Fox Valley Thunder Volleyball: Welcome

2007 NEW Thunder logo - small

Welcome to the Fox Valley Thunder Volleyball Club!  

   

Thank you to everyone who showed up for the informational meeting!  If you were unable to attend, the information from the meeting is now posted in the handouts section.

 

What is the difference between pre-tryouts and tryouts 

Some families may be new to the whole club volleyball experience so we wanted to share the answer to one of the most popular questions, what is the difference between a pre-tryout and a  tryout and do we HAVE to attend both?  

A pre-tryout is chance for players to fine tune their skills before the "actual" tryout and familiarize themselves with what a tryout will look like.  Some clubs call them "tune-ups".  It's another opportunity to be in the gym to take some extra swings, sets, passes and serves!

A tryout is the actual evaluation date where players are put into small groups and rotated through a combination of drills based on all fundamentals and skills of volleyball.  Players are then selected to be made offers to play for FVT based on these 2 day tryouts.  

 

You do not have to attend a pre-tryout to be considered for a team during the tryout sessions.  However you need to attend at least one day of tryouts in order to be considered for a team and it's best to attend both days of the tryouts to have the best possible chance to be evaluated.
