Greater Cincinnati Junior Olympic Volleyball Clubs
The Ohio Valley Region is the governing body for all JO (Junior Olympic) clubs and tournaments in Ohio as a part of the larger USA Volleyball organization. To get information on how to form a JO team, or how to find existing teams in Ohio you can visit their Website. The following is a list of JO clubs in our area. There are some smaller clubs that are not listed here or that do not offer tryouts. You may want to attend multiple meetings and tryouts to gain some perspective on this select sport. When you ask about the level of play you'll hear club directors refer to "National" and "Regional" teams. National are elite/competitive teams that travel more. Regional teams still travel some but try to stay more local and fees are less because of this. Tryout dates are usually not set until mid October and they tend to overlap each other so you will need to pick your tryouts carefully.
This list has been compiled to the best of our knowledge and there may be new clubs that are not listed here. You can always go to the Ohio Valley Region Website to find clubs near you. The database is searchable by area code to help.

Things you should know when you decide to attend a tryout for a club: (1) Who is the coach of the team I am trying to make? (2) What is the expected cost not including travel expenses? (3) Where do they practice and how often? (4) What is the expected start and end date for season. Some teams end their season at Regionals in Columbus in mid-May, others travel to Florida or Chicago to end their season at a larger tournament in mid-June. A few will qualify for Nationals and end their season over the 4th of July weekend. (5) How many spots are they trying to fill at tryouts or are they having multiple teams in the age division you are after in case you don't make the top team.
