Other tryout details

  • We believe in teamwork, positive attitude, leadership, athletic abilities and continuous improvement. As such, at tryouts, each athlete must earn her position by exhibiting the above characteristics as well as their passion for the sport. 
  • We want every athlete to have equal opportunity and will not promise a position on our teams prior to tryouts. 
  • Every player will be evaluated on all around skills and scrimmage play. 
  • Assessments will be done exactly the same way by participating coaches so that no athlete is overlooked in the process. 
  • We prefer a player not remain with the same coach for more than two consecutive season or two calendar years so they can experience different teaching styles and personalities 
  • Additional tryouts may be given as long as the same opportunity is also offered to other eligible athletes 
  • An athlete who is not available on the try out date shall not be placed on an open/national team without additional evaluation by the coaches committee 
  • Multi sport athletes must commit to volleyball as their top sport priority if they elect to try out for a travel or national team 
  • Head Coaches are assigned prior to tryouts. 
  • We encourage athletes to play their age group.
