What are the available programs?
FJVC provide a wide range of programs to involve kids from ages 5 to 18. We provide youth programs, summer camps, recreational leagues, adult leagues, and Travel teams.
How many teams per age group?
We try to form two teams per age group from 12s to 17s age group and one team at the 18s age group. They will be divided on a National team (our top and most competitive teams) and a Regional team (Less competitive or for player that are developing their skills)
What is the difference between regional and national teams?
Our National teams will attend an average of 7 tournaments a season; our Regional teams will attend an average of 5 tournaments a season. Our Regional teams will attend mostly regional tournaments (Played between VA Beach, VA and DC) and our National teams will attend mostly national tournaments (Played between Philadelphia, PA to Raleigh, NC and for some AAU Nationals or USA Nationals). By playing in more National tournaments, the National team will get higher exposure to college coaches.
Why travel volleyball?
Travel Volleyball is perfect for those players that would like to improve their skill to the highest possible level. Different from other sports where college coaches come and recruit at the high schools, the bulk of the recruiting in volleyball happens during the multiple day tournaments that travel teams attend. If the final goal is not to play college, travel teams will help the players on their quest to make their high school teams and become a valuable player for the team.
How long is the season?
Our tryouts are normally held in the Fall after school resumes and teams start practicing in November. The length of the tournament season varies depending on the team you are on. Regional teams' tournament season will typically go from January – May, National teams will sometimes extend their season until June to attend the AAU nationals in Orlando FL or USAV Nationals.
What are the travel team fees?
Our biggest priority is to try to maintain our travel team fees as low as possible. Our Fees for the season are in between $1,600 - $3,050 for the season. We are proud to be one of the less expensive clubs in the area (compared to northern VA and the Richmond area). In order to achieve to the lower fees, we have a number of programs that run year around that help cover our biggest expense (our facility rental).
Does FJVC have a boy's program?
For the the 2016 travel season, FJVC fielded a Boys U14 team. Unfortunately, there was not enough interest for a Boys team in 2017 or 2018.
