"Tryouts" are a process of observing and evaluating players in an effort to select players and create teams at Bristol CRUSH Volleyball Club. This process is the same process used by most high school teams in their player/team selection process, and the evaluation involves many coaches and club administrators, as well as many different criteria. Although the criteria used to select players and create teams is up to the individual coaches of the teams the selections are being made for, as well as the club administrators, and differ based on age group, they can include any or all of the following:
1) positional needs for a particular team
2) overall volleyball IQ/knowledge and current volleyball ability
4) overall athleticism/potential
5) positional skill and knowledge
***All times are subject to change*** (and are to be determined)
Team selections will be made in December.
Select team practices begin in December and the regional teams start the first weekend in January (after New Years).
**It is very important to attend both tryout sessions to ensure coaches are able to assess your abilities accurately.**
All tryouts will be held at the Bristol Boys and Girls Club, 255 West St. Bristol.
