2018-2019 Season Highlights

Circle City Tryout Information and Procedures

Tryouts for Circle City Volleyball Club begin in October each year and conclude in November. Teams will be picked by Thanksgiving 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 each age group will last between 3-5 dates. It is not required to be at all tryout dates but it is recommended.  Please bring to tryouts 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.

Pre-Tryout Open Gyms

Circle City Volleyball offers FREE open gyms before tryouts each year. This is a great way to get some extra reps before tryouts begin! You do not need to register or fill out any paperwork.

Pre-Tryout Evaluations

Interested in playing club at Circle City? This year we are 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!

15s - Sunday, November 3, 1-3pm

16s - Sunday, November 3, 3:30-5:30pm


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