Entry for Junior 2024-25 competitions now open

The Volleyball England Junior Grand Prix Series for 2024-25 is now open for affiliated clubs to enter.

Competitions are open to the U18, U16, U15 and U14 age groups.  


U18 Grand Prix Series 

This year’s U18 competition will be restructured into Super Series, Gold, Siver, and Bronze Pools, with region pools below that, with promotion and relegation featuring between them. 

The final round of five will be a Last 8 held in Kettering for the top national side and Gold, Silver, and Bronze Cups for the sides placed ninth and below in the national rankings. 

A full explanation of the new Super Series and the structure of the U18 Grand Prix Series can be viewed here


U16 Grand Prix Series 

The U16 competition will be played over four 4 rounds of competition split into the Tier 1 and Tier 2 format, with Tier 2 teams have the option to enter all four Grand Prix at the start of the season via one payment or per Grand Prix as in previous years. 

Tier 1 is for experienced teams wanting to compete at a National Level and will feature a Last 8 as well as Gold, Silver, and Bronze Cups (depending on entry numbers). 

Tier 2 is for less experienced teams wanting to play competitive matches within a regionalised area to minimise travel.  


U15 Grand Prix Series 

The U15 Tier 1 Grand Prix Series starts in January and has three rounds of competition concluding in March. 

There will be a Tier 2 4v4 competition in November, but it is hoped that some of these teams will be encouraged to enter tier 1 competitions after Christmas.  

U14 Grand Prix Series 

Two rounds of competitions will be staged for U14 players in a 4v4 format, which will based regionally – following a successful introduction last year. 


Host a Grand Prix 

All Grand Prix are hosted by one of the teams – without these volunteers the competitions would not be able to go ahead. 

If you would like to volunteer to host, please register your interest via this form and return if before 31st July 2024.
