Volleyball Tryouts:  GIRLS and BOYS ages 10-18

Princeton Volleyball Club Tryouts are held in early-November, check back in September for exact details

Who are we and how does the club operate? 

Our club, the only based out of Mercer County, is a program intended to aid in the development of youth volleyball players in and around the area.  Started many years by Michael Adams, assistant coach for Princeton University Men’s DI team, the club is staffed by lots of excellent coaches with years of experience in playing and coaching.   We are comprised of multiple teams in all age groups, separated by gender/age/skill level as determined through a multi-day tryout. 

What to expect:

Once the teams are formed, practices start and run typically 2 days per week.  After about a month of practice the real fun begins…the games!  Different than high school volleyball which generally has a few matches each week, our program competes in an all-day tournament style occurring roughly 2 weekend days per month with top teams competing in multi day tournaments.   Each tournament runs for one full day and allows the teams to compete against teams of similar age/skill level from New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania (unless at one of the large multi day tournaments which will have teams from all over the USA)   Most tournaments take place within an hour and a half drive.  The season runs from early December through mid-May.  With every tournament averaging 8-10 matches, what better way to prepare for next years high school season?!?

Who is invited to try out? 

Tryouts are open to any and all high school girl’s and boy’s volleyball players who are willing and able to truly “commit” to the program.  This will enable players to make new friends from many surrounding schools as the team make-up does not focus on the players’ respective high school teams.

What type of commitment is expected? 

While we would love to be able to find a team for every interested player, limited court space and competent coaching resources make this a difficult task when trying to keep teams small enough to ensure ample playing time for all players.  With this in mind we ask that any players attempting to join a team, done through a tryout, be willing and able to truly commit to their chosen team (attempting to make most practices and scheduled tournaments).

Questions? 

The goal of our club is to provide an enjoyable educational experience for every player looking to play.  If you have any questions on the program we invite you to contact us at one of the numbers below.  Furthermore, we strongly urge you to speak to the parents of previous club players and get their honest feedback; we are confident you will like what they have to say!!
