- Player performance during tryouts (skill level, effort, interactions with coaches and other players, athleticism).
- Athletic potential and development.
- Attitude, Attitude, Attitude.
- Player evaluations from last season or school season.
- Past history of parental involvement or behavior.
We typically email roster spots with in 24 hours of the last tryout. Exceptions will be noted on the website and our Facebook page.

Grade Levels vs USA Volleyball Age Levels
Triple Cities feels that participating at your grade level allows more players to participate on teams with their peer group. This also places players on teams with similar "years" of experience, and maturity levels.
All players will be grouped by academic grad year for the current 2022/2023 school year. Players will be notified if they fall into an alternate (older) division based on USAV Restrictions.
The club director may allow individuals to attend an alternate age group at the second try out, this also governs players that may need to play with a grade level lower due to their USAV Age. Please notify Coach Baker prior to tryouts if you feel you should be placed on a team "older" or "younger" than your current grade level for any reason (date of birth or skill level).
