Age Division Change:
USAV recently changed the age division cut-off date to July 1 from Sept 1. This will adjust some players age groups from previous years. We know relationships could have been formed and players may want to remain in their previous age groups. We will take this under consideration, but we also want players to look at the benefits of playing in their age division another (if applicable). There are positives and negatives to making a change. From the club’s stand point we look to form the best teams possible within each age group. We look to keep players within their designated age groups based on what USA Volleyball sets as policy, but there are exceptions to that. Please click here to verify your new age division.

We are requiring you to fill out a waiver before participation releasing the club and facility from any liability. We will have hand sanitizer on hand, implement social distancing when possible, coaches/staff will wear masks, Players are required to wear masks when not actually trying out. We do not have parents watch tryouts normally, but we will be strictly enforcing this policy to limit the number of people within the building. If a player has been exposed or is showing symptoms of Covid-19 please notify us and do not attend tryouts.
