Club Tryout Information

The purpose of tryouts at Attack is to assess an individual player’s abilities to place the player on the appropriate level team so they may have fun, improve and excel during the upcoming volleyball season.   ALL players must tryout every year.   No player will be placed on a team until they have completed the tryout process.

To accomplish this goal, our top-level coaches evaluate players as they participate in drills designed to test their basic volleyball skills.  Players are evaluated by multiple coaches throughout the course of the tryout session, the coaches then work together on the team placement process.

Players are notified at the end of each tryout session if they have been selected to a specific team.  If coaches would like to see them return for further evaluation, they will communicate this clearly.  As always, it is our goal to place each athlete on a team that matches their ability level.  Communication is important during the tryout process.  If you have questions, please stay after and ask.  Our coaches are happy to discuss your individual players situation.

Overview of a Typical Tryout Day

  1. Sign up online before the day of tryout attending, with the appropriate age level team that you are trying out for.  There is a $35 tryout fee, but your athlete may participate in all tryout sessions that week until selected on a team.
  2. Arrive 15-30 minutes early to check in and receive name tag.
  3. When registering, please indicate the highest level of play preferred (National, National Select, State or Regional) and coaches will evaluate from there. For a description of the different team levels please visit our team description page. **It is not guaranteed you will play at this level - evaluators and Age Group Coordinators may ask you to play at a level higher or lower than desired based on skill.
  4. Players can then change into their volleyball gear, rack their bags, and report to the courts. Players are invited to warm-up on their own prior to the start of the tryout but we will have a warm up on each age level court.
  5. Next, the actual tryout takes place. The coaching staff will circulate during the session to evaluate the skill level of the players.
  6. At the end of the session, the coaching staff will address the players to discuss the team placement process, future tryouts, general Q&A, etc.
  7. Parents will also have a time to speak to head coaches after each tryout session.
