2024-2025 TRYOUT INFORMATION

TRYOUT FORMAT:
Players will complete a 1-day tryout with their age group.  Players may be asked to come in for a second evaluation.  All 15U-18U Teams will be announced at the end of tryouts. 10U-14U players will be notified of local or travel placement at the end of the tryout and will be re-evaluated in the fall to formalize teams.  Players not selected for a club team will be recommended for our EDGE Club Prep Academy which will develop their skills for possible placement in the future.

Sporting Edge Volleyball requires that everyone try out in their predetermined age groups with the exception of players who are in a lower age bracket but attend school at a grade higher (ex. 13U but attends the 8th grade).  Please see the USA Volleyball Age Divisions chart to determine which tryout to attend.  

COST:
The tryout fee is paid through our online registration and covers court time, evaluations, and a tryout shirt. The tryout fee is $60 if registered before June 1. $65 if paid June 1 to the day prior to the tryout.  Same day and walk-ups(cash only) are $70. There are no refunds once registered.  

Check in will begin 30 minutes prior to start time.
