NEW USAV Age Group Definition

By admin, 07/02/20, 12:30PM CDT


As we are in a time of change, adjustment and reset, we want to let you know about another change.

​​Integrity Volleyball is associated with USAV. That is who you purchase a membership from each year. We are under their rules and regulations.  As of yesterday, they have changed and approved a new "Age Definition Chart". As long as Integrity has been around, this is the first time such a change has been made. 

​​The change moves the cutoff date from September 1st to July 1st. This means that players that are born in July or August will be able to play in a younger group than they could before. So if a player (with July or August birthday) played 14U last year, they can play 14U this year. However, this may put the player on a team with players in a younger grade level. 


So for the girls with birthdays in July or August, we will leave it up to you as to whether you play in the age group you are in or "UP" with your grade.  

​Why is this important now?  As we are having Intense Clinics and ultimately Tryout Evaluation clinics, you need to attend the age group that you want to play on a team  

If this affects you, we will be glad to discuss with you at the Intense clinics to be sure you are where you want to be. We can move you to a different Intense clinic if that is necessary.


INTENSE CLINICS - This is "THE ONE THING" that you need to do if you want to play on a club team. This is not for beginners. You will work with the age group coaches to push you to the next level!  "All Skills Clinic" -  for ALL ages, but you need to sign up for the age you will play in the 2020-2021 Club Season.  Continues Saturday July 11th for 13U and 14U and Monday July 2nd for 15U -18U. (The gym will be closed on July 4th for you to enjoy the holiday, so Intense Clinics for 13s and 14s will not meet that day)

Players from other clubs welcome!!

13U and 14U will meet on Saturdays.

15U, 16U, 17U and 18U will meet on Monday nights. 

12U and under will meet on Friday nights in "Academy Intense" which they must either be invited from the Academy program, have 1 year of club team experience, or tryout for an Academy coach. Contact Nancy at if you want to be evaluated for Academy Intense.

***Highly encouraged for current players who want to play with Integrity in 2020-2021 season. This is a must!
