What do I bring to tryouts?
All players need to bring a recent photo to attach to their tryout evaluation form and a deposit check for $500. The deposit check will not be cashed until a position has been accepted. The tryout evaluation form will be handed to you when you check-in. All players will also be given a tryout shirt with a number at check-in.
Players should also bring plenty of water, wear athletic shoes or volleyball shoes, knee pads, athletic shorts. No jewelry is allowed and hair should be pulled back.
Can't make tryouts?
Here are some other options:
July 14th - 5:30-7:00 pm
We cannot guarantee that spots will be available after the original tryouts dates. The cost for make-up tryouts is $50 if pre-registered and paid or $75 at the door.
Private tryouts are $100.
These must be set up individually. To schedule a time please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Private tryouts are not recommended unless you cannot make any of the other tryout dates.
Attending the regular tryouts the week of July 5th is highly suggested. We will be selecting teams the night of tryouts for all travel teams and all team ages 14 and up. Local teams ages 10-13 may be placed at a later date. Offers for all players who attend a pre-tryout will be sent at the same time as all other players in the age group.

The tryout process will consist of a player evaluation performed by multiple coaches and directors. Each player will have an evaluation form completed during tryouts. Players are evaluated on skill level, coach-ability, attitude, effort, position, athleticism, and experience. We encourage new players to attend our pre-tryout skills clinics in May and June as well as our summer camps to give us a chance to get to know them prior to tryouts. Information will be handed out at tryouts to take home. Directors will be available for questions immediately before the tryout begins and after tryouts conclude. They will not be able to meet during tryouts so they can evaluate players.
Once tryouts have concluded, coaches and directors meet to go over evaluations and collectively decide on team placement for all players. We also take into consideration parent and player's request for travel or non-travel. When team placement is finalized we will contact all parents either by phone or email within 24-48 hours. The position must be accepted promptly as your decision could effect others. Offers will start with the top team and move down through the other teams as offers are accepted or declined. Local teams in the 10s-14s age group may not be set until September. Spots will be offered but not a specific team. Travel teams will be set at tryouts.
Due to tryouts taking place each night and the number of players tryout out, we will not have the time for individual meetings the day after tryouts. We suggest asking questions prior to the tryout, during the tryout meeting, or via email/phone call.
This season we currently have 31 club teams and we expect to have approximately 33 club teams next season at the Magnolia/Woodlands location. We will have both travel and local teams in the 12s-16s age groups. We will only have local teams in the 11s age group and only travel teams in the 17s and 18s age groups. Our goal is to provide a place for all athletes and if a player is not offered we offer a variety of other options to keep them involved in the sport such as a developmental program, a jr. high league, red shirt players, and private lessons.
Coaches will be named by tryouts and tentatively placed with a team. Please keep in mind that we continue to hire coaches from July until the start of club season and not all teams will have a coach placed in July. Revolution is always looking to hire the most experienced coaches and we want to make sure all coaches are a good fit for the team level and age group.
If your daughter cannot attend tryouts there are several options for a make-up. We will offer tryouts through our pre-tryout clinics prior to tryouts and will have a make-up tryout in late July and August. All players are highly suggested to make the actual tryout date for accurate team placement. Players who tryout at the pre-tryout clinics will not be placed on a team until after their age group tryout in July.

Thank you for choosing Revolution!
