Frequent questions about tryouts?

I am going to be gone Nov. 10th, or 17th; can I tryout early? 

  • We will handle individual tryout conflicts on a case by case basis. If you have a conflict please contact Shawna Guffey as soon as possible @ NorthernAceVBA@gmail.com.
  • Due to AZ Region rules, early tryouts are not permitted for any reason. 


I am going to be gone Nov. 10th, or 17th; can I tryout after that date?

  • All prospective players will be required to sign the Player Commitment Form so we will know the status of each of our teams by the end of the decision period.
  • After tryouts we may or may not have space available on a team. If space is available in the club we will be happy to schedule you for a tryout.


What if I come late or leave early?

  • In order to protect the rights and interests of all players at the Northern Ace VBA tryouts we will make our decisions about the teams based on the evaluation of each player.
  • If you come late or leave early you may miss the chance to be seen completely. We will make decisions for teams based on evaluations


Can I tryout for a higher age level team?

  • Players must tryout in their age group.
  • If the administration sees a possible age change the option will first be discussed between coaches. This decision would be initiated by the administration and will consider it’s effect on all those involved both teams and the individual player.


What happens if I don’t make a team?

  • You are welcome to attend Northern Ace VBA Clinic’s as well as schedule group lessons with one of our coaches (Gym availability dependent).
  • Anyone that does not make a club team can request a refund of $25 from the Region in writing. Once it is confirmed that the player is not listed on any roster, the membership will be reduced to a Training Membership and a refund will be sent. This refund will most likely happen in February when registration is completed.


What to expect after tryouts?


Coaches will meet for 2-3 hours after tryouts to discuss each player and review evaluations.
You will receive an email 3-4 hours after the conclusion of tryouts to inform you of our decisions. Below is a list of the categories we will place athletes in.
