Middle School Challenge

Carolina Juniors Volleyball (CJV) has been growing the game of volleyball in the Carolinas for over 20 years! We have hosted tournaments for our club teams and local high schools for many years and now are excited to host a MIDDLE SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at our South Charlotte Volleyball Center.

Many middle school coaches and parents have expressed to us they feel the middle school seasons are too short and teams do not get an opportunity to play top competition in a tournament format during their regular season and have asked us to please help change that. We understand one of the main hurdles for many teams is the cost, so to continue to help grow volleyball in the area, CJV and Sports Connection have teamed up to sponsor the tournament and only charge each team a $50 team entry fee to help pay for referees.

Any middle school team from North and South Carolina is invited, but we do have a limit of only 24 teams. You are welcome to enter 7th and 8th grade teams, or a mix of the two grades. We plan to split teams up into two brackets according to grade/level and based on the total number of teams. All matches will take place at our CJV & Sports Connection Granite Street Volleyball Center located in South Charlotte off of 77 and 485, one exit from Carowinds (10930 Granite Street, Charlotte, NC). The tournament will last most of the day on Saturday, September 15th, 2018.

We understand school is not in session now and most teams will not be forming final rosters until school starts, so all you need to do now is just let us know by email or phone you are interested and we will hold a spot for your team. The $50 entry fee can be paid by the end of August. We will email you an invoice and more information. We plan to have medals for the winners of both divisions, but the main goal is fun, friendly competition against middle school teams you wouldn't normally get to play.
