Who can Tryout?

Forza1 will field teams of all ages and levels. We will accept players as young as 7 (2nd grade) and as old as 18 (12th grade). We will accept players who are beginners as well as intermediate, advanced and elite. Our goal at Forza1 will be to provide players of all ages and levels the opportunity to participate in a way that suits their experience, helps them develop as a player and person, and meets their commitment level. Players from everywhere are welcome and new players are welcome too!

What to Tryout for?

Forza1 will offer 3 different CLUB levels of participation:

Under Armour/National - this level is meant for experienced elite players and/or those who want to compete at the highest level locally and nationally. Intermediate and advanced level athletes often play "National" as well if they are making a bigger commitment and are looking to become college prospects. What separates Under Armour from the others levels is that these teams travel to Junior National qualifiers, JVA Tournaments and a large National Championship Tournament at the end of the season.
Practices = 3x per week + strength & conditioning
Tournaments = approx 10 per season
Season lasts November - June

               *Note: Under Armour and National players will tryout on the
                 same day and we will place your daughter according to her
                 skill level and evaluation at tryouts.

Elite (regional) - this level is meant for intermediate to elite players who are looking to compete at a high level regionally (Southern California) and build their technical skills and understanding of the game. Elite is very similar to "National" in that they compete in the same league (SCVA). The main difference is that these teams do not attend qualifiers and their National end of the year tournament is in Anaheim, CA and hosted by the SCVA as the Soiree. 
Practices = 2x per week
Tournaments = approx 9 per season
Season Lasts November - June

Local - this level is meant for beginning to advanced players. We will have a range of local teams in each age group to accommodate the varying levels of skill and experience. Local teams will play in the 12s, 14s or 16/18s divisions and play in either Open or Club. At the end of the year we also host our very own Forza One Performance Cup! 
Practices = 2x per week
Tournaments = approx 7 per season
Season lasts November through May

                   *Note: Local tryouts are separate from the National/Regional tryout. If you
                    know you want to play local this is the tryout for you! If you're not sure,
                    contact our office and we will steer you in the right direction.


EAST Location - Girls High School ages
Read this page for details and register for East Tryout HERE.


On-line Registration

When you are ready to register, click the NEW link above and look for the age group and the level you want to tryout for and then click "register". Please note, your age is determined by the age you will be through the 2019-2020 season. For example you have to be the age you are trying out for or younger until August 31, 2020. So if you are 13 right now but you turn 14 before August 31, 2020, you have to play 14s. It doesn't matter what grade you are in. The idea is for your age and grade to match your division but that is not always the case. If you're not sure, contact our office.

Tryout Format

Every level/age has 2-3 tryouts. We can offer players spots or create teams at any time during the tryout. It is mandatory and important to be at every tryout so you are present when we offer spots and create teams. If you have any questions please read the tryout format details below the registration link at the bottom of this page. If you have further questions contact Dana or Christina. Thank you!

TRYOUTS - IMPORTANT

We will have 1 Tryout per Day for each age/level. It is important that you attend the set tryout time for your age/level since we can create teams and offer positions at ANY point during the tryout. We want everyone to have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and be evaluated correctly so it is MANDATORY to attend all tryouts for your age/level for each day. If for some reason you cannot attend we ask that you contact Dana as soon as possible for assistance.

What is the Tryout Process?

Tryouts are new to some families so here is an explanation of how they work!

Step 1:  Register on-line for the tryout that matches your age and level using the "registration" links below. On-line registration is mandatory.
Step 2:  Save all the dates and times for your tryout. All levels have multiple tryouts and attendance at all tryouts for your level are mandatory. If for some reason you have to miss a tryout please contact our office.
Step 3:  Prepare for tryouts by practicing, going to open gyms or clinics, playing pepper, doing privates, whatever you can!
Step 4:  Attend the tryouts you signed up for with at least 1 parent.
Step 5:  At tryouts we will have a mandatory parent meeting where we hand out information about the club season, pricing and structure.
Step 6:  Go through the tryout giving your best and the coaches will evaluate you and the other participants***

Step 7:  At some point during the tryout you will be offered a spot* on a team and asked to accept it (*please note that only at the local level does everyone make a team. Cuts can be made from the National or Regional level but those players may still choose to play local).
Step 8:  If you accept the spot it will be reserved for you until the paperwork process is complete.
Step 9:  Complete the paperwork and payment procedures and secure your position on the team.
Step 10:  The club will communicate next steps (when season begins, your practice schedule, meeting dates and so forth).
Step 11:  Practices begin approximately November 1, 2019 for 14 and under players and approximately December 1, 2019 for 15 and older players.
Step 12: Return all paperwork to Forza1 on Commitment Day. Make sure to do all your uniform sizing on this date as well! 


*** the tryout process is both exhilarating and challenging. Everyone wants to make the best team and we understand that. Our job as evaluators is to find the best fit for each player and to build well-balanced teams that will succeed and give each player the opportunity to thrive. Some keys to remember:

1. Sometimes a players placement is really obvious and sometimes it is not. This means that you could be offered a spot on the first day of the tryout or on the last day. It all depends on the tryout and the pace at which the teams are formed and put together.

2. We evaluate all players equally. We will do testing in the beginning of the tryout to get a general sense of athleticism, speed and skill level. Then we will break out onto courts and do position and team play evaluations. During this period players may start on the top court or the bottom court, they may move to all different courts or they may stay on the same court.

3. There are stationary evaluators on every court and there are moving evaluators on multiple courts and they all work together to properly place the players and build good teams.

4. Depending on your height, skill set, potential, athleticism, and most importantly your position (and depth of players trying out in your position) you will be placed accordingly.

5. Volleyball is a skill specific sport so creating a well-balanced team means you need approximately: 2 setters, 3 outsides, 3 middles, 2 rightsides, and 2 liberos for a total of 12 players. Some teams will carry this exactly and some will carry something close to this so the # of players on the roster may vary from 9-13.

6. Our philosophy on number of players is simple - do what makes the most sense. If there are 12 girls around the same skill level that create a well-balanced team then the team will have 12. If there are 11 or 10 girls that make the best team then we will put that number of girls on the team. There are advantages to every number because some provide more security and depth, or competitiveness and different practice opportunities. The most important thing is that its a well-balanced team position and skill wise.

7. Players may be added to a team roster for many reasons. Outside of their skill set they may be added for their work ethic, their attitude, their competitiveness, their potential, their height, their speed, or even a specialty like "a really good server" or "a big blocker". The reverse of this is also true so make sure to put your best on the court. In general, there is a lot at a tryout for the Coaches to consider, so this is why we suggest just giving your VERY best and letting us see what you can do on the court!
