GIRLS VOLLEYBALL 2021-2022 CLUB SEASON INFO
We are a Junior Indoor Volleyball Club located in Peoria, AZ. Our Girls Club Teams compete in the Junior AZ Division of USA Volleyball. We are excited to be forming teams again in all age groups for the 2021-2022 season!
All information leading up to Club Tryouts will be available on this page including: documentation requirements, pricing, coaches and much more! We update this information regularly. Please continue to check back for updates.
General Club Season Information
Welcome! Whats new for 2022?
What is new for 2021-2022?
At this time, there are *No COVID attendance restrictions for Region Events! Family and Friends are welcome to attend all events. This is also the case for many of the Travel tournaments!
No mask requirement for players during MVC practices or games!*
Coaching Roster! We continue to take your survey responses seriously and we want to ensure that you and your family are getting the best experience possible at Momentum. Even though we had a 97% overall positive result, we are always looking for ways to improve. We feel we have made several updates to our coaching staff and our coaches assignments that only strengthen our community so we can continue to have the best coaching staff in the Valley.
We have added a 13s Nationals Team! Over the past several season our club has grown and so has our talent at all age groups. We have seen an influx of 13 year olds in 8th grade attempt to “play up” in the 14s age group. Many of them make a 2s or a 3s team in the 14s. This will hopefully encourage them to stay in their age groups and compete at a Nationals Level instead of a regional team in an older age group.
We have added an additional qualifier tournament to several teams this season
We have added a 3rd Coach to many of our Nationals Teams! Another suggestion on our surveys was to add additional support to Nationals teams, especially those team who travel and compete in multi-day events. This also helps our club continue our commitment to our coaching staff by giving more coaches opportunities to coach on a nationals level team and develop their skillset in order to be future head coaches at MVC.
New Team Fan Apparel vendor and additional items! We are one of the best branded clubs out there. Not only do we like to look good on the court, but our parents and players like to look good off the court as well. A brand new fan apparel store with updated products will launch this season! We love being out in the community and seeing our MVC Family sporting their gear! The store will open after tryouts, and yes, we will finally have some hat options! Obviously, we will approach this cautiously as many vendors are struggling to get supplies in at the moment.
** Subject to change based on venue and tournament guidelines
With all of these additions, we were able to keep our pricing within approximately $100 of last seasons pricing and the year before. Although compared to many of our larger club competitors (especially those with their own facility expenses), we are still on the lower end of the pricing matrix. We believe that we provides the best value in Club Volleyball and hopefully, the best experience where we consider you all part of our family, and not just a number. We hold our coaches and athletes to the highest standards in order to fulfill our mission each season.
MVC's MISSION is to facilitate our student athletes with the training necessary through volleyball to become great role models in our community on and off the court, and assure they have all the tools to reach their full potential in athletics through positive experiences with our volleyball club.
Leading Up To Tryouts
Check what age division your player is required to play in based on their birth date. This is very important.
We ask that all players review the age definition and come to the correct age tryout.
However, the only exception to this is if your player falls within the 13s age group and is in 8th Grade. We will allow those players, if they choose, to register and try out for a 14s team. If they do not make a 14s roster we will allow them to stay for the 13s tryout later in the day. We may post additional exceptions for the older age groups 15-18 at a later date.
If your daughter falls within the required 14s age group, we strongly encourage them to come to the 14s age group. If they decide to miss tryouts to come to the 15s age group on November 20th and fail to make a roster, our younger teams will already be established and they will risk not making a team. We feel its much better for the player(s) to play on a 14-1s team than make a 15-2 or 15-3 team. Having better players attempt to jump age groups can have a negative impact on players and on the club make-up overall.
Momentum Volleyball DOES reserve the right to create rosters that will be best fit for the player, team, club etc. based on positional need and team need. We will continue to evaluate our roster needs based on tryout registrations, open gyms, open houses, and tryout day.
It is important that your players try and attend as many pre-tryout open gyms and evaluation nights as they can to see if Momentum is a good fit for them. It also gives our coaches opportunities to meet the players and see them play.
Open Gyms are time for players to come in and play volleyball! A great time for them to meet other players who might be at tryouts, meet coaches, and work on individual skills prior to tryouts. These are $10 Cash at the door. Must be registered to attend!
Open Houses similar to open gyms, but are also considered evaluation nights for players. Open House nights are FREE of charge and a great time for parents to come meet coaches and ask questions about the season. Players Must still be registered to attend.

We are expecting to form teams in the age groups 12-18. Players under the age of 12 are eligble to tryout and compete on a 12s team. Please check the age division from USAV and ensure your player is trying out for the correct age. We have Navy, Red, and Sometimes White teams. Our Navy teams 13 and up are Nationals Teams. All Red teams and White Teams are generally AZ region only teams. This just means they will not compete in any National Qualifier Travel tournaments. We may elect to have other travel tournaments on the schedule for these teams.
Navy teams 15 and older will be evaluated to determine which teams will be provided the opportunity to compete in the Open Division. This will be determined during Open House evaluation nights and we will let those age groups know prior to tryouts. We want to see the girls level of play to ensure they are placed in the appropriate divisions which will challenge them, but also allow them to be successful.
We plan on having multiple teams in each age division.
If your player makes a Nationals Team roster and their team wins a National Bid at one of the Qualifier Tournaments, they are REQUIRED to participate in our Nationals Season starting at the end of May and finishing at the 2022 USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana at the end of June/Early July. These teams would travel sometime between June 25th and July 4th and have additional dues required.
We may decide to offer an optional extended season for teams who do not qualify for nationals or who are on a region team. This will usually include practices from the end of May through June/July. We like to try and keep the teams together so they can continue to play into the summer preparing for school tryouts. It will have between 2-3 additional friendly tournaments ending with the 4 day local Volleyball Festival at the Phoenix Convention Center. Fees will be announced during club season.
These are only projections are subject to change based on attendance at Open House and Tryouts. We will run a max of 14 teams. If we do not form a team in one of the above age groups we may add a team in another age group.
