Jr/Youth Clubs & Programs

There are numerous outstanding Juniors/Youth clubs and programs around Alaska.  Most of the clubs have Comp and Developmental programs and travel teams.

Players in local USAV programs must be registered with USAV through the new SportsEngine/USAV system.  Use the link below to get yourself registered. The 2021/22  registration is now available. Last year's membership expired on 1 Sept 2021.   You don't need to select a club yet.
You will need to pay the full or tryout USAV fee online.  Club or team fees will be collected later by your club.

If you have not signed up with the new USA Website, here is the direct link:

Player Commitment to a Club program
The USAV Alaska Region and USA Volleyball agree that a commitment to a club is for the entire season – this means from the date that a contract is signed by a player and her family and returned to the offering club, until the end of the Girls Junior National Championships. Therefore, any club that attempts to pick up players for a season ending event must first have a release by the player’s current club in order to invite or offer a player committed to another club the opportunity to play with the new club. Players/coaches/club directors/parents of players and anyone else associated with the club should not be recruiting players to play with the team for any season ending event unless players have been released. The requesting club should contact the other club director first.  This includes AAU events.
