WHAT TO EXPECT AT TRYOUTS?

FORMAT:  We utilize a high repetition circuit format so each athlete is provided significant contact with the ball in the evaluated core skills and every athlete is afforded the fairest evaluation possible.  

 

Each athlete will be evaluated in 3 core areas using a series of drilling: Athleticism/Physicality (measurables), Skill/Volleyball IQ (individual skill and game play drilling), Vocality/Team (coachability and team contribution).

 

As a result we will place each athlete at the highest possible level for her to be competitive.   Every position for every team that requires a tryout is placed via the tryout process.  NO POSITIONS are offered PRIOR to tryouts unless they are an INVITATION TEAM.

ATTENTION OHIO ATHLETES

7th and 8th grade Ohio Public School Athletes and all Ohio high school players are prohibited by Ohio regulations from participating in any outside volleyball activity until your season has been completed.  It is the responsibility of the parent and athlete to ensure they are meeting the compliance and eligibility guidelines of their state.  Contact your school AD or athletic association if you are uncertain about compliance.
