Q: Why do tryouts seem to be held earlier this year?
A: Clubs from across the country typically hold tryouts anywhere between July - November. We have learned from last year that a lot of planning and logistics are involved with Club Season. We want to hit the ground running when the season starts in November, so we are holding tryouts a bit earlier this year. Many players are already playing for school teams and in Fall Leagues, so many players will be hitting their stride when tryouts are held on September 22nd & 23rd.
Q: What age group (U10-U14) should we tryout for?
A: USA Volleyball requires that players be of a particular age for the duration of the club season, which is assumed to end on August 31st. To determine your players age division, you can ask the question: "How old will my player be on August 31, 2018?". The answer determines their age group. You can also click here to determine your age group.
Q: What if I cant attend tryouts on both days?
A: Attendance on both days is highly encouraged, but you must attend at least one day to be evaluated for a Club team. If you are only able to attend one day, please contact Kealani (kealani@clubvvolleyball) and indicate which day you will attend. Make-up tryouts may be arranged in certain circumstances by contacting Kealani.
Q: I am not sure what team I should tryout for because I dont know where I compare competitively.
A: There is no harm in trying out for the most competitive team possible. Coaches will work to place you on a team and level that best fits your skills and ability.
Q: How long is the club season?
A: November - April. Practices typically start in November and the last tournaments are generally played in April. Teams that qualify for national championship tournaments (AAU and USAV) will extend their season into May and June.
Q: Will I have to play on Sundays?
A: SELECT teams travel and compete in national qualifying tournaments, which often take place on Sundays. If you play on a SELECT team, you are expected to play in tournaments, which means Sunday play. ELITE teams also offer a competitive level of play but do not play on Sundays. COMP and TEAM ACADEMY teams also do not play on Sundays.
