During Tryouts:

  • Arrive Early: Plan to arrive at least 15-30 minutes before the scheduled start time to check in and warm up.
  • Positive Attitude: Approach the tryout with a positive and focused mindset. Confidence and a can-do attitude go a long way.

  • Listening Skills: Pay attention to the coaches' instructions and adapt to their feedback.
  • Teamwork: Demonstrate good sportsmanship and the ability to work well with others during drills and scrimmages.
  • Communication: Volleyball is a team sport; communicate effectively with your teammates on the court.

After Tryouts:

  • Respect the Process: Understand that not everyone will make the team, and that's okay. Use the experience as an opportunity to grow and improve.
  • Next Steps: An email will be sent to the email address provided during the registration process, letting you know teams have been defined. Teams will be posted on our website.
  • Plan for the Season: If you make the team, be ready to commit to practices, games, and team activities as outlined by the coaching staff.
  • Stay Active: Regardless of the outcome, stay active and continue to develop your skills for future opportunities.

Good luck, and give it your best effort!
