USA Volleyball Club Tryouts 2020 - 2021

Safe Tryout with COVID-19

We are excited to be able to conduct tryouts for the new season! We have been given the guidance and instructions from USAV, OVR, and State of Ohio to conduct tryouts as safe as possible.

As excited as we are, we are still putting emphasis on safety. There will be procedures that we will be communicating to maximize the safety of everyone involved. However, as USAV has stated, “Until COVID-19 is either eradicated, a vaccine is developed, or a cure is found, there is no way to completely eliminate the risk of infection…”

The new procedures will follow USAV Guidelines and those set forth by the State of Ohio. The new procedures will include items such as:

  • Masks worn by AVC personnel.
  • Players must wear masks except for when they are on the court.
  • No Touch rules (no hugging, no handshakes, no high fives)
  • Social Distancing rules and no huddles or congregating
  • Frequent disinfection of balls and equipment
  • No parents or spectators allowed inside the gym or lounge area except for registration


Please complete the following steps to meet all tryout requirements:

What to Bring:


What to expect:

After checking in online, upon arriving, you will quickly stop at the registration desk so we can record you are there. We will start in the main gym and then break into smaller groups. Tryouts will last approximately 2-3 hours as the staff will ask you to run through a set of basic volleyball drills for passing, serving, hitting, and other skills. There will also be time for playing with other participants to demonstrate your abilities for teamwork, communication, mobility, and attitude.


Tryout Location:

AVC Volleyball Center
5725 Canal Rd., Suite B
Valley View, Ohio 44125


Athlete's accepted into the club will be notified within 1-2 days of the tryout. In general, most players will know what level of team they have made by the end of the tryout. If a player is invited to join, they must accept or decline by the deadline in the offer email or the offer will go to the next player on the waiting list.
