Tryout Information

Welcome to the 2023-24 Rockford Volleyball Club Season!

Rockford Volleyball Tryouts are open to any players regardless of the club you have played for in the past. We encourage any player to come and see what we have to offer at tryouts!

  • Rockford Volleyball does not "pre-select teams". Each season is a new season and athletes must tryout to make a team again. We aim to make the best team with the athletes that come to try out and do not allow politics (what school you play for, what club team you were on last year, etc) to come into our decisions.
  • The club director will be on hand for all tryouts to answer any questions and discuss our club’s philosophy of working with the whole person. 
  • If a player is injured and cannot try out please contact the club director, as far in advance of tryouts as you can.

Additional Information

  • Tryout payments are non-refundable.

  • Please plan to have your athlete at the entire tryout. This is a closed tryout between the athlete and coaches. Parents are not allowed in the gym.

  • All athletes must be at the tryout day in order to be considered for a team.

  • An email will be sent to the parent once acceptance into RVA 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.
