CT Velocity Volleyball Club – Try-outs
For the 2014-15 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.

Players may try-out and play at their age-level or higher, but may not tryout or play below their age level. If a player is undecided between two age groups or two teams, they may try-out for both teams. (E.g., a player may tryout for a 16U team and an 17U team, or a 16U Club and 16U Open team).
