What are training groups?
Training Groups are our "stepping stone" program for athletes that are just getting started in their volleyball journey. Training group athletes are selected through tryouts which means that there is a high baseline level of play amongst each group.
As opposed to our travel teams, the training groups train once a week and only participate in local San Jose tournaments. This minimizes the program costs but maximizes the athletes training experience.
Fall Local Training Groups (Aug - Dec)
  • Practice 1x a week (Saturday or Sunday)
  • Participate in two local tournaments
    • The Grass Man (September)
    • In-House Tournament (December)

When you register for tryouts you get access to three evaluation dates:

  • Pre-Tryout Evaluation #1 on Saturday August 5th
  • Pre-Tryout Evaluation #2 on Sunday August 13th
  • Main Tryout on Saturday August 19th
**Why do we do this? Tryouts are hard and never perfect. We know the process is stressful players, coaches, and parents. By providing multiple dates for evaluation coaches are able to build rapport with potential athletes and athletes don't have to rely on one tryout session to stand out. This creates a better tryout environment for all.

    Boy's club volleyball is one season that is split into two different parts: the "Fall" portion and the "Summer" portion. There is a break in the club volleyball season because boys high school volleyball is a Spring sport. FALL: Fall season tryouts are in early August. The season runs from August - early January. Teams practice 2-3 times a week as a team during the Fall season. In addition, coaches send 2-3 players from their team to club run 2-hour Setters practices, Pin Hitters practices, and Middles/Liberos practice on weeknights. Teams compete regionally in the Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) Power League (5-6 tournaments in the Nor Cal area). Teams compete in 1-2 National Qualifier tournaments in varying locations during the month of January. ​ SPRING: There is a break in the club volleyball season during the boy's high school season (February - Mid May). High School age teams (15's - 18's) will not practice during this time frame. Our middle school teams (14's - 12's) will have clinics and periodic team practices during this time frame. ​ ​SUMMER: Summer season tryouts are mid May. The season runs from May - early July. Teams practice 4-5 times a week and compete in two National tournaments. A 3-day tournament in Anaheim, and a 4-day tournament in Orlando, Florida for the 2023 AAU Junior National Championships.
