TRYOUTS FREQUENT QUESTIONS ?
Q: What should I wear to tryouts?
A: A t-shirt (we recommend long sleeves for diving!), shorts or leggings, kneepads (optional), hair pulled back, and court shoes or non-marking athletic shoes. Please change in to your shoes at the gym to help us keep our courts clean.
Q: I am young/old for my grade. What’s my age group for club volleyball?
A: Please refer to the above age chart to determine which age group to try out for. We will occasionally recommend that an athlete move up an age group to keep players in the same grade together or if the directors believe it will benefit the athlete and the team. We will try to keep athletes in the same grade together as much as possible.
Q: What do I need to bring to tryouts?
A: You MUST bring your current AAU membership card No exceptions! We are not set up to handle AAU registrations on-site, so please do this ahead of time.
Q: I'm a parent. Can I watch tryouts?
A: Spectators are not allowed in the Wellness Center at any time. The tryout will be closed to staff and athletes.
Q: How soon after tryouts will we find out about team placement?
A: If you're coming to the June Tryouts, offer letters will START to be sent at the end of the AAU/USAV Nationals. June Tryouts will be managed as a sort of College Early Admission and around 50%-80% of the available spots will be filled during the June Session. If you're coming to the July Tryouts, we will continue to offer spots in our teams starting on the day after tryouts. on the first day of tryouts for the age groups and will continue to form the teams through the makeup tryouts. You will find out no later than 72 hours after tryouts for your age group via the email or phone you provided during registration.
Q: I am getting pressured by another club to commit to their team – what should I do?
A: Don’t be pressured; call us first at 754-300-6306! We may not be able to guarantee a spot if tryouts are ongoing, but we believe in transparency throughout this process and will be very honest about where you stand.
