Online registration is required to attend tryouts, and we recommend that athletes attend both sessions for their age group. Please see our Tryout FAQs here.

You will need a 2020-2021 USA Volleyball membership** and a signed 2020-2021 USA Volleyball Medical Waiver to participate at tryouts. Please make sure you have these items BEFORE registering for tryouts, as you will be asked to upload these during registration.

Please read through this page from New England Region if you're having any issues with creating or renewing your membership, and please see some simple steps below:
