Southern California Volleyball Association Tryouts

About SCVA

The Southern California Volleyball Association (SCVA) is a non-profit organization affiliated with USA Volleyball – the national governing body for amateur volleyball. The primary objective of the SCVA is to furnish an opportunity for volleyball players to participate in an organized schedule of tournament play.

SCVA offers four different programs in which a team or an individual may participate: Men, Women, Coed and Junior. Each of these programs has its own Program Coordinator who formulates schedules, procures tournament sites, arranges for officials and communicates information to the team representatives.

The season of organized play for Adults is held from October through May, culminating with the USA National Championships (in May) or the Mixed Six National Volleyball Championships (in July/August). For all programs, tournaments are held on the weekends either on Saturday or Sunday. The season is generally divided into two distinct parts: friendship and sanctioned. The friendship season, from October through January, is the “team forming” period. During the sanctioned season (February through May) teams and individuals must be registered with the national office (for insurance purposes), appropriate uniforms are required and, once sanctioned with one team, a player is not allowed to change teams for remainder of the season. Tournaments are held in facilities throughout the Los Angeles/Orange County areas. Formats of each tournament may vary, but generally a round robin format is used to insure teams the most playing time in the tournament.

The season of organized play for Junior Girls is held from January through June, culminating with the USA Junior National Girls Championships or the Volleyball Festival in June/July. The season of play for Junior Boys is November through mid-February and June (the break from February to June is for high school age boys). The boy’s season also ends with the USA Junior National Boys Championships in July. During the season, all teams and individuals must be registered with the national office (for insurance purposes), appropriate uniforms are required, and after the deadline players are not allowed to change teams for the remainder of the season. Tournaments are generally held in facilities throughout the Los Angeles, Orange County, or Riverside areas, however there are tournaments held in Santa Barbara and San Diego. Formats of each tournament are usually pool play to insure teams the most playing time in the tournament. At the majority of tournaments, referees are furnished along with awards.

The participants involved in SCVA usually have had previous experience with volleyball at a club, high school, or collegiate level. Different divisions within each program allow the Program Coordinator to equalize the draw, allowing teams of equal strength to compete against one another.
