New USAV Membership Fees Information
The Arizona Region has changed it's policy on USAV Membership Fees. All players must pay the annual $55.00 membership fee to participate in any USAV Sanctioned events (practices, tournament leagues, the Youth Academy, and/or club tryouts) that are held during the season. If a player does not compete on a competitive team (in other words, the player registered for training only and the player's name does not appear on a team roster) during the club season, they may request a $30 refund from the Arizona Region. The refund will make the amount paid to USAV only $25, as originally stated.

For more information concerning the Arizona Region fee change, please click here. CCJ will assist any club member in requesting the refund.





Over 100 teams from Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas, and Mexico participated in the 19th Annual Cactus Classic Invitational tournament, hosted by Club Cactus Volleyball. An army of CCJ parents, coaches, and volunteers help manage 456 volleyball matches on 20 courts at three different sites. The event ran like clockwork and gave all CCJ players a chance to play in a high-level National event in their own backyard!

Many CCJ teams had the opportunity to play teams from Mexico, creating a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spread goodwill among the two countries while playing volleyball. Smiles were seen before and after each match while the players exchanged conversations and gifts.

CCJ earned six trophies at this year's event. Taking home hardware was CCJ 18-Mizuno (18U Saguaro Division semi-finalist, third overall), CCJ 16-Mizuno (16U Saguaro Division runner-up, second overall), and CCJ 12-Mizuno (12U Saguaro Division semi-finalist, fourth overall) that finished in the top divisions; other teams were CCJ 16-Navy (16U Octotillo Division second place); CCJ 16-Black (Yucca Division second place); CCJ 16-Red (Pincushion Division second place); and CCJ 16-White (Octotillo Division second place).

The 2015 event will mark the club's 20th Annual Cactus Classic Invitational and will return home to the Tucson Convention Center with all matches under one roof. Join CCJ for the party in 2015!


Thank you to everyone that attended the Club Cactus Juniors Player Evaluations over the past two weekends to check out our club and be considered for a team.
