    What to Expect:

    • This is a closed tryout; therefore, please do not stand in the gym foyer or outside any gym door going into the gym to observe.  

    • Each player will be assigned a number for the entire tryout.

    • Basic skills such as serving overhanded, passing, setting, and hitting will be demonstrated, as well as, basic game play and rules of the sport.

    • There will be a short conditioning period to obeserve where they are in their physical fitness.

    • For the tryouts (depending on the number of girls trying out), there will be at least 1 cut before the final list is posted.

    • The final lists of teams will be posted on Friday, the 19th, on the volleyball website.

    • The final number on a team will be determined by the coach.

    • If your child does not make her desired team, there will be an option to sign up to be a manager.  This is determined by the coaches by interview, teacher evals, and availability of the student.  

    • If your child does not make her desired team, and she loves the sport, there are ways to continue to get better and try out the next year.  We have seen this happen multiple times!! Options are: Sand Volleyball (check out Birmingham Sand), Private and/or group lessons with individual coaches or with a business such as BlockOut Academy (Coach Nev), trying out for a travel volleyball team at , camps/clinics offered by local colleges. 

    • We know that your child may be very emotional during this week, and they may "think" they did horribly, but just encourage them to keep doing their absolute best.  They never know what they are capable of unless they try! So, just go for it!!

    • Evalutions begin on April 15th.  

    • Each player will be evaluated on the 4 basic skills taught in the clinic, on game play situations, knowledge of the game, attitude, coachability, and overall effort. 

    • If your child will be missing a day of tryouts, please let Coach Glover know so that she can make sure she is evaluated thoroughly.
