TRYOUT REGISTRATION

Pre-registration is REQUIRED for tryouts. All players must be registered with USA Volleyball to participate in tryouts.  This can be a tryout membership for $10 or a full year membership for $52.  If the tryout membership is purchased, it can reduce the price of the full year membership when committing to a club.

**Membership fees are non-refundable. 

HOW TO REGISTER

First, you must register with Delta Region & USA Volleyball.  You will not be able to pick the club you wish to play for at this point.  This simply lets the region know you wish to play.  There is a registration fee for this...$29.50 for Delta membership and $22.50 for USAV that must be paid at the time of registration.

Second, you must pre-register to tryout at a particular club (or clubs).  The link to do this is below.  There is a $35 registration fee that must be paid at the time of registration. If paying the day of tryouts, the registration fee is $50.

Once tryouts are completed, the club will send an invitation to the parent's email inviting them to join the club.  If you get multiple offers from clubs, only accept the invitation from the club you wish to play for.  This will assign you to that club.
