Tryout - FAQ

1.) Do I need to register for Day 1 and Day 2 of tryouts? NO, just Day 1 please. 

2.) If I get an offer after Day 1 of tryouts, do I need to come to Day 2 tryouts? NO (Only non-offered or NEW players come on Day 2).

3.) Do I need to wear my tryout shirt on Day 2. YES please.


Tryouts, like most everything else in our lives right now, will look a little bit different this year! In an effort to limit the number of participants in the gym at any given time, we'll be hosting tryouts in waves.

When registering, you'll be asked to choose a specific ONE HOUR time block to attend on the first day of tryouts.  We're limiting each time block to only 15 participants, so we'll have a great opportunity for all coaches in an age group to properly evaluate each athlete.  Each registration session is first-come-first serve.

Athletes will be permitted in the facility 30 minutes prior to the start of their tryout session to check-in and receive tryout t-shirts and then permitted to enter the gym 15 minutes prior to the start of their session to warm-up.  We encourage all athletes to arrive and be prepared to warm-up in the gym 15 minutes early.

It's important that you make every effort to sign-up for/attend a day one session, as many team selections will be made after that.  A second tryout session will follow on Monday or Tuesday for any athletes who have not yet been offered a position with the club as well as those who missed the first day.

We'll also be collecting the $25 tryout registration fee online to limit contact during tryouts.

Also, in efforts to keep proper distancing in our facility, parents will not be permitted in the building during tryouts this season.

What Age Level Am I?

All Dayton Juniors teams will be selected on a basis of "Grade Level".  You should attend the tryout that matches your Grade Level designation seen below.  Once the team is composed, the appropriate USAV skill level registration (National/American/Regional) will be chosen.  Should a team register national, all members of the team MUST meet additional birth date requirements.

Pre-Tryout Open Gym Schedule

Back by popular demand, Dayton Juniors will hold open gyms for all athletes who would like to attend prior to tryouts.  Open gyms are FREE for any athlete who played for Dayton Juniors last season ($3 per day for those who did not).

Members of our coaching staff will be there each night to organize play and to get to know you all.
