Club Volleyball INFO
CJVA’s Club Volleyball program provides a positive, competitive environment for players to learn and grow. Our goal is to provide a rewarding opportunity for our players to learn self-discipline, team work, motivation, perseverance, and work ethic. It’s our belief that these qualities will benefit out players throughout their lives. The program welcomes players of all levels, from those just beginning to those preparing to play in college.
USSCI Club Fee Insurance
Every year, we have players who are unable to finish the season, whether from injuries, illness, job loss, or other various reasons. Life happens, and we wanted an option for parents to feel comfortable with their decision to play club. All Club Volleyball parents have the chance to insure the cost of their club fees utilizing USSCI Sports Fee Insurance. For as little as 5% of the total club costs, you can be insured in the event that anything happens before or during the season. This is not a requirement to play, but an option we are providing starting this Club season. Click the button below to look over the information for USSCI Sports Fee Insurance.

Players on our club teams practice for 6-7 months, between two and three days per week. Club teams will take part in local, and occasionally out of state tournaments, in which they will play against several of the top teams from New Jersey and surrounding states.
Players wishing to join a club team must attend tryouts for that are held in the Fall of each year. Players are evaluated for skill level, potential, as well as attitude and ability to grasp instruction.

Players and parents should understand that CJVA does not guarantee that all players will receive equal playing time, especially in our more competitive teams. However, coaches will ensure that all players attending tournaments will receive some playing time. Playing time is determined based on performance in practices prior to tournaments, and based on how they perform on the day of the tournament.
For players who are unable to commit to a full Club volleyball season, we have youth leagues, which give a similar team-based training for players, but on a shorter time scale. More information can be found under our Youth Leagues page.
CJVA has several opportunities for year-round training.
For younger players, our Youth Development program is run year-round, and is a good opportunity for beginner-to-intermediate players to practice their skills.
Over the summer, we also have many opportunities to keep in shape. Our summer day-camps are run weekly in July and August. Summer Skills Clinics are also available during the nighttime in July and August. More information can be found on our Summer Programs page.
CJVA also has our very own Beach Volleyball program, run by coach Andrew Conkin. Clinics are run in June and July on weeknights. More information can be found on our Beach Volleyball page.
