Tryout Requirements

Apple Valley JO Volleyball (VAA) is a member of USA Volleyball (USAV), who is the national governing body for volleyball.  North Country Region (NCR) is the upper Midwest chapter of USA Volleyball that includes Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  As members, it is required that all participants have a current USAV membership for tryouts.  The USAV membership number will be required to complete this registration and the membership fees are not included in any payments to VAA.  

 

There are two options to choose from for the 2021-2022 season. 

Junior Memberships - Limited*  ($10)          *Recommended for most participants to start & only valid for 30 days

Limited memberships, as determined by USA Volleyball, allow individuals to participate in USA Volleyball, Region, and other Regions sanctioned events with restrictions. Restrictions can be length of membership or participation limitations. These memberships are not eligible to participate in USA Volleyball Indoor National Championships, National Qualifiers, and Bid Tournaments.  The following limited memberships can be upgraded to a full membership. Price of the limited membership will apply towards purchase of a full membership.

Junior Memberships - Full  ($50)

Full memberships, as determined by USA Volleyball, allow individuals to participate in all USA Volleyball, NCR, and other Regions sanctioned events without restriction.

 Each full membership includes access to the USAV Academy that provides in-depth online training courses on all aspects of the game.  Volleyball is the only sport that includes all players as part of the officiating crew and USAV insures proper training for those duties.  Learning to observe the rules from this perspective will help give a better understanding of the game and helps everyone become better players.
