Tryouts

When are tryouts?

Our tryout registration period for the 2022-2023 season has ended. We look forward to updating you with next season’s tryout information and schedule once they are available.


Where are tryouts?

Cassel’s Sports Complex – 14000 Park Center Rd, Herndon, VA


What do I need to bring to tryouts?

Proof of USAV/CHRVA Membership

Water or Gatorade


What happens after tryouts?

One of 3 things will happen:


OFFERED– Players who make the team will receive an offer via the email they used to register for tryouts. Players have until 10PM the Tuesday after tryouts to accept an offer without risk of losing their spot on the team. After this deadline, the offer is no longer guaranteed and clubs may offer your spot to another player. You can accept an offer by simply responding to the email offer with a “Yes, I accept the offer.” Make sure you check your spam/junk folder!


ALTERNATE/HOLD – Since players may decline an offer at any time before the deadline, clubs may be waiting for a response from another player before transferring an offer to you. Clubs are not allowed to give out more offers than there are roster spots allowed. If you and an alternate or if the position is on hold because the Coach is still in the process of making their decisions, we will notify you via email. 


NOT OFFERED – Due to the large number of players who tryout each season, we are not able to individually respond and notify each player of their status. If you do not receive an email within 48 hours of tryouts, it most likely means the position has already been filled.

How are age groups determined?

Age group is determined by DOB and NOT by grade. Players in their age group may play up in age but not down (i.e., U14 eligible players playing up on a U16 team; U16 to U14 is not allowed).

Please refer to  USA Volleyball’s Age Classification to determine your age eligibility.


Where can I find a tournament schedule for this season?

Please visit our Club Team page here and locate the season schedule by club team.
