2015-2016 USAV/CHRVA Tryout Information

Dear CHRVA member,
We have already started the Open Tryout Period for boys' club programs, and girls' tryouts begin in less than a month. On the CHRVA website, you can find a spreadsheet containing the dates, times, and locations of currently sanctioned tryouts. From, click on Juniors on the banner and then Club Tryouts on the left side menu.
It is important that players and their families understand the rules regarding offers and commitments to play for a given club. Attached you will find the Recruiting Policy that is also on the CHRVA website. Please take the time to review it.
Some pertinent facts:
  • You must have a current USAV/CHRVA membership to try out. There is the option of a 'One Event' membership that can be used for tryouts. Please choose Undecided for your club; you will be able to upgrade to a full membership and designate your club after you make a team.
  • Tryouts cannot be held prior to the start of the Open Tryout Period if a team wants to participate in any USAV sanctioned tournament.
    • The Open Tryout Period for boys is October 3rd - 19th
    • The Open Tryout Period for girls' age groups 10, 11, 12 and 13 is November 4th - 10th
    • The Open Tryout Period for girls' age groups 14 and higher is November 11th - 17th.
  • All dates begin at 12:01 a.m. So that there is no confusion, Tuesday, 12:01 a.m. is one minute after midnight, Monday night.
  • Any offer extended to a player may not be rescinded until the end of the Open Tryout Period. A player can accept or reject an offer before the period ends, but a club or team cannot require a commitment prior to the end of the Open Tryout Period.
  • Once the Open Tryout Period ends, an offer can still be extended, but may be rescinded if not accepted immediately.
  • An offer must be dated and in writing, via verifiable electronic (e.g. email) or non-electronic means.
Good luck to all of our players
