If you or your daughter qualify for the 12s team as it pertains to the USA Volleyball age definition (born on or after September 1, 2003) and would like to inquire about joining the team, please contact club director Jeremy Penaflor at jpenaflor@ohlone.edu.

Tryout Schedule Change! (October 20, 2015)

Due to a scheduling conflict, we have moved the tryout day and time for the 14-1s team to Saturday, November 7 from 6pm-8pm. The online registration does not currently reflect that, but please note the new day and time as we've announced here today. The 12-1s and 13-1s tryout remain on the originally scheduled day and time.

Please also note that players intending to tryout for multiple teams do not have to pay for multiple registrations or NCVA tryout passes/memberships. Please register for intended age group team, and send a note to club director Jeremy Penaflor (jpenaflor@ohlone.edu) that you intend to tryout for other teams as well so we can include you on the appropriate roster(s).

Announcing Girls Team Tryouts (October 6, 2015)

For the 2015-2016 girls club season, Ohlone Juniors will be fielding 3 teams, including a 14s Power team for the first time. We feel that fielding the 14s Power team provides the girls the next opportunity of transitioning to the next level of play after our standard offerings of the 12s and 13s team. The schedule for the tryouts are as follows:

All tryouts are on November 8:

  • Girls 12-1 Competition Premier Team: 11am-1pm
  • Girls 13-1 Competition Premier Team: 2pm-4pm
  • Girls 14-1 Competition Power Team: 2pm-4pm

Please refer to the 2015-2016 Season Age Definitions to make sure you qualify for the team you'd like to tryout for. There are no exceptions to these age definitions. There is a Ohlone Juniors tryout fee of $25, and registration for tryouts is done online and is open now. Go to the tryout registration page. Please also keep in mind that all participants in the tryout must also register with the NCVA and pay for either a tryout membership or a full season membership. Go to the NCVA member registration page. If you have any questions, please contact club director Jeremy Penaflor at jpenaflor@ohlone.edu. We are slowly replying to those who have already inquired about the tryouts, and we apologize for the delay. More detailed information for each team will be posted soon.

Boys Youth League Team Canceled (September 10, 2015)

It is with great disappointment that we have to decide to cancel the fielding of our Boys Youth League Teams for the 2015 season. Our inability to provide a consistent schedule and quality instruction is what really made us come to this decision, but we hope to run this team during the 2016 fall season. If you are still looking for instructional sessions, we will be running our 10 week Youth Mini League program for boys and girls ages 14 and under. Please visit the Youth Mini Leagues page for more information.

Youth League Team Update (September 2, 2015)

Plans to host a Youth League Team are still moving forward. We do apologize for the registration not being open yet online, but we do have every intention of fielding the team. Practices are scheduled to start on September 13, and the tournament schedule is already on this page below. This page will be updated with registration information as soon as it opens. If you have any other questions regarding the program, please contact Club Director Jeremy Penaflor at jpenaflor@ohlone.edu.

We are holding supplemental tryouts to fill openings on our 14s and 15s boys teams on Thursday, August 20 starting at 7pm. Those interested in joining the teams should attend the tryout/practice.

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.
