Tryouts Information for 2020-2021 Season

TRYOUT REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE 2020-2021 SEASON!   

Come play volleyball with A5! Now ranked the #1 volleyball club in the entire country! Our dynamic training system, with exceptional systems and coaches, produces high-end competitive teams.

All those camps and clinics are great - but this is the real thing - playing on an A5 club team, wearing the A5 uniform, bonding with teammates, and experiencing real match play.  Over the course of a whole season, athletes get so much instruction and experience with match and tournament play, that playing on a club team is actually a great value considering the number of contact hours. There's just no substitute for the experience and FUN of a season of club volleyball! 

TRYOUT REGISTRATION 
The registration fee for tryouts is $50 for 13s-18s, $40 for 10s-12s and must be paid in advance.  Walk-ups will be $60.  This fee includes an A5 T-shirt.  Register Now!

After signing in as a registered user (or creating an account if you are a new user), you can add your dependent athlete to your profile and then register them for tryouts. Parents sign-in here.

NEW THIS YEAR 
USA Volleyball requires that each athlete register within their region - our region's governing body is the Southern Region Volleyball Association, or SRVA.  Prior to tryouts, you must register on the SRVA website and pay a $10.00 tryout registration fee that will turn into a full-year USAV membership once your athlete is placed on a team.  Registration on the SRVA/USAV website will not open until Oct 1st at the earliest.  The region ask that parents and families be patient with this process.  Should you have any questions in regards to this requirement please contact us. 

13-ELIGIBLE AND 14-ELIGIBLE TEAMS:
A5 will hold a single tryout for each age group. It is our intent to field six or seven teams in the 13U and 14U age groups. The initial tryout on October 10th for 13U and 14U is mandatory for every player trying out, and we will field up to 5 teams as the result of this tryout.  There will be a second day of tryouts for 13’s (Tuesday, October 13th, 5:30 - 8:00) and 14’s (Monday, October 12th, 5:30-8:00) to form one or two additional teams.  It is required that each athlete have a parent attend tryouts.

12-ELIGIBLE, 11-ELIGIBLE, AND 10-ELIGIBLE AND YOUNGER TEAMS:
Tryouts are on October 11th, and teams will be formed immediately after tryouts with no cuts. A second tryout will be held on the evening of Wednesday, October 14th from 5:30-8:00 to fill any gaps in existing teams or form additional teams.  It is required that each athlete have a parent attend tryouts.

We ask that when you come to the gym, you have a plan in mind, having done your research, knowing in advance if A5 is the club for you.  Our goal is to leave the gym with our teams in place - teams comprised of athletes committed to excellence who want to be with A5, and families who are excited to be a part of the best coaching and top to bottom training regimen in the country.

PLEASE NOTE
Please bring your completed USAV Medical Form and SRVA Membership Form.
  No Refunds inside 96 hours.  Walk-ups are welcomed.    

WHAT TO BRING
At tryouts, you will need to bring a copy of the USAV Medical Form filled out.  You will also need to pre-register with the SRVA region, as outlined above.  SRVA REGISTRATION will open in mid-September.


"TRAIN FOR TRYOUTS" CLINICS
A5's "Train For Tryouts" workshops are designed to familiarize young athletes with club tryout drills and procedures. Coaches will conduct a "mock tryout" which will include evaluations throughout the workshop. This is a great way to reduce tryout nerves and increase confidence. For more information, see our Train for Tryouts page.

A5 CLUB SEASON INFORMATION MEETINGS
What is club volleyball, and just what does a season look like?  Aimed primarily at parents new to club volleyball or new to our club, A5 will offer a single club season information meeting this year on Thursday, September 24, 2020, at 6:30 p.m.  The meeting will be held at the A5 Sportsplex.  Due to COVID, livestream options via A5's Facebook page and Instagram page are also available, and a recording of the presentation will be uploaded to A5's YouTube channel after the meeting.  We urge returning A5 parents to use these online options.  We request that new families limit attendance to one parent per family.  All attendees must follow our facility safety and sanitary protocols, including temperature checks at the door, mandatory mask usage, and social distancing.  After the meeting, parents will be given a quick tour of our new 13-court facility.  For more information on this year's club information meeting, please download our flyer, and please share with friends.

Beach teams: A5 Beach will offer a single information meeting this year on Tuesday, September 29, 2020, at 8:00 p.m.  The meeting will be held at the A5 Sportsplex.  Due to COVID, livestream options via A5's Facebook page and Instagram page are also available, and a recording of the presentation will be uploaded to A5's YouTube channel after the meeting.  We urge returning A5 Beach parents to use these online options.  We request that new families limit attendance to one parent per family.  

Tryout Age Eligibility for 2020-2021

The formal wording of USAV's age definition can be a little intimidating.  To understand USA Volleyball's age definition more simply, just know that to try out and play for a specific age team, your athlete must still be that age at the end of the season, defined as June 30, 2021  (Exceptions are made for 17- and 18-year-old athletes in specific situations related to playing with their grade).  For example, if your athlete's birthday was in December 2006, then she is 13 years old during tryouts, but will turn 14 during the season, and will still be 14 at the end of the season on June 30, 2021.  Therefore she will try out as a 14-year-old.  With the club's permission, it's always "legal" to play for an older age team, but not for a younger team.  Please note that our website will always display your athlete's correct age eligibility next to the athlete's name in your parent profile.   For more information, including specific exceptions for boys and college-bound athletes, see the "2020-2021 USAV Age Definitions" document listed in the sidebar of this page.
