Attending Tryouts:  We understand that the week of tryouts is jammed pack with clubs having tryouts all at the same time.  This is why we offer our Open Gyms, Information Meetings and Tryout Prep Clincs so that you become familiar with NAVC.  If you are attempting to make a 1's or 2's team at NAVC you need to attend both tryouts, if you do not you will only be evaluated for approximately 2 1/2 hours vs. a player who attended both tryouts and is being evaluated for 5 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 Open Gyms, Tryout Prep Clinics, Invitational Practices 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.

FAQ and INFORMATION MEETINGS


Join us for our NAVC Club Season Information Meetings, we will host four sessions, see below for dates, times, locations.

We're always asked whether players/families need to attend the Informational Meetings, and our answer is this:

1) For families/players who have never played for our club, it is an absolute necessity.  Which club to try out for is an important decision for any junior player, and--short of playing for the club in a previous year--there is no better way to understand the practices, policies and philosophy of our organization.

2)  If you're a returning family/player and haven't been to an info session, it's a good idea. 

3)  If you've played for an NAVC club before and hope to play for us again, you can use your own judgment.  We will discuss uniform changes, coaching changes, practice locations and practice format.

Commitment Day

14& U October 24th
15-18   November 8th

This season, NAVC will provide a online Commitment Night.  You will receive an email with two links, one to PaidUp (our online payment processing company) and a link to the Parent/Player Conduct Agreement.  You will need to sign two forms:
1.  Financial Agreement 
2.  Player/Parent Conduct Agreement
Upon completion of the Financial Agreement you will make your initial payment after you have set up an account on PaidUp.  

This process must be completed October 24th for the 14 & Under age group and November 8th for the 15-18 age group.  If you do not complete both forms and pay your initial fee on the date your spot will be given to another player.

SRVA Policy:
"It shall not be considered a violation of the tryout policy for a club, following the beginning of the tryout period and prior to commitment day, to provide a player/parent with a statement that the Club is offering the player a spot on a designated team or the player is an alternate for a spot on a designated team.  The club may not withdraw the offer prior to the established commitment day. (The player can reject the offer, but is not required to respond to the offer prior to the commitment day)."
