No one is guaranteed a spot on the team. You must work hard during the off season to earn your spot and compete for it EVERY YEAR. Positions are also not guaranteed. You will be required to play a position that is most beneficial for the team.
Tournaments are on Saturday's and are from 8:00 am - 7:00 pm. Athletes are expected to be present the entire time. Locations will be announced.
Fresh/Soph Dates : 9/9, 9/30 (possibly more later)
Junior Varsity Dates : 9/23, 10/7
Varsity Dates : 9/16, 10/14, 10/21
If you make the team, you are expected to attend every team function, which includes practices, games, and tournaments. You can miss no more than 5 units for the entire season:
1 practice = 1 unit
1 game = 1.5 units
1 tournament = 2 units
If you cannot make this time commitment, then you should reconsider joining the team. We must have committed athletes in order for us to do well and for you to have the best volleyball experience possible.
Each athlete is given 2 days on 8/14 and 8/15 to be evaluated, so it is critical to attend both days. We will have multiple rounds of cuts, the first round being at the end of the tryout on 8/15.
