Tryout Process and Registration

Metro tryouts are NOT designed to eliminate players. ALL players trying out in the 15 and under age divisions will be offered a position on a team belonging to our Metro volleyball family. Many players in our 8 - 15's age category start as beginners, these players are in the early stages of their development and they progress significantly over the course of a Metro season. After a season with Metro these players are able to make a dramatic impact on their teams at their respective schools. 
Our tryouts consist of skill-based drills and team competition. Each individual athlete will be thoroughly evaluated during their 3-hour tryout. They will be placed (based on their skill level) on an appropriate team to ensure the optimal development of their volleyball skills, technique, and game strategy.
