 from 7pm-10pm for both teams. Registration for tryouts is done online, and the fee for the tryout is $25. Those who registered for the first tryout do not have to register for the supplemental tryout. Contact club director Jeremy Penaflor for any questions about the supplemental tryouts.

All tryouts will be held on the Ohlone College Fremont campus in Epler Gymnasium located on the second floor of Building 9.

About the Ohlone Juniors Volleyball Club

Ohlone Juniors Volleyball Club is a juniors volleyball club that will host a variety of teams for boys and girls. Our club will host a maximum of 3 teams every season for both boys and girls.

Our boys division will have Youth League teams and Power League teams that will compete in the Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA). The boys division will have a 14-and-under team competing in the 14s division of the NCVA boys power league. We will also have a 7th/8th grade team and a 5th/6th grade team competing in the NCVA youth league. Each team will have a minimum of 9 players and a maximum of 12 players.

Our girls division will have Competitive Development Teams and Development Teams. Competitive Development Teams will compete in the NCVA girl's Premier League. Development teams will practice only. Competitive Development Teams will be hosted for 13-and-under and 12-and-under and will have a minimum of 9 players and a maximum of 12 players. Development Teams will be 12-and-under only with each team having a minimum of 9 players.

Tryouts

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:

  1. provide a starting point and an opportunity for aspiring, young volleyball players to learn the game,
  2. receive coaching and instruction from experienced coaches and current/former players, and
  3. 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.
