Tryout Process & Dates

Many factors go into making teams, though none of them are “political.” The coaching staff makes decisions based on volleyball skills, coach-ability, future potential, and character.
The program will have three teams (Varsity, Junior Varsity, Freshman). There are limited spots available in the program. Please be respectful of the coaches’ decisions and the program’s process.

  • Monday, August 3: one session (3 – 6 p.m.)
    • Each player who tried out will be emailed tryout feedback.
    • There are no individual in-person meetings this year.
    • Those who make a team will be given further instructions.

Players who make a team will be given feedback on their potential role(s) in the fall, future team activities, and team paperwork to be turned in.
Players who do not make a team will be given justification, and then the ways they can continue to be involved in the program and/or volleyball.
