Club Directors the tryout dates for the 2019-2020 season have been confirmed. Also there is no change to the tryout policy that we put in place last year.
JUNIOR TRYOUT/COMMITMENT POLICY: SRVA’s intent is to allow players to tryout with multiple clubs. A 5-day tryout period will not begin earlier than on the second Saturday in October for age groups 14 and below. A 5-day tryout period for ages 15 through 18 will not begin prior to the first day after the completion of each state’s high school championship. A tryout fee no greater than $75 may be collected during these periods.
No player may be allowed to make a greater financial commitment to a club until:
Participants should be careful not to violate any high school or collegiate rules that may apply.
It shall not be considered a violation of the tryout policy for a club, following the beginning of the tryout period and prior to the commitment day, to provide a player/parent with a statement that the Club is offering the player a spot on a designated team, or the player is an alternate for a spot on a designated team. The Club may not withdraw the offer prior to the established commitment day unless the offer is rejected by the player/parent.
All club websites must prominently post the SRVA tryout policy or a link to it entitled “Link to the SRVA Tryout Policy” where their tryout information is located.
All clubs will also be required to acknowledge the SRVA rules/policies as defined in this Handbook and certify that the SRVA Tryout/Commitment policies were followed as a part of the recruiting/forming the teams being registered BEFORE any team registration can be processed further. Violations of the Tryout/Commitment policies may be subject the club and possibly any players involved in the violation to suspension from SRVA along with a non-refundable revocation of all team (possibly club) fees submitted.
For the age groups 14 and under: Oct 12th With the earliest commitment date October 17th
