Entering our 17th year, Jaguars Volleyball Club has continued to have a profound impact on growing volleyball in the Capital District.  Thriving through program innovation, quality and depth of coaching staff and our commitment to our athletes, our program has risen to one of the top in the area.

Our mission is to develop the young athletes to be the best volleyball players they can be while fostering positive life skills that they will take into adulthood and through the rest of their lives. Both on an off the court we strive to make valuable impressions through positive, constructive, demanding and compassionate instruction. 

We offer competitive travel teams for 12u - 18u, and non competitive team play/skills clinics for 5u - 11u.

2023-2024 Tryout Registration Information

2023-2024 Tryout Registration is OPEN for all levels!

STEP 1: Create a Sport Engine Account

Parents must first create an account and then add their child(ren) to their account before registering for tryouts. Parents must register their child for tryouts. Players cannot register themselves. This causes a lot of problems later on in the system.

STEP 2: Register for Tryouts

Attendance at all tryout dates is not mandatory, however we do highly recommend attending both tryout dates.

2023-2024 Tournament Player Cost Information


Due to the growing cost to play club volleyball we will be running two large fundraisers.

At the October parent meeting we will hand out David's Cookie Dough order forms. This is a great fundraiser and profits from each players sales will go directly to them!

Last year our Calendar Raffle was very successful! We would love your help in December/January to ask friends, family and local businesses for gift card/item donations. Parents  will sell raffle tickets in January and each day in the month of February we will raffle them off. Check out our Facebook and Instagram to see all the amazing items that were donated and raffled off!
