Tigers Competitive Youth Teams (OVA)
These teams are the highest skill set level of our programs and compete in Ontario Volleyball Association (OVA) tournaments. Team age levels range from 13 and under (13U) through to 18U teams.
Expectations for athletes chosen for these teams are much higher as attendance and commitment to practices, tournaments and travel are required. Athletes are expected to have moderate to advanced skill levels to be selected for one of these teams.
Equal play time is not guaranteed, as part of the expectation for these teams is to place as high in each tournament as possible.
Teams practice a minimum of twice weekly and compete in at least one tournament per month during the OVA season. All teams have the option of competing in the National event for their age group if there is one, and some teams also elect to play in additional tournaments in the United States.
Venues can be anywhere from Ottawa to Windsor and from Sudbury to Fort Erie, so travel and accommodation expenses need to be anticipated on top of the Club registration fees.
Open tryouts for these teams take place in September of each year. The OVA season then runs from November through to April of the following year.
