Starting with the 2012 USA Volleyball Boys Junior National Championships, organizers have decided to combine the 12 Club and 13 Club Divisions in an effort to help spur growth in this sector, which has experienced low registration numbers in recent years. All 12-and-under teams and players are still encouraged to enter in the 13 Club Division, which will play on the 13-and-under net height of 7’ 4 1/8”.
The Junior Nationals will continue to have Open Divisions in each age group from ages 14 to 18, alongside club titles for ages 13 to 18. USAV said that by combining the two lowest age groups, all boys will be able to participate and the hope is that the 12 Club Division will return at some point in the future.
The boys Junior Nationals are scheduled for July 1-8 at the Dallas Convention Center.
