How do I register for tryouts?



Where is the location of tryouts?

Tryouts will be held at Forks Township CC.

Call backs (if needed) will be held as well.

Please see our "facilities" tab for addresses.


Will there be a parent meeting at tryouts?

No.  There will be an informational meeting after an open gym session. 

Tryouts are a very busy time for our staff, parents, and players, thus, there will not be a meeting following any tryout sessions. Our staff will be focusing on evaluating players. Please email questions to


What should I bring to tryouts?

You should bring your KRVA membership card, your medical release form, your tryout fee, your volleyball equipment, and a water bottle. Upon checking in, we will provide you with a tryout tee shirt.


For which age group should I tryout?

Please see the KRVA age definition chart below.


Can I “play up” an age group?

We recommend that you play at your age level. Special circumstances might occur. Please communicate with our directors and your age group coach  about the desire to play out of your age level.


Can I play another sport and participate with AVA?

The simple answer is yes. Athletes must choose the team level of play which suits them best. All National level teams must be the first priority of each player. Athletes on these teams can play other sports as long as AVA is the number one priority.  If players do miss practice they will be missing important instruction from the coach which may affect playing time.


Can I watch my child tryout?

YES, parents are allowed and encouraged to watch tryouts.


Once I am selected to a team, when will I begin practices?

As an Academy, we will have a Welcome Party at the end of November, and team trainings will start the first week in December.


Where do teams practice?

We have several training locations in the Lehigh Valley.  Please check out our "facilities" tab.  At AVA, we have an open training policy, so any athlete can attend additional team trainings throughout the season.  We simply request that you ask the respective team coach 24hrs. in advance if you may attend their team training (for planning purposes).


Is there an additional cost if my team travels to Nationals?

Yes.  Additional fees will be assessed to those teams that qualify and attend Nationals.


How are travel arrangements coordinated?
