Ohlone Juniors Volleyball Club Looking Forward to 2014-2015 Season

With the closure of the Ohlone College Gymnasium, Ohlone Juniors was not able to field girls teams for competition for the 2013-2014 season. This has since led to speculation as to whether there would be 2014-2015 season. Well…whatever you heard, the truth is the club is very much looking to start competing in both the boys division and girls division for the 2014-2015 season.

With the current seasons still in full swing dates, times, and schedules are still in the planning stages. What is for sure is tryouts for the boys teams will be in early August 2014, and tryouts for girls teams will be in early November 2014. Dates and times will announced here on the website so make sure to check back in June/July.

If you're looking to prep for tryouts or your personal school teams check out the many programs Ohlone College Volleyball offers for the summer including summer volleyball camps and the summer Youth Mini Leagues.

You can contact Ohlone Juniors club director and Ohlone College Head Women's Volleyball coach Jeremy Penaflor if you have any questions at jpenaflor@ohlone.edu.

More details about the program will be posted on the Youth Mini leagues page soon. Visit the page for more information about the program including schedule, program instruction details, staff, registration, and cost.

Ohlone Juniors Girls Volleyball Update

It is with great disappointment that we announce the decision to forgo this 2013-2014 for our Competitive Development girls teams. Due to a gym closure in mid March, we would not have a facility to continue practices through the large remainder of the season. We will continue to plan a short season for our development program, and sign ups for those teams (no tryouts necessary) will begin in December. Also look for our youth mini leagues for boys and girls to begin in February, a program ran by our Ohlone College coaching staff along with current and former players. We deeply regret this decision, but we hope to see you next season. [Posted October 25, 2013.]

We’re working with our administration to settle the schedule as soon as possible to give everyone ample notice. Thursday nights are still a possibility, but may not come about until November. Please contact Jeremy Penaflor for any questions or concerns. [Posted August 28, 2013.]

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.
