Local Evaluations is a free, low-stress tryout for our famous Local Cali and Local Volley-Fest Teams. Players will go through a series of fun drills and get fitted for their uniforms. If you can’t make Evaluations, still RSVP online, so we know you want to play.

Space is limited, and team commitment is for the full season — November through May!

Frequently Asked Questions

The significant differences between Travel and Local are logistics and tournament rule strictness.

For Travel players, their goal is to play volleyball for their competitive school team, in college, or perhaps on the Junior National Team. Volleyball is often their primary extracurricular activity, so their family prioritizes attending multiple team practices weekly and traveling to tournaments in Orange County and out-of-state, even if it means sacrificing other important family events and obligations. At tournaments, playing rules are regulated and followed strictly (rotations, line faults, etc.) with a professional referee. Top Travel teams compete to earn a bid in the out-of-state Junior National Championships (aka Junior Olympics) and be recruited by college programs.

For Local players, volleyball is often not the player’s only extracurricular activity. Hence, players have one Local team training session per week on the weekend and an optional add-on skills clinic. Tournaments are in Rancho Bernardo, and playing rules are relaxed and on the honors system (e.g., serving in front of the end line and not tracking rotations or player substitutions). Matches are reffed by volunteers, and the tournament director may change playing rules at their discretion since the priority is to maximize team rallies.

The Local Cali Program is for families with busy beginner and intermediate players. It includes one weekly clinic and optional add-on tournaments at the SoCal Athletics Center. Due to the popularity of this program, space is limited!

Due to the Local Program’s popularity, a weekly clinic package is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited.
