Club Team Tryouts
Athletes interested in trying out for our Club teams this season are encouraged to take part in our Get Prepped for Rep Training and Early Identification clnics.
Open tryouts for our 2021/2022 club teams will begin approximately one week after the start of the new school year. A tryout schedule will be posted in August. However, athletes taking part in our summer training sessions are eligible to receive ‘early offers’ prior to the official tryout period (see offer window section below). All athletes must register online for tryouts and pay the tryout fee.
While some clubs may start tryouts earlier, offers may not be made until the dates listed in the Offer Window section below. Some of our teams may re-sign athletes from the previous season, or make early offers to athletes who participate in our Get Prepped for Rep sessions. A list of signed athletes will be posted on the Ontario Volleyball website along with information about open spots with specific teams.
It’s important to us that families understand their commitment when choosing to play for our club. We ask you to view the Frequently Asked Questions section on our Club (Rep) Volleyball page for important information about playing for Durham Rebels. This is where you will also find information on how tryouts operate.
As a competitive club, it is our goal to establish teams with the highest calibre of athletes, but coaches are looking for more than just skill. Team dynamics are extremely important so remember to be an encouraging and positive athlete who is coachable and brings value to the team beyond your court skills. Here’s some helpful tips:
The OVA has established a timeline of when Clubs can make offers to tryout athletes. A re-signed athlete is an athlete who played with the same club the previous season, while ‘early offers’ can be made to athletes who took part in training with the club throughout the summer. The offer window below lists dates offers may be made to athletes.
