When are Tryouts for Club Volleyball?
Spring State Teams - March 4, 2017
National/Regional Level-- Summer 2018 and Fall 2018
HVVC will utilize an Evaluation Period from July - October. During this Evaluation Period, the Phoenix Volleyball coaches will let you know where they see you fitting in when actual tryouts take place.
HVVC will hold an official tryout on the official tryout/signing date set for National and Regional teams in Late July/early August for each specific age group. During the Evaluation Period, HVVC will inform athletes/parents where they stand before the actual tryout weekend. This will eliminate any surprises leading up to the tryout weekend.

How to be Evaluated for a HVVC
The level and number of players per age group will be decided at tryouts. Once tryouts have ended, we will invite a number of athletes to join a specific team. An athletes’ spot on a team is established once the Offer and Acceptance Form has been signed and non-refundable deposit is paid. Additional payments will be due according to the teams payment schedule.
We recommend athletes attend all evaluation sessions for their age group. While we appreciate the need to be evaluated for other clubs, attending all of our evaluation clinics will give us the best opportunity to see each athlete. During our tryout process, the athletes will undergo several evaluations where each athlete is individually rated on her skill level in all areas, then evaluated by position. The players are then placed into teams so their overall court skills, attitude, and interaction with others players can be evaluated. Creating game-like situations is a priority throughout the tryouts.
The tryout process can be one of the most difficult things an athlete and parents will do all year long. It is also difficult on the coaches as well. There are many decisions and factors involved when choosing a team. We have tried to make this as comfortable as possible for all parties involved.
