Boys 8-18's have traditionally been held the last weekend of September. After discussion at the May Board Meeting, the tryout weekend has moved to the weekend following Labor Day. For the 2021-2022 Season, Boys Tryouts for the Gateway Region may begin after 5pm Friday September 10, 2021.
Please note there will be no early offer process for the 21-22 registration season.
Tryouts may start at 5pm on Friday. Commitment time is 7pm on Sunday of the Initial tryout weekend. Tryouts held after the initial tryout weekend may ask for a commitment at the time of the tryout.
Please form your teams within appropriate age and grade levels. Age waivers will be allowed for players too old for their grade to play with their peers. Realize age-waivered teams may not participate in any national qualifying divisions at National Bid/Qualifier events (exception U12, U13, U14). Be prepared to produce documentation (birth certificate and most recent school report card) to register a waivered player on a team roster.
Please be aware that once you have committed to play for a team, you are committed to that team for the season and you may not transfer to another team.
Any tryouts taking place prior to the start dates above are not sanctioned by the Gateway Region of USA Volleyball and are not for USAV teams.
The tryout listing below is updated periodically, as tryout sanctions are turned into Region Staff. Tryout edits and changes may only be made once - changes are noted in red. Tryout Sanction Forms should be emailed to Linus at firstname.lastname@example.org
As of June 1, 2021, USAV is still in the 2020-2021 season. USAV will officially release the Age Definition for the 2021-2022 season after this current season has completed. Gateway Region does not anticipate that the age definitions will change - so have extrapolated the age definition and chart for the 2021-2022 season for those planning ahead.
