At La Jolla Volleyball club tryouts, we not only test and assess players’ volleyball abilities and athleticism, we also offer feedback and instruction during our tryouts process. For the players: this helps them know what we are looking for, and also get a feel for LJV’s coaching styles and personalities. For the coaches: this helps the coaches assess a player’s coachability during the tryouts process and see how players learn and respond to feedback. We do our best to communicate what we are looking for at tryouts as well as team and player expectations. Come have fun, play hard, and show us your best effort!

Players in CIF playoffs: If you are on Varsity for your high school team and your team is still in CIF playoffs at the time of your tryouts, you are not allowed to actively participate in tryouts until your final high school match has concluded. However, you must still attend club tryouts at least the first day (or 2nd day with approval) to show your interest, commitment and to be considered for team placement. Please send an email to Barb to notify of your interest in trying out and to inform of upcoming games so you can be watched in playoff games if possible. Also, be sure to pre-register for tryouts so you are on our list and considered/eligible for team placement with LJV! If you wait until after tryouts are over to contact club(s), we will likely not have room for you.
All players must REGISTER ONLINE prior to participation.
