Dayton Juniors Tryouts
We would like to thank the players who chose to try out with our club this year. Well over 400 players participated in the process and we were able to support the formation of 22 teams. It was a very talented group of young ladies that worked extremely hard, making selections difficult. Our staff appreciates their efforts and we wish everyone the best for the upcoming volleyball season.
