Club volleyball refers to USA Junior Olympic (JO) Volleyball, which is a national competitive volleyball network designed to provide training and playing opportunities for young pre-college athletes. Volleyball clubs compete under the same rules laid out by the USA Volleyball.


Players are also placed based on their skill levels within each age group although some more experienced players may be allowed to play in an older age division.


Club volleyball is an excellent way to improve a player’s skill level and allow them to play competitively. Volleyball season usually begins in early October and typically lasts until late April. If a team qualifies for Junior National Championships or attends another end-of-season tournament, the season will end in late June/July.
