 Girls Tryout Dates

and Commitment Dates

 

Beginning with the 2007/2008 season, the Southern California Volleyball Association will be implementing regulations on tryout dates and commitment dates.

For the 2018/2019 season, all junior girls clubs (now including Kern County) are eligible to host tryouts for the various age divisions on the following dates:        

  • Tryouts for 15 and older age divisions:
    • Open on August 4, 2018
    • August 6, 2018,  is the first day a player can sign a letter of commitment
    • August 6, 2018,  is the first day players may be sized for uniforms
  • Tryouts for 14 and under age divisions:
    • Open on October 6, 2018
    • October 8, 2018,  is the first day a player can sign a letter of commitment
    • October 8, 2018,  is the first day players may be sized for uniforms

Once the letter of commitment is signed and turned into one club, the player is then committed to that club. If a player does not follow the tryout procedures and commitment date, she may be suspended for the 2018/2019 season. 

SCVA Tryout Procedures, should be posted at all club tryouts.

SCVA Tryout Procedures for Las Vegas and San Diego Areas should also be posted at all tryouts.

Please note, the SCVA recognizes that Las Vegas and San Diego area high school players are bound to different CIF rules.  The SCVA asks that all Las Vegas and San Diego clubs and players abide by those rules, so as to not jeopardize the eligibility of girls during their high school season.  Thus the following tryout dates and commitment dates will be used for those clubs in the Las Vegas and San Diego areas:

  • Girls 14 and Under Divisions- tryout date of October 6, 2018, with a commitment date of October 10, 2018. The commitment day of October 10, 2018, is also the first day a player can be sized for uniforms.
  • Girls 15 and Under Division- tryout date of October 27, 2018, with a commitment date of October 30, 2018. The commitment day of October 30, 2018, is also the first day a player can be sized for uniforms.
  • Girls 18 thru 16 and Under Divisions- tryout date of November 7, 2018, with a commitment date of November 11, 2018. The commitment day of November 11, 2018, is also the first day a player can be sized for uniforms.

A Letter of Commitment should be signed by all participants. When a release is requested by an individual member, the SCVA honors the Letter of Commitment. If a letter of Commitment is not in place, and a player requests a release, the SCVA has the means to grant this release without the clubs’ approval if all other requirements (deadlines and non-frozen roster rules) are met.

After tryouts have been completed, and letter of commitments signed and submitted to clubs, all teams in the 14s and under divisions may not begin practices until November 1, 2018. After tryouts have been completed, and letter of commitments signed and submitted to clubs, all teams in the 15s and older divisions, for all High School aged players not involved in CIF or State championships, may not begin practices until November 26, 2018. An organized practice is defined as 5 or more rostered individuals participating in designed volleyball training. Team bonding get-togethers do not qualify as practices.
