BOSS Team Selections

With the nature of our experienced coaching staff – BOSS Volleyball has extensive background evaluating athletes at all levels.    Each year during tryouts we will consider every athlete as a prospective member of BOSS Volleyball Club.   They will go through a battery of tests to evaluate their athleticism and volleyball skill, as well as team play.   In addition, the staff is continually evaluating athletes we see, whether in our club or another, on a high school team, at camps, even in other sports events. Each athlete must come to the tryouts ready to compete for a place on a team.

Teams are selected by the Directors and/or Coaching staff, who will review all available physical testing data, skills test results and observations on the team play during tryouts. Athletes are strongly encouraged to attend ALL try-out sessions for their age group. Athletes who miss sessions will have fewer opportunities to showcase their skills.   We will not entertain team requests pertaining to a players convenience, personal relationships, school affiliations, or other allegiances.

**(athletes with limiting physical or medical condition should talk to the Director prior to the start of the tryout period.)**

We base our player selections on many factors:

  • Current volleyball skill level (specifically the 6 basic skills: Passing, Setting Hitting, Blocking, Digging & Serving)
  • Physicality (Height, Jumping Ability, Quickness, etc..)
  • Athleticism (Coordination, Ability to take up new skills)
  • Passion for the game
  • Attitude
    • Work Ethic
    • Competitiveness
    • Coach-ability
    • Ability to interact with teammates
  • Positional needs for a specific team

Trying Out for Older Age Groups

If a player wishes to tryout for an age group older than their actual age group, the parents must receive permission from the BOSS Volleyball club Director.    Whenever a player tries out for two age groups, the Director will meet with the player and her parent(s) to discuss the player’s options.   The player will be required to attend the older age group’s tryout session additional to her own age groups tryout unless she has demonstrated exceptional ability and the Director has excused her from attending the younger age group tryout session.   Only the club Director or Assistant Director will have the authority to approve a player’s absence from her actual age group tryout.   If the player demonstrates a skill level which can benefit an upper level team, that player will have an option for a position with that upper age group.   If the player does not display a skill level to benefit the older age group, then the player will be on a team of their actual age group.

(14s player may perform extremely well in 14s, but lack the level of play to benefit a 16s team. It is much more beneficial for the player to be in a starting rotation, than sitting on the bench getting limited floor time.)
