The girl's comp volleyball club season runs from December through mid April for girls ages 9 to 18. There are generally 2 practices and/or club games a week in the evenings and one large tournament a month on Saturdays, January through April.
Team tryouts occur in late November or early December. These are low cost, minimal cut tryouts with a purpose to determine skill level for tentative team placement. Comp Team levels include 18s, 16s, 14s, and developmental teams are 13s, 12s & 11 & under. AVA also sponsors several competitive travel teams each year to large out of state national tournaments.

 The Alaska Volleyball Association (AVA) is a Junior Olympic and a nonprofit organization for high school and junior high youth which resides in the Northeast Anchorage and Mat-Su Borough, Alaska.  It is the desire of the AVA to establish a club that is a credit to its members, local educational institutions, coaches, parents and the community. AVA provides high school and junior high youth with the opportunity to develop volleyball skills and to play volleyball, with quality coaching, in a learning environment that promotes self-discipline, good sportsmanship, leadership, character development, and personal integrity.  AVA was established in 1990.
    
Most if not all practices will be held in the players' local area (Mat-Su Valley or Eagle River/Chugiak) to minimize transportation issues & costs.
