The time has finally arrived! Tryouts for Pirate Volleyball will begin promptly at 4pm on 8/14.
Tryouts will be 8/14 - 8/18 from 4pm - 7:15pm each day. Freshmen and Sophomores should plan to attend 4pm - 5:30pm with Juniors and Seniors going from 5:30pm - 7:15pm. Tryout times for your athlete may change throughout the week so please keep the entire tryout time (4pm-7:15pm) open on your schedule.

It will be a closed tryout, no parents or siblings will be allowed in the gym at any point during the tryout time. Please come to tryouts having completed all of the necessary paperwork and in the appropriate athletic attire in order to participate in the tryout. I can’t stress this enough - you may not participate without having all of required paperwork turned in, please triple check your ‘register my athlete’!

Varsity tryouts are Monday - Wednesday with the team being made by Wednesday. Practice will begin on Thursday and we are scheduled for a tournament Saturday 8/19. All players will need to be in attendance, no exceptions.  
Junior Varsity and Frosh will tryout Monday - Friday with the teams potentially made by Thursday and practicing on Friday.

In order to be considered for any team each athlete must attend a minimum of two of the tryout days! Missing any part of tryouts may have an impact on what team your athlete may make or if they will make a team as it will reduce the amount of time for them to be evaluated. I recommend all athletes plan to attend as much of the tryout week as possible.

In addition please familiarize yourself with the tournament schedule for each team and the expected commitment in order to assess which team your athlete should be trying out for. Coaches will assume your athlete is trying out for all levels unless previously designated upon check in. Practices are mandatory and all players must attend all tournaments - there will be no makeup opportunities for missed practices. More information on the specifics of the season will be provided at the program meeting once teams have been finalized.

Looking forward to meeting everyone at tryouts! Goodluck & Go Pirates!

Thank you,
