  • Open Spot Tryouts: Ages 14 & Under will have an additional tryout day for Open Spots that we have on teams, the tryouts will be held on October 27th.  We will post on our webiste on October 24th teams that will have tryouts on October 27th.  Ages 15-18 wil have an additional tryout day for open spots that we have on teams.  The tryouts will be held November 10th.  We will post on our website on November 8th teams that will have tryouts on November 10th.  
You may attend one or both tryouts, however be aware that a player who attends both tryouts will have 4 hours of evaluation by our coaches vs. a player who attends one tryout and only is evaluated for 2 hours. 

Your daughter MUST tryout with her age group as defined by USAV Age Definition Chart.  If NAVC feels that your daughter has the skill and maturity to play on a age level above her current age the coaches and Club Director will make that determiniation.

Attending Tryouts:  We understand that the week of tryouts is jammed pack with clubs having tryouts all at the same time.   NAVC tryouts are a two day event, we encourage all players to attend both tryout sessions.  We offer our Club Prep & Evaluations,  Information Meetings so that you become familiar with NAVC.  You may attend one or both tryout sessions, however be aware that players who attend both tryouts are being evaluated by coaches for 4 hours, those that only attend one tryouts will only be in front of coaches for 2 hours.

How Teams Are Formed:  At NAVC we do not take into consideration when selecting players for teams what club they may be coming to us from.  Players who have been at NAVC do have an advantage because our coaches have worked with these players and we know their skill level, effort level, leadership and team work mind set as well as their mental toughness and their overall attitude as well as that of their parents.  With that being said the tryout process and any evaluation of players who came to our Club Prep Camps and other clinics or what our coaches see at school matches is purely unbiased and the teams are formed by our coaches and selection committee based on the players we believe give the team the best chance to perform at the highest level and win tournaments.
