Individual clubs will determine their tryout schedule. Badger Region encourages all prospective athletes to directly contact each club they will be trying out for to determine how the tryout processes will work on a club-to-club basis.

“Previously registered player” means a player who played for the same club in 2016-2017. In other words, if you played for a club in the 2016-2017 season and that same club offers you a spot for the 2017-2018 season, you are considered a “previously registered player.” If another club that you did not player for offers you a spot, you may follow the “all other players” time frame.

Formal acceptance of an offer is determined by when the player selects their chosen club in Webpoint. Players should leave the club selection as “Undecided” until an offer has been made by the club and accepted by the player. Upon official commitment to a club that is registered with Badger Region/USA Volleyball, the athlete must remain with that club/team for the remainder of the Junior Volleyball season.

Notes: As always, players are encouraged to let clubs know of your intentions as soon as the decision has been made – a player does NOT need to wait until the deadline to accept or decline an offer. Individual clubs may choose to extend offer deadlines, at their discretion, or athletes may ask for this extension. Any extensions granted (or not) are the sole responsibility of Badger Region member clubs.

A club program who has given an offer of membership to a player may make one (1) club-initiated follow-up contact with that player between the time of the offer and the subsequent commitment date. A club-initiated contact shall be defined as a phone call, email, text or Facebook message by a representative of the club program making the offer.
