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 2016/2017 season, all junior girls clubs are eligible to host tryouts for the various age divisions on the following dates:
- Girls 14 and Under through 12 and Under Divisions - October 7, 2016
- Girls 18 and Under through 15 and Under Divisions (all high school aged players) - August 14, 2016
SCVA Tryout Procedures, should be posted at all club tryouts.
SCVA Tryout Procedures for Bakersfield, Las Vegas, San Diego Areas should also be posted at all tryouts.
For the 2016/2017 season, no junior player/parent/guardian may commit to a club prior to the following commitment dates: Wednesday, August 17th for 18 and under through 15 and under division, and Monday, October 10th for 14 and under through 12 and under divisions.. No deposits may be given during the tryout period. Once the letter of commitment issigned and turned into one club, the player is then committed to that club.
Please note, the SCVA recognizes that Bakersfield, Las Vegas, and San Diego area high school players are bound to different CIF rules. The SCVA asks that all Bakersfield, 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 Bakersfield, Las Vegas, and San Diego areas:
- Girls 14 and Under Divisions- tryout date of October 8, 2016 with a commitment date of October 12, 2016.
- Girls 15 and Under Division- tryout date of November 5, 2016 with a commitment date of November 9, 2016.
- Girls 18 and 16 and Under Divisions- tryout date of November 13, 2016 with a commitment date of November 17, 2016.
