BOYS 12 AND UNDER TRAVELING TEAMS

In January, Epic forms traveling teams for boys 12 & Under (6th grade & below) that compete in the Southern California region. There is no minimum age, but boys in this program will typically be in 6th grade or below.

The age definitions, as established by USA Volleyball (the National Governing Body of Volleyball in the US), can be seen here: Age Definitions

Teams normally have 10 or 11 players. The number of teams that Epic fields is determined by the number of participants who wish to play on 12 & Under traveling teams. No prior experience with competitive volleyball is necessary.

Tryouts are held in mid to late January and the season runs through mid May. Teams practice 8 times per month.  During the season, the teams attend 3 single day tournaments, organized by the Southern California Volleyball Association (SCVA), which take place in Anaheim and 1 to 2 local tournaments. Teams in this program will not attend any of the SCVA multi-day tournaments.


BOYS HIGH SCHOOL TRAVELING TEAMS

In September, Epic forms traveling teams that will compete in the Southern California region. The number of teams that Epic fields is determined by the number of participants who wish to play on traveling teams.

Teams start practices in September at the conclusion of tryouts. Teams take a break at the end of January (for the HS Season) and then start up again in May and compete through June.

Teams consist of 11 to 12 players. Teams typically practice 8 times per month. Practices last for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. During the season, the teams attend all points tournaments, organized by the Southern California Volleyball Association (SCVA), which take place in Orange County. They will also participate in the 2-day Holiday Classic in December, 3 day Boys Qualifier in January and the 3 day Boys Classic in June. Elite teams will also compete in the Boys Junior National Tournament held the 1st week of July.

Age groups for these teams are:
18s-17s, seniors and juniors

BOYS 14 AND UNDER TRAVELING TEAMS

In September and again in November (after the completion of the youth boys volleyball league), Epic forms traveling teams for boys 14 & Under that compete in the Southern California region. There is no minimum age, but boys in this program will typically be in Middle School.

The age definitions, as established by USA Volleyball (the National Governing Body of Volleyball in the US), can be seen here: Age Definitions for Junior Volleyball

Teams normally have 10 or 11 players. The number of teams that Epic fields is determined by the number of participants who wish to play on 14 & Under traveling teams. No prior experience with competitive volleyball is necessary.

Tryouts are held the beginning of September for our 14s Elite team and then again at the beginning of November for our 14s Travel teams and the season runs through mid-June. Teams practice 8 times per month. Practices last for two hours. During the season, the teams attend numerous points tournaments (generally on Saturdays), organized by the Southern California Volleyball Association (SCVA), which typically take place in Anaheim. Teams will also participate the Boys Holiday Classic (in December), the Boys Qualifier (in January) and the Junior Boys Classic (in June).

Teams in this program are not scheduled to play in the Junior National Tournament. Teams that qualify for or choose to attend the Junior National Tournament can do so at an additional cost.


Payment Schedule

Invoices will be sent out electronically via email at the beginning of the month. Each month's fees are due by the 10th of that month.

An option to pay by credit card will be available.

Players will not be allowed to practice or play in tournaments if fees are not current.

*** SCVA sets the first date tryouts can be held (which for the 2019/2020 season is Sept 6th). Teams can be formed any time after that. In order to remain competitive Epic will be hosting our 1st tryout in order to form our 14 Elite team. All other 14s teams will be formed in November during the 2nd tryout.

It is not necessary to sign up in advance.
