What is the difference between a Pre-tryout and a Tryout?
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 a chance for players to fine tune their skills before the "actual" tryout and familiarize themselves with what an actual tryout will look like. Some clubs call them "tune-ups." It's another opportunity to be in the gym and take some extra swings, sets, passes and serves!
The 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 do 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.
-check out the 2017 tournament highlights page. Each weekend FVT will highlight the teams who have competed.
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.
