CT Velocity Volleyball Club – 2016-2017 Try-outs
For the 2016-17 season, we will be holding tryouts for Club Level teams at the 16s, 17s and 18s age divisions and tryouts for Open Level teams at 16s, 17s and 18s age divisions.
17 Open - we will host a 17 Open Program team, which can compete either in the 18s division or at the 17 Open level - if the region sponsors 17 Open competition. Most 17 Open teams compete in the 18s divisions in New England.
14s/15s Club - There is no "tryout" for 14s or 15s players - the first few weeks of the season will be in a clinic format, then teams and coaches will be assigned. **Please note there is a cap of 50 players - spots will be given on a first come, first serve basis.
Developmental - There is no tryout for the Youth Developmental Program. Clinics start on Dec. 6. For information, click here.
