Tryouts Information for the 2021-22 Season

TRYOUT REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE 2021-2022 SEASON!   

All those camps and clinics are great - but this is the real thing - playing on an A5 Gwinnett club team, wearing the A5 Gwinnett uniform, bonding with teammates, and experiencing real match play.  Over the course of a whole season, athletes get so much instruction and experience with match and tournament play, that playing on a club team is actually a great value considering the number of contact hours. There's just no substitute for the experience and FUN of a season of club volleyball! 

TRYOUT REGISTRATION 
The registration fee for tryouts is $45-$50 and must be paid in advance.  Walk-ups will be $50-$55.  This fee includes an A5 Gwinnett T-shirt.  Register Now!

After signing in as a registered user (or creating an account if you are a new user), you can add your dependent athlete to your profile and then register them for tryouts. Parents sign-in here.

NEW THIS YEAR 

USA Volleyball requires that each athlete register within their region - our region's governing body is the Southern Region Volleyball Association, or SRVA.  Prior to tryouts, you must register on the SRVA website and pay a $10.00 tryout registration fee that will turn into a full-year USAV membership once your athlete is placed on a team.  Registration on the SRVA/USAV website will not open until Sept 20th at the earliest.  The region ask that parents and families be patient with this process.  Should you have any questions in regards to this requirement please contact us. 

PLEASE NOTE
Please bring your completed USAV Medical Form and SRVA Membership Form.  No Refunds inside 96 hours.  Walk-ups are welcomed.    

WHAT TO BRING

At tryouts, you will need to bring a copy of the USAV Medical Form filled out.  You will also need to pre-register with the SRVA region, as outlined above.  SRVA REGISTRATION will open in mid-September.

"TRAIN FOR TRYOUTS" CLINICS
A5 Gwinnett's "Train For Tryouts" workshops are designed to familiarize young athletes with club tryout drills and procedures. Coaches will conduct a "mock tryout" which will include evaluations throughout the workshop. This is a great way to reduce tryout nerves and increase confidence. For more information, see our Train for Tryouts page.

INFORMATIONAL MEETINGS
Indoor teams: Each year prior to tryouts, our club holds several informational meetings for parents new to A5 Gwinnett or new to the idea of club volleyball.  Info session details for the 2021-2022 Club Season is on the Information Meetings page.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS
National - Travel across the country to compete.  Tournaments can include flights and multiple qualifiers.  Elite athletes who want to play a more competitive schedule
Regional - will travel within the Southern Region to compete.  Tournaments will mainly be two days.
 

Tryout Age Eligibility for 2021-2022

The formal wording of USAV's age definition can be a little intimidating.  To understand USA Volleyball's age definition more simply, just know that to try out and play for a specific age team, your athlete must still be that age at the end of the season, defined as June 30, 2022  (Exceptions are made for 17- and 18-year-old athletes in specific situations related to playing with their grade).  Please note that our website will always display your athlete's correct age eligibility next to the athlete's name in your parent profile.   For more information, including specific exceptions for boys and college-bound athletes, see the "2021-2022 USAV Age Definitions" document listed in the sidebar of this page.
