What age should my daughter tryout for?  Should I just use her age?

Current age DOES NOT always coincide with USA age divisions.  The Top Gun Volleyball program and the AAU organization abide by the age definitions created by USA Volleyball.  The USA Volleyball Junior Player Age Definitions for the 2018 – 2019 season are as follows:

18U – Athletes born on or after September 1, 2001

17U – Athletes born on or after September 1, 2002

16U – Athletes born on or after September 1, 2003

15U – Athletes born on or after September 1, 2004

14U – Athletes born on or after September 1, 2005

Tryouts for traditional Top Gun teams will be held in late October/early November.  Please continue to watch the website for additional information.

Please attend the appropriate tryout for your daughter’s age classification as determined by USA Volleyball listed above, with the limited exceptions listed as follows:

What if my daughter is young, but in a higher grade?

A very small number of athletes fall under the category of being in a higher grade academically, yet qualifying for a younger age group.  For example, an athlete attends 9th grade but falls under the 14U age group. In these situations, she will be permitted to try out with 15U age group, if she chooses.   Any other movement of athletes into different age groups will be performed solely at the discretion of the Top Gun VBC staff.  Requests will not be considered.   Because we gather athletes from many different areas and school districts onto one team, we are able to create a challenging environment for each age level.  Top Gun believes that most athletes gain the greatest growth and advantages participating with their current age level.
