Westside Tryouts and Pre-Tryout Clinics

Westside 11's - 14's Tryouts

Tryouts for Sunshine's competitive 11's - 14's teams will be held on Saturday, October 7.  

All players are asked to register online for tryouts.  The $25 tryout fee will be collected at the door on the day of tryouts.  We are not taking online payment for tryouts or pre-tryout clinics.

Players pre-registered for tryouts still need to download, complete and bring to TRYOUTS:

  • The player information form.   Attach a photo and bring two copies of this form to tryouts.
  • One copy of the medical release form.

Tip: If you have Adobe Acrobat on your computer, you can easily complete these forms on your computer and print out copies.

Westside 11's - 14's Pre-Tryout Clinics

If you are planning to try out for a Sunshine 11's - 14's team, we encourage you to attend our pre-tryout clinics.  We want every player to have a chance to get to know our coaches and experience what it's like to play club volleyball, before tryouts and commitment day!

Pre-tryout clinics are very similar to a regular team practice.  Team-size groups will learn drills and work on age-appropriate skills and techniques with the coaches of next year's teams.

Skills workshops are similar to the hitting, defense and setting clinics offered during the summer.  Smaller groups will work on specific skills with expert coaches.  During our skills workshops for 11's and 12's, players will have a chance to try all the positions, as they rotate courts and work with different coaches on defense, hitting and setting.  Our 13's and 14's will choose one skill of their choosing to work on each class -- hitters can work on setting, setters can work on defense, you get the idea! Mix it up and try something new, or stay with your "normal" position, it's up to you. 

All players are asked to register online for for Sunshine's 11's-14's pre-tryout clinics.  The clinic fee will be collected at the door on the day of each clinic.  No payment is being accepted online when you register -- so there's no fee if you miss a clinic, and you will be able to edit your completed registration if your plans change.  

Registered players will be able to quickly check in and pay the fee when they arrive at the gym.  

Walk-ups will be accepted on a space-available basis only, and must fill out a medical release form and complete our contact information sheet (we will have available onsite).

What to bring to CLINICS:

  • $30 clinic fee (for two-hour clinics) or $25 (for 90-minute clinics).  Pay at door for all pre-tryout clinics, no online payments.

Not sure what age-group clinic you should attend?  

The USA Volleyball age division chart is on the main "Tryouts" page of our website.  Even easier, just figure out how old you be on August 31, 2018. Yes, that's next year on the last day of August.  You are eligible to play in that age division or an older age division for the 2017-2018 season.

Not quite ready to join a team?

Our Pee-Wee, Junior and Sunrise volleyball programs are for younger players and beginners who want to learn to play in a relaxed environment.  No tryouts are necessary to enroll in Pee-Wees, Juniors or Sunrise.  See the tab "Programs/For Beginners" to find out more.


 

Interested in classes for beginners?

 

Our beginning volleyball class for 8- to 12-year-olds is continuing on Sunday afternoons in Santa Monica through the end of September.   Navigate to http://www.sunshinevolleyball.org/page/show/3289018-westside-summer-clinics for information and registration.

 

Sunshine's popular Pee-Wee and Junior developmental program will start up again on Sunday, October 15.  Registration for 1st-5th grade (Pee-Wee) and 6th-8th grade (Junior) classes will be available in mid-September.  See the program page at http://www.sunshinevolleyball.org/page/show/220739-westside-pee-wee-s-and-juniors.
