About SYA Travel Volleyball

PLEASE NOTE The Fall 2020 Travel League has been postponed due to no availability of FCPS gyms for practices and games. Please check back for updates regarding the Spring 2021 League. We hope to see everyone on the courts soon!

 

OVERVIEW:

Travel volleyball gives High School and Middle School players an opportunity to play competitive volleyball at a higher level than recreational league volleyball. The program is ideal for skilled middle school players and experienced high school age players looking to increase their skill level and prepare for their high school team tryouts. Matches are played in the Dave Lacey Travel League, competing against other youth volleyball programs in Fairfax County. This league is not for club-level players or teams. There is both a fall and spring season for the travel league.

                 

Fall Season:

  • Limited to middle school (7 / 8 Graders) teams only
  • Tryouts in late August*
  • Practices start in September with matches starting mid/late September*
  • Single elimination playoffs in early November*

Spring Season:

  • Middle school (7 / 8 Graders) and high school teams with the high school teams broken into 2 leagues – HS 1 (9 / 10 Graders) and HS 2 (11 / 12 Graders)
  • Tryouts in mid-February*
  • Practices start in February/March with matches starting the first week in April*
  • Single elimination playoffs in late May*

* Specific dates and times will be posted for the upcoming season when finalized.

NOTE: The middle school travel team is restricted to players who are in the 7th or 8th grades only. Experienced 6th grade players may NOT play up on the middle school travel team, but are encouraged to be assessed for the middle school house league.

FORMAT:

The SYAV Travel program typically fields the following middle and high school teams:

  • MS (grades 7– 8) (Fall and Spring)
  • HS 1 (grades 9 – 10) (Spring only)
  • HS 2 (grades 11 – 12) (Spring only)

Teams are formed after an open tryout. Practices are held at least twice a week in Centreville/Clifton area gyms. Matches are played once a week on Wednesdays. Matches are typically played in Vienna, Springfield or Centreville. (The SYAV travel team’s home site will be Liberty Middle School in Clifton.)

Other youth volleyball programs in the league are from McLean, Chantilly, Vienna, Springfield, Manassas, Haymarket and Braddock Road areas.

CONCUSSION TRAINING:

SYA requires players, parents, and volunteers to complete a Concussion Training course each year. Click here for more information.
