Boys and Girls in Grades 2-4
Our Grades 2-4 program is co-ed. There are no formal assessments. When registered players attend their first practice (TBA, but should begin the week of September 13th) they will be separated into teams. This group will have one practice per week and a game or practice/scrimmage on Saturdays. Coaches are still needed!
Boys and Girls in grades 5-6
Our grades 5-6 program is co-ed. We will be holding assessments on Saturday, August 28th from 2-3pm for those whose last names begin with A-L and from 3-4pm for those whose names begin with M-Z. We will be attempting to form evenly skilled teams, so it is very important for players to attend these assessments. Evenly skilled teams make for a more fun and exciting season! Coaches are still needed!
**Boys in 6th grade may opt to be assessed for a middle school boys’ team. This assessment will be held on Friday, August 27 from 7:30-8:30pm at The Fieldhouse. If you would like to be assessed for a middle school boys’ team, please contact me at email@example.com.
Middle School Girls, Grades 7-8
Exciting news for this group! CYA is offering different levels of play this season in this age group only. Please read on for details on the different levels of play, in addition to the assessment schedule for the upcoming weekend.
To be considered for the Travel or Select levels of play, you must attend the assessments! All assessments will be held at The Fieldhouse in Chantilly.
Middle School Girls TRAVEL team:
This is for more advanced players and local travel around Fairfax County will be necessary. There will be 1-2 practices per week. The first practice will be held at The Fieldhouse in Chantilly on Tuesday, August 30th. Once we receive our gym allocations from FCPS, the practices will likely switch to Mondays. After the first week of practice, this team will have 1-2 practices per week and they will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays or Saturdays. Games are on Wednesday evenings. If you are unable to attend on any of these days, you should not try out for this team. The assessment for this middle school travel team will be held at The Fieldhouse this Friday, August 27th, from 6-7:30pm. Attendance is mandatory! Invitations will be sent out by email after the assessments and must be accepted by 9am on Saturday, August 28th. If you do not respond by this time, your spot will be given to another player. If you are not chosen for the travel team, you can attend the select assessments on Saturday, August 28th.
Middle School Girls SELECT teams:
This is for more experienced players who may not have as much time or who do not wish to travel. There will be one practice per week, which we hope to start during the week of September 6th. This may have to be postponed to the following week depending on when FCPS approves our gym allocations. Usually, we have our allocations much earlier but, due to COVID-19, they felt it was necessary to wait until school began to make their decisions. Games will be held on Saturdays. To be considered for a select team, you must attend the assessment on Saturday, August 28th! It will be held at The Fieldhouse. If you are not chosen for a select team, you will be automatically placed on a house team. Please let me know prior to assessments if there are any days you are not available. This is very important because after a player is placed, it is very difficult to make changes.
Middle School Girls HOUSE teams:
There will be no assessments for house teams. Players will be assigned based on their availability, so please let me know if there are any days your player is not available for practices. This is very important because after a player is placed, it is very difficult to make changes. There will be one practice per week, which we hope to start during the week of September 6th. This may have to be postponed to the following week depending on when FCPS approves our gym allocations. Usually, we have our allocations much earlier but due to COVID-19, they felt it was necessary to wait until school began to make their decisions. Games will be held on Saturdays.
Coaches are still needed!!

High School Boys
Assessments will be held at the Fieldhouse on Thursday, September 2nd from 7:30-9:00pm.
All players must be registered for CYA Fall Volleyball to attend the assessment. It is important for all registered players attend this assessment so we can plan how to best proceed with this season.
