2018 Club Tryouts

Cobb Atlanta is governed by Southern Regional Volleyball Association (SRVA). This year, SRVA has changed their policies to move from permitting clubs to hold their Commitment Night (the first time any club can require payment) within 10 days of the first day of tryouts to 5 days following the first day of tryouts.

 

For 14s & Under, the first day any SRVA club can hold tryouts is Saturday, October 13 making Commitment Night on Thursday, October 18. Clubs may have tryouts and Commitment Night any time after the dates listed, just not any time before. 

For 15s & Up, the first day we can hold tryouts is Sunday, November 4 (following GHSA State Finals on Saturday, November 3) with Commitment Night on or after Friday, November 9. 

 

We will have separate tryouts for Travel, ATL, and Premier Teams. Online registration for tryouts is preferred but we will accept in-person walk ups. The online registration will close 24-hours before tryouts. To register online, you must first create an user account on our website in addition to creating a Player Profile, if you have not done so already.

Cobb Atlanta Commitment Day/Night Schedule

Travel & ATL - 14s & Under - Commitment Night: Thursday, October 18

Premier - 14s & Under - Commitment Day: Sunday, October 21

Travel - 15s & Up - Commitment Night: Friday, November 9

ATL - 15s & Up - Commitment Day: Saturday, November 10

 

Per the SRVA rules, a player may either accept an offer, reject an offer, or say maybe to an offer. If a player does not reject an offer - meaning they say "yes" or "maybe" then the offer must be honored by the club until Commitment Night. The only way the club can give the position to the next player is if the offer is specifically rejected. This rule was written with the intent of allowing an athlete to choose among clubs by not allowing a club to force them to commit. If a club wants to take the chance and extend an offer before Commitment Night, they do so knowing that the only way they can take back the offer is with a clear "no" from the athlete.

TRAVEL TEAM TRYOUTS

Because of the new 5-day tryout window, we are having 1-night of tryouts for some age groups. For all travel team tryouts, we will announce the players who earned a spot on the 1's team at the end of the tryout. This year, we will only be offering a maximum of 3 teams at each age group for our travel teams. If we are having a callback tryout for your age group, you are expected to attend both nights of tryouts. We will make cuts after night 1 if there are more than 60 players at tryouts. If you are invited back to Callbacks, you have either earned a spot on the 2s or 3s team or you are guaranteed to be listed as an alternate.

Travel tryout prices are as follows:

$35 - online registration

$45 - in-person registration

Tryouts include a t-shirt

ATL TEAM TRYOUTS

ATL Teams only play tournaments within day-of driving distance and are a lower price point than our travel teams. To find out more about these teams – click here.  Since we will have a limited number of ATL teams, there will be a tryout process just like travel teams. ATL tryouts will take place after our travel team tryouts, and players are welcome to only tryout for an ATL team, or to tryout for a travel team and if a player isn’t placed on a travel, they can then attend ATL tryouts. 

 

***Please only register for ATL tryouts now if you DO NOT plan on trying out for a travel team.
