Where do I begin?

What program is best for my player?

These are questions that we get asked all the time. Here is a simple way to determine what will fit your needs best.

FIRST THING TO DO.....Determine your players age according to the USAV age chart. You need to know this before going any further.  This may be different than the players current age. Please use the age according to the chart.

USAV AGE CHART

18U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2003 OR Players who were born on or after July 1, 2002 and a high school student in the twelfth (12th) grade or below during some part of the current academic year
17U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2004
16U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2005
15U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2006
14U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2007 
13U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2008
12U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2009
11U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2010
10U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2011
9U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2011
8U: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2012

 

12U and younger - The Academy program is where you need to begin.. The 12U uses a lower net and lighter ball than the regulation ball at 13U and older.  If your player has never been on a Club Team, then this is where they begin.
