WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TRAVEL AND LOCAL PROGRAMS?
Travel teams are designed for those players who are looking for a higher level of play. These teams are conducted under the United States Volleyball Association (USAV) and our region is the Columbia Empire Volleyball Association. These teams play typically twice a month with one tournament a month in the Portland, Salem or Eugene area. Most travel teams will play in the Power League tournaments, Regionals and the Willamette Classic and their season typically ends in May. There is a much broader perspective for these travel teams as they will play against teams from across Oregon, Washington, and beyond. At the 14’s level this past year, there were over 130 teams entered in Power League in that age group alone. The Travel Teams are designed for those who have played a year or two and wish to pursue volleyball at the high school level and possibly beyond.
The local program is designed to be less intense and shorter than the travel season. This season runs from December to early March and has two tournaments a month that are all in Prineville. The tournaments are generally much less formal than at the Travel level and the level of play is typically not nearly as high. This program is a great introduction to the sport for those who have not played previously, or only played at the Parks and Rec level.
Both Travel and Local teams practice twice per week, generally for two hours.
HOW ARE TEAMS DECIDED?
Travel teams: Tryouts dates will be posted on this page for each age group. Teams will be announced at the conclusion of the last session of the tryouts. Depending on numbers, we anticipate forming multiple teams at all age levels (18&U, 16&U, 14&U, 12&U) and players will be placed on a team according to their skill and age level. Younger girls may play up an age level if they are deemed by the coaches to be an impact player (starter) at the next age level. Girls are not allowed to play down an age level.
Local teams: Tryout dates will be posted on this page for each age group. Depending on numbers, we will form as many teams as possible and girls will be placed on teams according to their skill and age level.
Age level determination are generally as follows:
- 18&U High School juniors/seniors
- 16&U High School frosh/sophs
- 14&U 7th/8th graders
- 12&U 6th grade and under
