Tryouts

NOTE: TRYOUT TIMES MAY CHANGE. PLEASE FOLLOW THIS PAGE AND OUR INSTAGRAM PAGE. WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE THE SCHEDULE WORK AMONGST ALL CLUBS.

Powerwest holds one set of tryouts for each age group. If required, we will ask specific athletes back for a second tryout.

Due to the # of players trying out, we may have two tryouts, of which players are required to only attend one. Again, if required, we will ask specific athletes back to a follow-up tryout.

First Tryouts

Need to attend only one tryout (if multiple options listed). Welcome to attend both if you so choose.

Important Information for Parents and Athletes

The tryout process is an exciting and stressful time for our athletes. It is important for everyone to have a common understanding of the process.

There are a number of very important rules that all clubs must abide by in the process, and all parents and athletes should be aware of these rules. If you feel a club has breached these rules, please reach out to Volleyball BC to report the club and the infraction (youth@volleyballbc.org)

  1. OFFERS MADE BY TEAMS TO PLAYERS MUST REMAIN OPEN UNTIL 6PM on the 8TH DAY AFTER THE START OF THE TRYOUT PERIOD (the start of the tryout period are the dates of Powerwest’s tryouts above).
    • This means that clubs cannot ask you to make a decision on an offer prior to that deadline. They cannot rescind the offer if you choose to wait until the deadline to decide.
    • Offers may be accepted by the Athlete earlier than the deadline, but the offer cannot be rescinded if you choose to wait.
  2. Clubs cannot use any pressure tactics in discussing the offer. Language such as discussing “what is best for your daughter” or discussing the merits of any other club other than their own is not allowed.
  3. Powerwest believes that athletes should explore every option to play in their own age group prior playing in a younger age group (for athletes with late birthdays : Sept 1 onwards).
    • If there are no offers from clubs to play at the current age group, then playing in a younger age is a great option to build skill.
    • Clubs cannot pressure athletes to accept offers to play in a younger age group prior to allowing them to determine if they have an offer from another club in their own age group.
    • The timing of the tryout contract process is structured by Volleyball BC in such a way to ensure that your athlete will know if they are getting an offer from their own age group before the deadline for the younger age group is reached.

If you have any questions on this process or any specific behaviour, feel free to contact Volleyball BC at youth@volleyballbc.org.
