Junior Volleyball Teams

Below are the team descriptions to help clarify in more detail each tier. When you choose your team level before tryouts, it is an initial parameter for aiding in CAVC team placement. If a player's performance at tryouts exceeds the level, they will receive an offer to play at the higher tier; it is optional to accept a higher tier, should the family decline then the player will receive an offer for the tier they registered for. Should a player's performance fall short of that season's tier competition then they will receive an offer to play at the tier their performance merited. It is CAVC's goal to place all those trying out on a team, and to provide exceptional training and opportunity for all levels of student-athletes!
