Tryout Related Information

Prior to the Team Selections, the club will host a series of Informational Meetings and Open Houses to assist families in navigating through the process of playing competitive volleyball and choosing the right club.  If you have any questions, please contact us!​

Informational Meeting, October 22 & 29

We will host our annual informational meetings on two Saturdays, October 22 & 29, 2022, at 6:00 PM at Western Sky Middle School 4095 N 144th Ave, Goodyear AZ, 85395. 

These meetings will be for any player and/or parent interested in the competitive programs and teams that we have to offer for the 2022-23 season.  We will be discussing information concerning the upcoming season, including National and Region teams, the 2022-23 tuition budget, and fees.  We’re excited about the new additions to our coaching staff and most coaches will be on hand for players and parents to meet and answer any questions concerning our club and/or club volleyball in general.​

Player Evaluations (Open House Period)

We will offer Open Houses where potential players can attend a practice setting to see what we’re all about and what to expect from our coaches.  Players and parents may talk with the Administrative Staff about what we have to offer, meet the coaches in their age group, and see the practice location of the club.​

2021-22 Open House Schedule

PLEASE NOTE:  The Arizona Region has a Quiet Period for all athletes that are currently playing on a high school volleyball team during the AIA Volleyball State Tournament.  This period will be from October 29-November 13, 2021.  We will honor the Arizona Region’s commitment to keeping student-athletes focused on their high school team during this time – our coaches will not be discussing the club season with any athlete still playing in the State Tournament.  If you have any questions regarding this policy or have any experience with our staff violating this policy, please contact Director Rosario Lopez immediately (6233414583).
