Junior Olympic Volleyball

ARAA JO Volleyball was created to provide a competitive program at a reasonable fee.  This league is designed for 4th through 12th graders who are looking to further their skills and knowledge of the game in that competitive setting.  Our program is open to volleyball players in the Anoka High School attendance area.  Players outside of this attendance area are welcome to tryout, but priority will be given to athletes living in the Anoka High School boundaries.   

  • Advances players knowledge of the game and skills through officiating training,  practices, play dates and tournaments.
  • Tryouts in November will determine the team placement of all players. Cuts may occur.  There will be no make-up tryouts and walk-ins are not accepted.  
  • The season  runs from December through March. 
  • Ideal season length for athletes who are involved in a spring sport. 
  • Players will be coached by experienced coaches.
  • Our goal is a maximum of 10 players placed on a team. Tryout numbers and coaching will be the deciding factors. 
  • Greater emphasis to players and parents on team commitment when compared to house leagues.
  • Equal play is not guaranteed as this is a competitive league.
  • Players are required to learn officiating and scorekeeping responsibilities.  
  • Members of the Junior Volleyball Association (JVA) under USA Volleyball.
