USA Volleyball Registration will be a Two Step Process Again in 2014-2015.
Step 1 will be to purchase a $5 Junior Tryout Registration Prior to Participating in Tryouts for a Club
Step 2 will be to upgrade to the full junior membership after you have signed a contract to play for a club team.
AFTER YOU HAVE REGISTERED WITH USA VOLLEYBALL, YOU WILL STILL HAVE TO REGISTER WITH THE CLUBS YOU INTEND TO TRY OUT FOR
-Players will only need to register with the Region one time and may attend as many tryouts as they would like.
-The $5 tryout registration is cost will be credited towards the player’s full club membership cost of $72 when they are selected to a team.
-The $5 registration cost is separate from the tryout fee (if any) charged by the club for participation in their tryout.
-The competitiveness of the clubs and teams varies significantly from club to club. Some clubs have highly competitive tryouts where a very large number of players compete for a limited number of positions on a team. Other clubs have a “take all players” policy where they try to form a team with all the players that turn out.

National vs. Regional Teams
The coach and/or the club director determine the tournament and practice schedule for each team. The most competitive teams often compete at “national” tournaments where they compete with some of the best club teams in the nation or the Western United States. There are additional cost considerations for a player to participate at this level due to travelling and other accommodations. The level of commitment for a national team is typically higher as well. Regional teams typically participate in tournaments that are in the Pacific Northwest and are easy to travel to by car.
