Tryout Process and Registration

Metro tryouts are designed to place players on the appropriate teams based on their skills demonstrated at tryouts. Tryouts are led by our highly experienced Master Coaches who understand that many players trying out in our 8 -14's age category might be new to volleyball and starting as beginners. For that reason, every player 8 -14's is a offered a position on one of our teams. Many of these players are in the early stages of their development and they progress significantly over the course of one Metro season.

Tryouts for the 15's -18's age categories are highly competitive and not every player may make a team. 

After just one season with Metro, players are able to make a dramatic impact on their teams at their respective school programs. 
Our tryouts consist of skill-based drills and team competition. Each individual athlete will be thoroughly evaluated during their 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.
