Preparing For Tryouts

What to Know
Club tryouts can be very nerve-wracking for both players and parents.  Parents, please do everything in your power to encourage your daughter and to help keep them calm as the day goes on. 

Tryouts normally will take place on one day with multiple age groups being evaluated.  Please arrive 30-45 minutes before your scheduled tryout time to ensure getting checked in and prepared for tryouts to start.

Coaches are looking for a variety of things during tryouts.
  • Versatility- Coaches love players that are able and willing to play multiple positions.
  • Specific Skills- A coach may be looking for a specific position to be filled on their roster so may be focusing on a specific skill during tryouts.
  • Willingness to Compromise- When a coach asks your daughter "What position do you play?" the answer "Whatever you need" goes a long way.  A player that tells a coach that she only is willing to play a certain position is probably going to get passed along.
  • Potential- Don't play it safe!  Coaches will notice the potential, not the errors.
  • Hustle- A girl that is hustling on the court will probably get noticed.  A girl that hustles to and from water breaks, back into line, picking up ball, etc, will get noticed.  Be the first girl back from breaks!
  • Past Experience with a Player- A coach may notice a player that they have worked with before, comes recommended from another coach, or that has a sister that has played with the club before.
 
AAU Membership
The first thing that you will need to do before tryouts is register for an AAU Volleyball Athlete Membership HERE.

What Should I Wear For Tryouts?
 
Wear something that will make you stand out from the crowd.  A shirt with your name on the back, colorful spandex, sparkly headband, etc.  These will help grab the coaches attention and make it easy to identify you.
 
How Are Teams Chosen?
 
Club teams will need to be filled by position first.  Setter, middle, outside, opposite, libero.  Teams will have anywhere between 9-12 players depending on age and level of play.
