Parent Information Meetings

Looking for more information about Circle City Volleyball or just club volleyball in general? Attend one of our pre-tryout parent meetings. Ran by our club/assistant club directors, these meetings are a great way to get answers for any questions you may have. It is also a great chance to visit our facility and get a feel for what we have to offer!


Sunday, October 4th

12:00pm & 2:30pm


All meetings will be held at Capitol Sports Center in the conference room between courts 1 and 4.

Pre-Tryout Evaluations

Interested in playing club at Circle City? This will be our second year hosting pre-tryout evaluations for our 15s and 16s age groups. We are fortunate to have many players interested in playing for Circle City each year which is intimidating for some. These early sessions will alleviate the stress or fear of not making a team. NO specific team placement will take place, but this will help determine if Circle is the place for you. All are welcome and the sessions are completely free!



You must pre-register to attend. Email Lance Keating at to secure your spot.
