CVA USA Travel Volleyball

Centennial Volleyball Academy participates in both USA and AAU Volleyball.

The CVA USA Travel teams are for athletes looking for a higher level of competition and a higher level of commitment to the sport of volleyball. Teams are coached by paid experienced coaches and play in tournaments both inside and outside the State of Iowa.

  • Each CVA USA Travel team will be comprised of 8 to 10 players.
  • All CVA USA Travel teams are formed through a tryout process, and are available to girls in the 12U – 15U age divisions of USA volleyball (6th – 9th grade).  CVA plans to have one USA Travel Team per age/grade level. Paid coaches are hired by CVA and are under the direction of CVA Director of Coaching and Centennial High School head volleyball coach Jessica Rinehart.
  • 12U teams play with Volley Lite balls. All other teams play with standard volleyballs.
  • CVA USA Travel teams begin practices in December and will play through the USA Iowa Regional Non-qualifier Tournament in April 2023.
  • CVA USA Travel Teams will play in Omaha during President’s Weekend in February.
  • CVA USA Travel Teams will play in a total of 6-8 tournaments during the season. Team coaches, under discussion with players, parents, and the CVA Board, may elect to play in additional tournaments within team budget.
  • CVA would like parents to understand that Travel teams require an extra level of commitment compared to recreational teams. Girls are expected to play in multi-day travel tournaments and the USA Regional tournament in April. These tournaments provide athletes with unique opportunities for competition, personal development, and team bonding. They are often considered the highlight of the season.  Out-of-pocket costs for families can reach $1000 for multi-day out of state tournaments because of hotel costs, meals, travel, souvenirs, etc.
  • Expected season fees for the CVA USA Travel volleyball program are $975*. This includes two jerseys, team equipment, team tournament registration fees, coach fees, and two practices per week.

*Season fees are subject to change due to gym availability and change in gym and tournament costs. CVA is currently using the school gyms through the Ankeny Parks & Rec program.
