What is the Difference between Power and Premier League?

POWER LEAGUE TEAMS

(FOR GIRLS AGES: 11 – 18)

Our Power League teams compete at the highest level possible both Regionally and Nationally; while striving to earn a bid to compete at USA Volleyball Girls Junior Nationals at the end of the season.  While these teams compete hard and often, we emphasize the importance of our players being able to balance life at home and school. 

Power league teams practice 3x a week*: 2x during the week & 1x on the weekend.  (*11 Pink practices 2x a week)  These teams compete in 1 – 3 tournaments a month in Northern California and beyond.  Practices start earlier than our Premier League Teams, typically around December 1st.  Tournament play will start in January and run through the end of May/June depending on the age group.

PREMIER LEAGUE TEAMS

(FOR GIRLS AGES: 11 – 18)

AVC’s Premier League teams, also known as Area League Teams, are designed for skilled players who cannot commit to the Power League schedule/travel.  Typically because these players are two sport athletes or are looking for a more financially feasible option.

Our Premier League season begins in January and ends in May.  Premier teams will practice/workout
2x per week starting in January.  The teams will play in tournaments once a month and all but one are 1-day tournaments held around the Bay Area.  This is a fun way to master the sport of volleyball with great AVC Coaches and be ready for your next step in volleyball.

*NEW* 10 BLACK TEAM

(FOR GIRLS 4th GRADE and YOUNGER)

For the first time in AVC history, we have decided to field a 10 & unders team that will compete in the NCVA Youth League (Spring 2019).  The goal of this team to give our younger volleyball enthusiasts a team environment that will practice (2x per week) to play in the 4 scheduled NCVA Youth League Tournaments.  

Our 10’s team practices will begin December 1st and their Tournaments will start in January.  This season will end April 7th after their last Youth League Tournament.  We are excited to have this team be the first of its kind for our club--where our youngest players can learn the game in a fun, team oriented environment under the direction of Laura Molina (11 Black Head Coach & Junior Jumpers Director).

JUNIOR JUMPERS

(FOR GIRLS IN GRADES 2 – 6)

This program is a great introduction for girls interested in learning about the game and having fun.  Practices are held 1-2 week at AVC with an end of season tournament held at the end of the session.

Many of our best athletes sparked their interest in playing volleyball by going through our Junior Jumpers program.  We like to think of Junior Jumpers as a developmental program to allow our younger athletes in the gym and get comfortable with the basics of the game.
