What is the cost of tryouts?
Tryouts are free
What if my daughter is out of town on that day?
We will work out alternate arrangements.
My daughter’s never played volleyball before, is it possible that she could still make the team?
Yes, it’s likely. About half the girls trying out have never played on a real team before. We will train them at practice if they make the team. There are multiple levels of play beginners through club.
Will they wear those typical immodest volleyball shorts?
No! They won’t be allowed even at practice. The team uniform will consist of regular shorts – with approximately a 5 inch inseam.
My daughter has to miss one night a week, can she still make the team?
It is possible.
What kind of team is this anyway?
This is a Christian volleyball program that seeks to honor God above volleyball.
Who will you pick for the team?
We are looking for girls with the desire to learn and have fun.
Will these be competitive teams?
Yes, Varsity and JV are competitive. Junior High is developmental.
I would like my daughter to have playing time, how many girls will there be on each team?
Each team will have between 8-12 players so everyone will have playing time.
Who do you play?
Generally, the local private Christian schools and sometimes home school teams.
What is the policy on playing time?
We believe each player should get at least 25% playing time in each match unless they have missed practice. Of course the stronger players will play more on Varsity and JV because they are competitive teams.
Will we have to travel out of town?
There is only one spend the night out of town tournament for the Varsity only. The other tournaments and matches can be driven to in a day.
How old do you have to be to try out for this program?
At least 10 going into 5th grade.
What should I do if my daughter/daughters want to tryout?

Will you accept walk-ons at Tryouts?
Yes, but they may not get a team t-shirt in the size they prefer and will have to have their number added to the back.
