Elite Team Program


Available Location(s): Granite Street, Northlake



Overview

The CJV ELITE teams will provide an opportunity for girls ages 12 - 18 to try out for the most competitive volleyball teams in the Carolinas. Elite teams are made up of the very best volleyball players from a two hour radius from Charlotte. Elite teams will practice at least 2-3 times each week and compete in 10 or more tournaments on weekends outside the Charlotte area and usually outside of North Carolina.

Mission Statement

The National Level Team Programs at Carolina Juniors Volleyball are designed to offer an opportunity for volleyball players in the greater Charlotte area to reach their full potential and to prepare for the next level of play. CJV provides a program of intensive skill and strategic volleyball training in a safe, positive environment. The experience will teach the values of teamwork, discipline, responsibility, motivation, and self-esteem.

Seasons

Most Elite teams will practice and play in tournaments from November - June. Teams qualifying for end of season tournaments may choose to play into July.  

Teams & Locations

CJV's goal is to form one Elite team at each age group for all of Charlotte. These Elite teams will be made up of the very best players from all over Charlotte and the surrounding cities and will practice at the CJV Volleyball Centers in South Charlotte (Sports Connection-Granite Street) AND in North Charlotte (Sports Connection-Northlake).  

Playing Age

The CJV Playing Ages are based on the USAV established Playing Ages.  Players should try out for their age group.  Coaches may move players and combine age groups as needed.  The goal is 10 players per Elite & National teams and 10-11 players per Semi-National & Regional teams.  

Tryouts & Registration

Pre-registration is required for all National Level Team programs.

* Early Registration Deadline for all Tryout Age Groups is SEPTEMBER 18

There is a $20 (early registration fee) or $35 (late registration fee) for all National Level team tryouts. Girls not registered and paid by the posted deadlines may be put on a waiting list or not be able to participate in the first day of tryouts. It is very important to register by the deadline to allow the CJV Club to review the numbers and ages of girls to prepare for tryouts. All players will receive a CJV/Under Armour shirt to wear at tryouts and to keep.

If you do not make an Elite team, you will be placed on a National, Semi-National or Regional Level team ONLY IF you indicated on your registration form you want to play at either level.

Cuts may be made after each day of tryouts. Players and Parents may be contacted before teams are posted. Bids will be offered on or before November 1 for 12-14 age level teams and November 15 for the 15-18 age level teams. Teams will be posted once all bids are accepted and deposits are paid.

We understand that some players may have to miss part or all of one day of tryouts due to other commitments. Players should come to each night of tryouts if they are able. We want all parents to be part of your daughter's volleyball experiences at CJV; therefore, we do allow parents to attend tryouts.

Coaches

Each of the Elite teams will have 1 Head Coach and 1 Assistant Coach. Visit the COACHES page to see details on our incredibly talented and successful coaching staff. Visit the TEAMS page to see all Teams and Coaches. Coaching assignments may change based on the number and level of girls at tryouts and the total number of teams formed.

Signing Dates

After tryouts are completed, all players making a team will be notified and have an option to accept the invitation to play with CJV. No club may force you to commit to their program until the Carolina Region "signing date", however, you may voluntarily commit prior to this date. When selected for a team you will have 24 hours to pay 1/3 of your team fee. To withdraw from being selected for a National Level team, please submit your request IN WRITING prior to the end of the second tryout.

Practices

Elite teams will practice 2-3 times per week. Elite teams may practice at the Sports Connection-Granite Street AND the Sports Connection-Northlake CJV Volleyball Centers based on the coach's discretion. Click on TEAMS for more specific practice information once you are selected to a team.  Practices could be any day of the week from 4:00 - 10:00 PM.  Practices could be on any weekend from 8:00 AM - 10:00 PM. More information on practices will be available at tryouts.

Tournaments

A Tournament Schedule will be posted on the Team's page when available.  All Elite teams will play in at least 10 USAV or AAU tournaments throughout the season. Tournaments will be decided on by the coach with input from the CJV club and parents and players.  The tentative schedules will be available at tryouts and the estimated team fee will be available at tryouts as well. Each team will have the option to try and qualify for the USAV or AAU National Championships. The cost to enter the USAV National Championships and the coaches expenses are already budgeted for in the CJV Elite Fee. If teams and coaches choose not to attend Nationals, or if the team fails to qualify for Nationals, a refund will be issued at the end of the season to each girl.
