Tryout Information

Welcome to the 2019-20 Season at Rockford Volleyball Association!

Additional Information

Tryout payments are non-refundable.

Please plan to have your daughter at the entire tryout. This is a closed tryout between the athlete and coaches. Parents are not expected to remain onsite throughout the tryout. Girls must be at the tryout day in order to be considered for a team.

At tryouts, we will select athletes to become part of our club, but will not designate a specific team. Team placement will be solidified the first 2 weeks of practice. Rosters are fluid and, while rare, changes during the season may occur at the discretion of the coaching staff. 

If you choose to try out for the Select division, the placement on a Select team will be at the discretion of the Tryout Selection Committee and based on the requirement of having a full roster.  Placement onto a Select team is not guaranteed.

An email will be sent to the parent once acceptance into RVBA has been completed and with instructions on signing. 

Players may be put on a waiting list for a team if not initially selected. If a selected player does not accept the spot on the team, we will select another player from the waiting list at that time.
