The CJV SPRING SEMI-NATIONAL teams will provide an opportunity for girls ages 12 - 17 to try out for competitive volleyball teams in North and South Charlotte. There will be 2 possible Semi-National seasons. Tryouts are required for each season. Spring Semi-National teams will practice 1-2 times each week and compete in 3-5 tournaments on weekends in Charlotte and outside the Charlotte area and possibly a few tournaments outside of North Carolina. 

Mission Statement

The Travel 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.


Regular Season - Most Semi-National teams will practice and play in tournaments from November - April for the first season.

Spring Season - The second season will be April - June.

Teams & Locations

CJV's goal is to fill spots on multiple Spring Semi-National teams at each age group for South Charlotte and North Charlotte. Players who tired out in the Fall and are currently on a Semi National team have first right of refusal, and can choose to continue into the Spring or not. Tryouts are held to fill the spots of the players who chose NOT to continue. These spots are limited. Each team will be made up primarily from the best players in each area and will practice at the CJV Volleyball Centers in their area of town. South Charlotte (Sports Connection-Granite Street) and 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 to have 10-11 players per Semi-National Team.  

Tryouts & Registration - 2022 Season

Pre-registration is required for all Travel Team Tryouts.

New Tryout Participant: There is a $35 Registration Fee for all players who did not participate in our 2020/2021 Travel Program Tryouts in the Fall. When registering, you will register for Spring Semi-National Tryouts - NEW under your age group. All players will receive a CJV/Under Armour shirt to wear at tryouts and to keep.

Returning Tryout Participant: For all RETURNING Tryout Participants, please register for the "Returning" tryout. You will be required to include your Royal Blue Shirt Number on the registration form. Anyone who tried out during the 2020/2021 Fall Travel Program tryouts is considered a returning tryout participant (even if the player was not placed on a team). Players who choose to continue with their current team MUST register and indicate which team they are on. Players who were NOT chosen for a team can ingore this field. Again, players must include their Royal Blue Shirt Number on the registration form in order to tryout. 

Players who receive a bid on a team will be contacted immediately following tryouts and will continue to be contacted into the following week. Teams will be posted once all bids are accepted and deposits are paid.

If you are currently playing with another club, trying out for our Spring Semi National season will not conflict with any USAV letters of commitment since our Spring season does not attend any USAV sanctioned events. All players are welcome to tryout.
