USA Volleyball Age Requirements 2021-2022

USA VOLLEYBALL JUNIOR PLAYER AGE DEFINITION
For use during the 2021-2022 Season
Once a player participates (including but not limited to practicing, training, attending workouts and/or competing) in a club or varsity program for any university, college, community college, or junior college, he/she is ineligible to take part in any regional and national programming, which includes but is not limited to national JNC qualifying and championship events.

18 and Under Division: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2003 OR Players who were born on or after July 1, 2002 and a high school student in the twelfth (12th) grade or below during some part of the current academic year

17 and Under Division: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2004

This age waiver is still subject to frozen roster rules.

The Age Definition Policy was most recently revised by the USA Volleyball Board of Directors on June 30, 2020.
The classification cut-off date of July 1 was reviewed by the USAV Junior Assembly and the USA Regional Volleyball Association Assembly and research justified the new cut-off date of July 1.

Age divisions are mandated by USA Volleyball (governing body) and are not negotiable. Players are allowed to play "up" in age but not "down". Look for month and year of birth in the list below to determine proper age division.
