Circle City Tryout Information and Procedures

Tryouts for the Circle City Boy's Volleyball Club will be the second weekend in September. Teams will be picked by September 20th and players will be contacted by their coaches as soon as possible. After players have been contacted and teams are set, team/age group meetings will be scheduled and practice dates will be finalized.

The tryout process for the boys will take place over two days. It is not required to be at both tryout dates but it is highly recommended. Please bring to tryouts all completed paperwork, a copy of your birth certificate, shirt with school and name on it, and patience.

Tryout, open gym, and parent meeting info is posted below.
