Not sure what age division you should try out for?  Simple. Just figure out how old you will be next year on August 31, 2020. You are eligible to play in that age group or an older age group.  Players are allowed to play up in an older age division, but are not allowed to play down in age.

The birth date cut-off set by USA Volleyball is September 1. See the age division chart for official date guidelines.
