Player/Team Selection Process

  • The day of tryouts, ClubRedVB will select the top players from each age group
    • If there is 1 team in an age group, we will take the top 10 players
    • If there are 2 teams in an age group, we will take the top 20 players
    • If there are 3 teams in an age group, we will take the top 30 players
  • After you have been selected to play for your age group, player and parent will do the following:
    • Sign letter of commitment
    • Pay non-refundable deposit
    • Turn in all Filled out all paperwork required (letter of commitment, USAV Membership Form, Medical Release Form, etc.)
    • Get fitted for uniforms and apparel
  • Players will attend and participate in the next two practices the week after tryouts where ClubRedVB coaches will be making more evaluations on each player in their age group
    • 15 teams – TBD
    • 16s team – TBD
    • After the two evaluation practices have been completed, ClubRedVB coaches will meet on the first Saturday following the two evaluation practices to select teams for their age groups: “Selection Saturday” 15-17s teams – Saturday November 25th
    • Teams will be announced via website roster the next day – Sunday November 20th
      • Financial agreements will be included in the email and that document is to be filled out and returned to ClubRedVB at the next practice
    • The first practice after teams have been announced, you will be practicing with your assigned team, teammates, and assigned coaches for the team you have been selected for
    • There will not be any discussion via email, person or text about team selection.
  • Reasons Behind Using This Process
    • One reason only – to do what is in the best interest for the players
      • Some girls have bad tryouts: Some girls have great tryouts
        • We can get more information on each player to make sure they are placed on the proper team
        • They will have a total of 6 hours to perform rather than 2
      • Allows coaches to make better decisions with bubble kids
        • For a 10-person roster, to make sure players #8-12 are evaluated more precisely and placed on the team that will best fit their needs
          • To avoid putting a kid(s) on a 1s team who shouldn’t have been placed there and would have been better off on the 2s team And vice versa
      • Allows coaches to not have to rush into decisions within a 2-hour time frame, which could lead to making a wrong decision
      • Allows coaches to evaluate other attributes rather than just overall volleyball skills
        • i.e. listening, attitude, effort, communication, coachable and how they work with others, etc.
      • Once your daughter is placed there will be no discussion about transferring to another team.
