CT Velocity Volleyball Club – Tryouts
For the 2013-14 season, we will be holding tryouts for Club Level teams at the 14s^, 15s, 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 Club - there is no "tryout" for 14s players playing on this team. We will have just an evaluation and opportunity for you to meet each other and your coach!
There is no tryout for the Youth Developmental Program. For questions about how teams are formed and the tournament level at which they compete, please see our FAQs Sheet.
If you would like to tryout for a team with CT Velocity Volleyball Club, the next step for you is to visit our Registration Page to get registered. After you are registered, check this page for the time of your tryout and come to CT College - we'll be waiting to meet you!
