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. 


Pre-Tryout 13 and 14 age levels 

A pre-tryout is scheduled for September 25th.  More details to follow soon. 


Tryouts 13 and 14 age levels 

Tryouts are scheduled for October 1st and 2nd at the Oshkosh 20th Ave YMCA.  It is not mandatory that you attend both tryout dates (Oct. 1 and 2), but strongly encouraged to have the best possible evaluation by coaches.


Pre-Tryout 15, 16 and 17 age levels

A pre-tryout is tentatively scheduled for October 30th. More details to follow soon.


Tryouts 15, 16 and 17 age levels

Tryouts are scheduled for November 12th and 13th.  It is not mandatory that you attend both tryout dates (Nov. 12 and 13), but strongly encouraged to have the best possible evaluation by coaches.  




 Lightning Program registration deadline is approaching: August 26th.

We would like to announce our new "Lightning Program" for the younger players!  This program is an introduction to volleyball for those players entering grades 2-6 in the fall of 2016.  The Lightning program is designed to gain interest and knowledge of the game of volleyball and provide a fun environment while doing so.  More information about the program as well as how to register is located under the "Lightning Program" tab on the left hand side of the page.

  ***  There is a correction on the brochure that was handed out at the OWHS Vball camp.  There were two different costs posted.  The correct cost is $60.  The correction has been made to the brochure on this website.  










Badger Region has put together a family guide to club volleyball to help all parents and players to know "what's going on" in the world of club.  Check it out under our links tab on the left hand side of the page.
