SYA VOLLEYBALL MISSION
The mission of the Southwestern Youth Association Volleyball (SYAV) is to provide Western Fairfax County area youth with the opportunity to play recreational and competitive volleyball in a controlled environment that provides entertainment and enjoyment.
SYAV offers teams that play volleyball at 3 levels of competition and commitment:
House Volleyball is offered in the spring and fall and is for beginning to intermediate level players and will focus on the development of basic volleyball skills. Each week, house teams have one practice (usually on Monday or Tuesday) and one match (Wednesday for high school teams and Thursday for middle and elementary school teams). For more information about SYA’s house volleyball, click here.
Travel Volleyball is for more experienced and skilled payers and will focus developing advanced skills along with offensive and defensive schemes. Travel volleyball is offered for middle school players in the fall and for both middle and high school players in the spring. Travel teams practice twice a week and play matches against teams from other volleyball organizations on Wednesdays at various locations across Fairfax County.

Club Volleyball offers the highest level of competition for junior volleyball players. Tryouts for club volleyball are held in November with practices starting in December. The club season runs through May or June. Club teams practice twice a week with additional conditioning sessions, and compete in weekend tournaments (some multi-day).
