FAQ about Summer Tryouts

Why Summer Tryouts?

The Academy Volleyball Club has had tremendous feedback and growth from our tryouts being conducted in July over the early fall. 

  • Our student athletes will be able to focus on fall sports instead of the pressure that is growing to get in the gym earlier and earlier. Even though tryouts begin in July, teams will not return for practice until October. 
  • By solidifying our teams earlier, this helps our families by getting better hotels, better rates, more time to set up calendars and prepare for travel events.
  • It also helps our administrative team to better serve our families by having more time to enter rosters, early registration for tournaments, order uniform packages, set up billing and more! This eliminates the short timeframe between fall tryouts and the start of tournament season. 
Will coaches be assigned by summer tryouts?

Yes! We have a great coaching staff lined up that we will start announcing in early June. We will announce it on social media as well as our website. 

Will all regional and elite teams be 100% completed in the summer?

Our goal is to complete teams at the summer tryout.

If you are unable to attend the tryout be sure to contact boys director Andrew Fuller at to schedule an evaluation prior to tryouts, or attend our Elite ID Camp. 

If I tryout during the summer and don't make a team, can I come back in the fall to tryout again?

If you do not make a team in the summer, you can definitely come back in the fall and tryout again. If you choose to do this, you do not need to register again and pay for another tryout fee. We will reach out to those impacted by this after the summer tryout with more information. 

Trying out in the fall does not guarantee that you will make a team. Fall tryouts will have a very limited amount of spots available. The only full team that we will be filling in the fall for 13-18s will be our  Non-Travel teams. 

When do practices start?

Regardless of when you make a team (summer or fall), practices and training will start October 1st. 

With most tryouts in the summer, when do payments start?

We will be offering a variety of payment options to best fit your needs. By having summer tryouts, this will allow families more time to pay dues and fees. 

What if I can't attend the tryout dates? We will be out of town.

If you can’t attending the tryout dates for the summer, we encourage you to register for the the Boys Elite ID Camp the week prior. This camp is for high school boys and will be a great way for your athlete to be evaluated and meet the coaches. Athletes must be registered for this camp to be evaluated at this camp. 

If you can’t attending the Boys Elite ID Camp, please contact Andrew Fuller at to set up another time to be evaluated.
