2017-2018 Metro tryouts

Posted September 11, 2017

Metro tryouts are NOT designed to eliminate players. ALL players will be offered a position on a team in our Metro volleyball family. Many players in our 12's - 15's  category start as beginners - players in the early stages of their development and progress significantly over the course of the Metro season making a dramatic impact on their teams in their respective schools.
The tryouts consist of skill-based drills, and team competition. Each individual athlete will be thoroughly evaluated. They will be placed (based on their skill level) on an appropriate team to assure the most efficient development of their volleyball skills, technique, and game strategies.

PLAYERS FROM ARKANSAS AND MISSISSIPPI WHO CANNOT ATTEND TRYOUTS DUE TO THEIR STATE ATHLETIC REGULATIONS PLEASE CONTACT COACH JITKA OKOLICANY AT 901-870-0837 OR EMAIL JITKA@MEMPHISVOLLEYBALL.COM
