2013-14 Year-End Results

2014 has been a great year for Circle City Volleyball Club with great results at all levels.  The goal for most clubs across the country is to qualify in the Open Division of USAV Junior Nationals.  While, qualifying just one team is a great accomplishment in itself, Circle was able to qualify 5 teams.  Circle City was 1 of only 8 clubs to qualify 5 ore more teams in the Open Division for USAV Junior Nationals.

Circle City works to play the most competitive schedule of any club in Indiana while also keeping travel reasonable.  We are fortunate to have the Mideast Qualifier in our backyard allowing our teams to play other clubs from across the country.  In the 2015 season, Chicago will also host a new National Qualifier giving our teams even more opportunity to play teams from a distance while still keeping travel to a minimum. 

Here is a list of some of our year-end accomplishments: 

  • 18 Purple completes an incredible season with a 3rd place finish at USAV Junior Nationals only losing one match to eventual Winner  Coast 18 Mizuno out of Southern California.  The 18 Open Division of USAV Junior Nationals is by far the strongest year end event in the Country in the 18 & Under Division.  18 Purple also won both National Qualifiers that it participated in. 
  • 18 Black finishes 28th out of 49 teams in the 18 Open Division of AAU's. 
  • 18 White finishes their season with a 19th place finish out of 87 teams at AAU's competing in the 18 Club Division.  They narrowly missed out on advancing from their last pool losing 15-13 in the third to WAVE 18 Jon out of Southern California.   
  • 17 Purple claims 7th place at USAV Junior Nationals. The 17 Open Division of USAV Junior Nationals is by far the strongest year end event in the Country in the 17 & Under Division.  17 Purple also won The Northeast Qualifier.
  • 17 Black finishes 13th in the 17 National Division of USAV Junior Nationals.  They narrowly missed a minimum of a top 8 finish after losing their challenge match 15-13 in the third set.  What an incredible run knocking off some 1's teams from some top-level clubs. 
  • 16 Purple ends their season on a 30-2 run winning three straight tournaments before finishing 5th in 16 Open at AAU's. 
  • 16 Black finishes 25th out of 80 teams in the 16 Premier Division at AAU's
