Monday, August 2 thru Thursday, August 5, 2021
Anyone who wishes to participate in our program during our 2021 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 11:30am-1:30pm 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.
Freshman Team: 12-14 players will be selected based on their potential to develop into Varsity-level 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 Thursday. 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.
Please make sure all players who wish to tryout complete the following procedure:
register electronically by filling out and submitting the "2021 Tryout Registration" form
fill out the ticket-to-play forms and be cleared by a doctor to participate in physical activity
Due to the way seasons were scheduled (or potentially scheduled) due to COVID, some of athletes may have valid physicals, however, they still need new paperwork for the incoming school year. This is regardless of the status of their physical.
If the athlete needs a new physical but isn’t due for one with their primary care physician, we suggest getting physicals through CVS or contacting Dr. Weiderrich (who is the Chiropractor here in Poway) that charges $25 for a physical. You may contact Dr. Weiderrich's office at 858-748-4343.
bring your ticket-to-play forms in to the Athletic Office (in the Admin building at the front of the school) and hand them to the athletic secretary, Mrs. Christina Fuentes. If all of your forms are filled-out correctly, Mrs. Fuentes will hand the player a "ticket-to-play" which the player needs to keep until she checks in at the first day of tryouts
the Athletic Office will be open starting Monday, July 26 (8am-noon) to hand out tickets-to-play before the August 2 start date of tryouts
the player will hand Coach Ambort their "ticket-to-play" during check-in on the first day of tryouts on August 2nd
NO PLAYERS MAY PARTICIPATE DURING TRYOUTS UNTIL THEY HAND THEIR TICKET-TO-PLAY TO COACH AMBORT
* Please bring a face mask with you to tryouts. Poway Unified still requires all staff and students to wear masks indoors on any K-12 campus.
