Congratulations to all the athletes who were selected to A5 boys teams for the 2018-2019 fall/winter season!!
There are some big changes coming to the boys program for the 2018-2019 season. We will be moving to a "two season" format similar to clubs in the midwest and west coast. We will be starting our fall/winter season sooner, with tryouts scheduled for Wednesday September 12th. Team practice will start shortly thereafter.
We will end the fall/winter season after the St. Louis qualifier in mid-February, and then a second tryout will be held in late April. We will start team practice in early May, and the teams will compete in East Coast Championships, AAU's and Nationals, which are in Dallas this year.
We feel that this new season format will bring with it the opportunity for more to be able to participate, and will avoid some of the conflicts with the growing high school boys programs.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact us and good luck in the upcoming 2018-2019 club season!

Boys Volleyball Frequently Asked Questions
We have two seasons, with tryouts for both. The fall/winter season starts in late September and ends in mid-February. The spring/early summer season starts in late April and ends with Boys Junior Nationals in early July.
How many teams will A5 have this year?
We will have as many teams as we can field, based on the tryouts and interest.
What if I decide after the season starts that I want to play at A5?
For the 14 and unders, we may consider a practice player role in which athletes will have no travel expense, but will participate fully in all practices and training. It’s possible that we may add teams during the season as interest grows.
What if I have never played competitive volleyball before?
Most players that have joined A5 do not have previous volleyball experience. Our strong coaching staff is dedicated to helping each player develop the skills to be successful.
What if I play other sports?
Many A5 players participate in other sports. We only ask that you inform your coaches in advance of any conflicts.
How much are the dues?
Player dues for the first season will be $1000, plus travel. Practice players will only pay $1000 and have no travel fees.
What are the opportunities to play in college?
A number of colleges around the south have recently added men’s volleyball as a varsity sport, including one in Georgia and several in North and South Carolina, in addition to the national powers like Penn State, UCLA, Ohio State and Pepperdine. There were over 500 college commitments from the Class of 2018.
