FAQs

What if I can't attend tryouts?  Is there a make-up tryout?
If you are unable to attend the August 1st & 2nd tryout, please contact Kealani (kealani@clubvvolleyball.com) to arrange an alternate tryout date.  There will also be an official make-up tryout held on Saturday, August 24 from 9:00 am - 11:00 am.  Please contact us to let us know your interest in make-up tryouts.

Note: we recognize that a number of players will be attending the BYU Volleyball Camp on August 1st, and may arrive after the start of tryouts on that day.  We're glad to see players getting as much training as they can.  If you will be arriving at a later time on the first day of tryouts, just email us so we can make a note.

What level of team and age group should I tryout for?
We always encourage players to tryout for the level that they feel will challenge them the most.  During the tryout, we will evaluate and help players find the best fit for them (which may mean certain players are offered a spot on a higher level than what they tried out for, or certain players may be offered a spot at another level where we think they would find more success).  All players will be offered a spot on a team -- there are no cuts.

Players will be placed on teams that correspond with their age group.  For example, players 12 & younger = U12; ages 13 and 14 = U14; ages 15 and 16 = U16, and ages 17 and 18 = U18.  During the tryout we will help players navigate to the appropriate age group. 

When do we find out what team we made?  When do we have to commit?
At the conclusion of tryouts on August 2nd (from 6:30 pm -7:30 pm), coaches will announce their offers and meet with their players and parents to discuss the team and club season details.  During that meeting, players/parents will be provided with a financial agreement.  You may sign the agreement and make your financial deposit to secure your spot on the team -- or we allow up to 48 hours for you to consider the offer.  After that time if we don't receive a commitment, we open up that spot on the team for another player.  Please contact us if you are unable to be present for the team offers on August 2nd and we will let you know which team your player made.  

How long is the Boys' Club Season?
The official Boys’ Club Volleyball Season will run September 9 - December 7 for Gold & Silver teams, and September 9 - November 30 for Bronze teams.  During August we will be handling administrative duties, such as registering players with the AAU and ordering uniform packages.  

When do practices start?
Official practices start on Monday, September 9th for all teams.  Practices are held Monday/Wednesday for Silver and Bronze teams; and Monday/Wednesday/Thursday for Gold teams.  There will be several informal Open Gym sessions during August for players to begin training.  Teams will also be encouraged to have a "team bonding" event prior to the first day of practice in order to get to know each other and coaches.

What can we expect at tournaments?
Tournaments are all-day events that typically last 5-7 hours.  Tournaments begin with a round of pool-play -- usually starting at 8:00am or 9:00am -- followed by bracket-play and championships.  Tournament play typically concludes around 2:00p - 3:00p in the afternoon, but can run even later.  Teams can generally expect to play anywhere from 5-8 games during a tournament -- all depending on the number of teams entered in the tournament and how far a team advances.  All tournament events will be held at the Utah Athletic Center (UAC) -- a 12-court volleyball facility located in North Salt Lake.
