2022 Fall Tryouts

Tuesday, August 2 thru Friday, August 5, 2022

Anyone who wishes to participate in our program during our 2022 season MUST attend during these scheduled tryout dates:

All Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors will tryout for JV and Varsity at 8:00am-11:00am all 4 days. During tryouts, there will be conditioning testing*, skills assessments, and evaluations regarding effort and attitude of all players trying out. 

 

*Click here to view the specifics on minimum requirements for the JV/Varsity conditioning testing.

JV Team: 12-16 players will be selected based on their potential to develop into Varsity-level players - including, but not limited to, skill proficiency, ability to be a team player, attitude, work ethic, and coachability.

 

Varsity Team: 12-16 players will be selected based on skill proficiency, volleyball IQ, versatility, ability to be a team player, attitude, work ethic, coachability, and team dynamics.

All incoming Freshman will have a separate tryout from 12:00pm-2:00pm all 4 days. Upon coach request, some players may be asked to come attend our returners’ tryouts if we would like to see them compete at a higher level.​ There is no conditioning testing at these Freshmen tryouts.

Freshman Team: 12-14 players will be selected based on their potential to develop into competitive volleyball players - including, but not limited to, athleticism, attitude, work ethic, and coachability.

 

If a player makes the program, she will be informed of which team she is on (either Freshmen, JV, or Varsity) when rosters are posted online at the end of the final tryout on Friday. Some players may be notified of which team they have made before the final day of tryouts and some players may be cut before the final day of tryouts.

 

All players who wish to tryout must complete the following steps:

  1. register specifically with our program electronically by filling out, and submitting, the "2022 Tryout Registration" form (found on this webpage)

  2. visit Poway High School's Athletic Clearance page to follow specific instructions on how to get cleared before the first day of tryouts

  3. print out/fill out the required Athletic Clearance forms and take them to get a physical

    • Physicals are usually done through a player's primary care physician, BUT if that cannot be done, other options can be through CVS or by contacting Dr. Weiderrich (who is a Chiropractor here in Poway) that charges $25 for a physical. You may contact Dr. Weiderrich's office at 858-748-4343.

  4. once cleared by a doctor to participate in any physical activity, turn-in the forms to Poway's Athletic Office and sign-up on AthleticClearance.com

  5. you will receive an email once your information and documents have been verified notifying you that the student-athlete has been cleared to participate in high school athletics​​ (you may also view the status by visiting and logging in to the AthleticClearance.com website)​​​

 

NO PLAYERS MAY PARTICIPATE DURING TRYOUTS UNLESS THEY HAVE BEEN ATHLETICALLY CLEARED THROUGH THE ABOVE PROCESS
