2015 Junior Nationals

The 2014 Junior National Tournament will be held in:
New Orleans!
The tournament website is here.

This tournament is only for teams who win their region's Bid Tournament
or do extremely well at one of the National Qualifier above.

Coach Houser's team have qualified for Jr National in 2006, 2009 and 2012!
Here are the 2006 Atlanta pics and here are the 2009 Miami pics,
and here are the pics from our weekend in Columbus OH in 2012!

Coach Houser's stepdaughter, Lauren Clary, qualified with her 17's team, and they played in Salt Lake City in 2005! Touch here to see those pictures.

Junior Nationals is a tournemnt where only the best teams in the country participate. This is because teams must qualify for it. The location changes every year.

Yes, AAU Nationals in Orlando is also a national tournament, but that's a tournemnt in which any team can play. Not only that, but in AAU you can choose to play in any division you wish: the powerful, the good, the ok, or the "We're here on vacation" division.
To participate in AAU Nationals you must have enough players, all players and coaches be AAU members, and an entry fee.
The tournament is held in Orlando, so that's fun!
Each year there were approximately 1000 teams at AAU Nationals.

2015 AAU Nationals!

2015 AAU Junior National Volleyball Champions will probably be
at the ESPN Wide World of Sports
and the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando FL.
The 2014 website is here.

* Since I can remember, it's been held in Orlando Florida. 
* In 2010, the Roanoke 17's attended. 
* In 2011, Roanoke United 17's and 15's participated.  In 2012, Roanoke United 17's participated.
A team's results are ALWAYS better than their results at Junior Nationals, or even one of the National Qualifiers. 
Yes, the competition is usually that much weaker.
