Tryouts – Callbacks NONE NONE NONE *For this age group, there are no callbacks.  All players interested in playing will be placed on a team if possible.

  *Note: 12U Tryouts

We will make every attempt to place all 12U tryout participants on a team. Tryouts will determine which coach they will have. We will make as many eligible athletes as we can provide quality coaches. If a non divisible number of players attends tryouts for 12U teams, players will be cut based upon age (youngest first).

 *Note: 14 & Under Tryouts

For girls in the younger age groups (12’s, 13’s and 14’s) – Through experience, our directors and coaches have found that the best way to evaluate younger athletes’ abilities and potential is through an instructional tryout format.  We will be structuring tryouts to resemble a mini-camp, with coaching staff giving instruction, correction and evaluation over multiple days. We feel this will allow the players to relax and show us their true potential.  Please plan on attending all days of tryouts.

 If you intend on trying out for our 2018-2019 club volleyball season, please plan on attending a Parent/Player Information Meeting. Topics of discussion include our philosophy, tryouts, tentative tournament schedule, cost, coaching roster, fundraising, as well as a Q&A session.
Our Train for Tryout Events serve to prepare players for tryouts and the upcoming club season.  They are designed so that the players get to become familiar with the expectations and drills used in tryouts, meet and play under coaches and meet potential teammates. Both nights will differ in content.  Don’t miss out on your chance to come into tryouts competitive, confident, comfortable and prepared!

Thank you for considering attending club tryouts at Lanier. We are very excited about the upcoming club season!.  Please contact us if you have any additional questions.
The SRVA rules regarding tryouts are as follows: “It shall not be considered a violation of the tryout policy for a club, following the beginning of the tryout period and prior to commitment day, to provide a player/parent with a statement that the Club is offering the player a spot on a designated team or the player is an alternate for a spot on a designated team.”  NO club may withdraw an offer prior to Oct. 23th (14 & Under) or Nov. 14th (15 & Older) – regardless of the number of spots offered. (The player can reject the offer, but is not required to respond to the offer prior to the commitment day).

  • Explained – You may verbally commit to a team before 10/23 (or 11/14).  You should not financially commit to any team or club before 10/23 (or 11/14).  Any commitment, verbal or otherwise, made to a team or club before 10/23 (or 11/14) is not considered binding.  Once offered a position on a team, such offer may not be withdrawn prior to 10/23 (or 11/14).  Please understand that these are your rights as a club tryout participant.  No club should “bully” or “pressure” you into making a decision. If you feel a club is threatening to pull your offer with them before the 10/23 (or 11/14) commitment date, please contact SRVA President Ken Cain at 1-800-571-9801.
