All tryouts will be held at our practice facility located at 5720 S. 73rd Place in Fort Smith, AR.
The first day of tryouts you will need to bring the following:
The second day of tryouts players should bring their own drink
Players should be in appropriate attire including athletic shoes and knee pads for all tryout sessions.
Players are not to wear club volleyball jerseys from previous years. Players need to wear a white shirt (does not have to be solid white). They will be given a number to wear during tryouts.
Tryouts will consist of 2 sessions (3 sessions may be necessary depending on the number of players in an age group) where players will participate in a variety of skill related drills and competitive play scenarios.
These session usually last one and a half to two hours to properly evaluate all of the players.
If a player can only attend a portion of the tryouts due to a matter unrelated to an injury, then the player will be rated based on the time they are in attendance. However, the selection committee reserves the right to ask players to attend another age group’s tryout session if they feel it is necessary and there are additional sessions yet to take place.
If a player cannot attend either of the tryout sessions and they wish to be considered for team placement, the player must submit their reason for not attending in writing along with a copy of their membership card and medical release form, to a club board member, before the assigned start time for the player’s age group. At that point the board will determine the validity of the reason for missing and how to proceed with team placement for that particular player.
If a player cannot participate in the tryouts due to an injury, the coaches of that age group, the VP of Player Development, and the Club Director will collectively place the injured player on the team they deem would be appropriate, had that player been able to fully participate in the tryout sessions.
