In order to tryout for the Xceleration Volleyball Club, you must first be a registered member of our governing body the Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA). This is specified by the NCVA for all its tryouts. You will not be allowed to register onsite for the NCVA, nor will you be given a tryout pass at any tryout to use at another tryout. You may choose to be a Full-Season Member ($70) or a Tryout Pass Member ($20). If you purchase a Tryout Pass Membership and then join a club later, you will be responsible for a Full-Season Membership at that time, which will be in addition to your Tryout Pass fee. Xceleration is recommending that you purchase a Full-Season Membership when obtaining an NCVA number.
Here are instructions that must be completed prior to your registering with Xceleration (online recommended) and attending our tryout.
YOU MUST COMPLETE ALL THREE STEPS!
STEP 1. Go to WWW.NCVA.COM.
a. Click on the "Register" tab on the main page.
b. Click "REGISTER AS A MEMBER".
c. Select "NEW MEMBER REGISTRATION" or "RENEWING MEMBER REGISTRATION" (If you played for any NCVA club last season, you are a returning member.)
d. Follow instructions to pay for your NCVA Membership.
e. Print the membership card. You must bring this membership card to all tryouts that you attend or will not be allowed to tryout. You must have a membership number to register online with Xceleration.
STEP 2. Make your tryout registration payment through our online STORE.
STEP 3. In addition to completing your NCVA registration and paying your tryout fee, there is an Xceleration REGISTRATION FORM that you must fill out online.
After you have completed your Xceleration Registration and your payment online through our STORE, please arrive at least 30 to 45 minutes before your designated tryout time. Please see an Xceleration representative at the check-in table to get your numbered tag to complete the registration process. Check-in opens at approximately 60 minutes before tryouts.
A Note About Tryouts:
In the past there has been word spread that many of our spots for our teams are given out prior to tryouts. We wanted to address this. The practice of offering spots prior to tryouts is not one that is confined to Xceleration. MANY clubs have this practice whether they choose to talk about it or not. At Xceleration, we have always chosen to be up front and open about it.
That being said, yes we do offer "some" spots on our Blue teams to players who have attended our clinics prior to tryouts. Our teams are by no means fully committed prior to tryouts and there are always spots open on all our Blue and White teams at tryouts. Everyone who attends an Xceleration tryout will be given a thorough and complete evaluation and a competitive opportunity to be offered a spot on our teams. If you have any concerns about this please talk to us directly at one of the Pre-Tryout Clinics.
Important Note to Parents/Guardians: There will be a mandatory Parents Meeting at the beginning of each tryout session to get important information about the club, including changes to our Travel Policy, Signing Night details, and the club season in general. At least one parent (or guardian) from each participant must attend. The Xceleration staff will also be available to answer any questions that you may have about the club.
