The USA Volleyball Board of Directors has voted to adjust the USAV junior age definitions, effective for the 2020-21 season, shifting the start date from September 1 to July 1.
Please see the updated Junior Player Age Definitions Sheet for the 2021-22 Season.
In other non-board related items, USA Volleyball approved the following:
A national waiver was added allowing girls 18s in their junior year of high school to compete on girls 17s teams. This was previously communicated as a regional waiver, but further review of the motion and discussion by the RVAA and JA Chairs lead USA Volleyball to institute this waiver nationally (it will automatically be allowed on rosters in the member management system).
