The Tryout Policy was implemented to reduce the stress on all involved. Parents and players are encouraged to do your research in advance on the clubs you plan to tryout with and narrow your decision down to 2-3 clubs. We recommend you also read the How to Compare a Club resource on the PVA website.
“Open Tryout Period” is defined as the block of days that players may tryout with no expectations of having to make a commitment to a team/club, nor can a team/club require a commitment from a player.
During this period:
Clubs within a 60 mile radius are requested to work with each other to avoid head to head conflicts on tryouts within the same age group. Players who find conflicts should contact the respective club directors for more information/alternative tryout options.
Any player who desires to try out for multiple clubs is required to notify each club by completing and remitting the PVA Multi Club Tryout Disclosure document PRIOR to attending tryouts.
Clubs no longer pay the USAV Membership fee. This was changed prior to the 2017-18 season. Coaches and players must register and PAY for their own USAV membership prior to participating in any tryout or practice. If you do not make a team or decide not to participate, simply email the region (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will refund your $50 fee in full. This request must be made within 2 weeks of your last tryout.
If you are trying out with both USAV club and SAVL club, we still require you to pay for the membership before tryouts with the USAV club. Should you decide to participate with a SAVL club and that club doesn’t require you to have a USAV membership, you can request a refund for your USAV membership by emailing email@example.com with your full name and date of birth.
Refund request must be made within two weeks of your last tryout.
What if I want to tryout for both 14u and under and 15U and above?
Clubs who have players who are trying out in both 14 & under and 15 & above age divisions are not required to hold a spot in the younger age division if the 15> older age division tryout dates is past the 14< signing date.
What constitutes a player commitment to a club?
A player & parent are considered committed to a club once they sign region commitment agreement, a club player-parent contract, or pay a initial fee payment (not tryout fee). Once one of the above is done, then the player is committed to that club for the season, unless the club releases them. Click here for entire rule.
