2017-2018 Pre-Tryout Clinics

FOCUS VBC will be offering pre-tryout clinics to help prepare players for tryouts and give players the opportunity to meet coaches for their age group.  During this evaluation period, coaches will have the opportunity to evaluate players and determine which team would be a great fit for each player.  Our coaching team works closely together to make sure that every player is placed properly to build the strongest teams possible.  So, if you are interested in being on one of our teams, we strongly encourage you to attend our clinics.  These clinics are $10 per player at the door or you can pay online HERE! .  However, so that we can properly prepare for each clinic, we ask that you register in advance.

2017-2018 Parent Information Meetings

Parent Information Meeting will be held 30 minutes before the end of each pre-tryout clinic held at Cliff Nelson Recreation Center.  These meetings are important because we will present our club philosophy, tryout process, and all financial information.  After the coaches finish the clinic, they will have the opportunity to meet and greet you as well.  If you are unable to attend, please find a copy of the Parent Information Handout Here!

2017-2018 Club Tryouts

For the 2017-2018 Club Volleyball Season, FOCUS VBC will host 2 sessions by age groups and 1 last look session if necessary.  The TENTATIVE dates, times, and locations are posted below.  Note: Times and locations may change but will be posted immediately.  If you know you cannot make a session in advance, please contact Yolanda Freeman at the 682-402-8861 or yolanda.freeman@focusvolleyballclub.com

 

What You Need To Know:


Each athlete must be accompanied by a parent/guardian and provide the following information:

  • Please complete a Try-out Registration Form
  • You will need to complete and bring the USAV Medical Release Form. For 18s, please bring the USAV Medical Release Form with Notary.
  • Copy of Player's Birth Certificate
  • $50 non-refundable tryout fee (cash, check, and credit card) due at check-in on the day of the tryout.   The fee covers all three tryout sessions.  
  • Proof of Registration with USA Volleyball is required to participate in tryouts.  Therefore, each athlete must register on North Texas Region website (NTR/USAV) and pay the USA Volleyball registration fee of $45.  If you have an existing account, click here to login and renew your registration.
  • If accepting an offer, the deposit will be due via cash, check, or credit card.  For any payment agreements, a valid credit card/debit card is needed as well.  


Since we will not have a copier or printer on site, please come prepared with copies of all requested information above.  You will need to bring copies because we will not be able to make copies for you.  Please allow 30 minutes for registration and paperwork. 


When Are Tryouts For Club Volleyball:


FOCUS VBC will have an Evaluation Period from August - September where we will host pre-tryout clinics.  During this period, players will have the opportunity to meet our coaches and the coaches will have the opportunity to view players' skills. Therefore, you are encouraged to attend as many clinics as possible during this period. 

After the Evaluation Period, FOCUS VBC will hold an official tryout on the official tryout/signing date set for each specific age group by the North Texas Region. To know which age group your player will tryout for, check the USA Volleyball Age Definitions.  We will offer three sessions for each age group where each athlete is individually rated on his or her skill level in all areas and evaluated by position.  The players are then placed into teams so their overall court skills, attitude, and interaction with others players can be evaluated as well. 

The number of teams per age group will be decided at tryouts. Once tryouts have ended, we will invite a number of athletes to join a specific team.  An athletes’ spot on a team is established once the NTR Offer and Acceptance Form has been signed by all parties.
