Be sure you know the Do's and Don'ts of Club Tryouts.
The Arizona Region of USA Volleyball has helpful links so you're ready for the big day!
We are super excited for the 2021-22 Girl's Club Volleyball Season!
It's not too early to be thinking about Open Gyms and Tryouts.
We have updated our new season information page here.
If you have any questions, please contact us. We're always happy to help!
Pre-Tryout Requirement - All individuals must register or renew their Arizona Region membership online for the 2022 season PRIOR to the Open House evaluation sessions and Tryouts. You must provide the club with your 2022 membership card or PAID confirmation page that shows you have registered for the 2022 season in order to tryout with any club. Click here to go to Join the Region. Please plan to purchase your membership in plenty of time prior to the needed date as there are some issues with the SportsEngine member management system that may cause some problems.
Age Eligibility - Not sure what age category you must play, enter your birthdate here and see what age category you must play.
NOTE: For those players who are age eligible for 17s but whose birthday falls in July or August, an 18s membership with SafeSport requirement must be purchased because the season is not technically over until August 31st.
For the 2021-22 Season
The Open House Period for 12s - 14s teams is October 27th - November 5th
The Open House Period for 15s - 18s players is November 9th - 19th with blackout date of November 13th for the State High School Championships. Nothing is allowed on the Blackout date.
IMPORTANT - Private lessons are restricted during the Open House period for each applicable age group. No private lessons may be held for a player in the age group of the Open House period in effect.
The “private lessons” were being abused by clubs to organize teams before tryouts and were also keeping kids from being able to attend other Open House sessions.
Any coach found in violation will result in the affiliated club being fined $300 per person per event. If the coach is unaffiliated at the time, the club that hires them will be fined.
Private Lessons MAY NOT be held for any age player November 13th.
Tryouts may begin for 12s - 14s teams on or after November 6th
Tryouts may begin for 15s - 18s teams on or after November 20th
IMPORTANT - No club may hold tryouts or ask players to commit to their club before the designated tryout dates or they (the club, coach and/or player involved) may be subject to sanction - including but not limited to suspension for the year. Girls in high school that are age eligible for 14's may not tryout on the 14's tryout dates unless they are after the start dates of the 15's and older age groups.
