2014 USAV Beach Women’s HP Tryout Camps (athletes born 1989-95 only)
USAV Beach has announced the new USAV Beach Women’s High Performance Tryout Camps on Jan. 2-5 in Chula Vista, Calif., and Clearwater Beach, Fla. Open to all Junior (U21), Novice (U23) and University (U26) athletes born 1989-95, the USAV Beach Women’s High Performance Tryout Camp (WBHPTC) is designed to identify female athletes early in the year who will be invited to participate at our Transition Week Camp (May 12-18 in Hermosa Beach, Calif.) and ultimately our various Junior Beach National Team programs. The WBHPTC will use 2014 FIVB/USAV Beach High Performance Age-Group Classifications.
All athletes are required to try out for USA Junior Beach National Team programs on an annual basis regardless of participation in past programs or teams. This camp will count as an athlete’s 2014 tryout. For athletes who cannot make this camp, select tryouts in the regular schedule (March to May) will be open to this age group (schedule coming soon).
It is recommended that athletes try out as early as possible to get the maximum time to prepare should they be invited to Transition Week or another USA Junior Beach National Team program.
Tryout camps are open to U.S. citizens born between 1989 and 1995. Entry into USAV Beach High Performance (BHP) programs is based upon selection at one of several USAV Beach High Performance Tryouts. Participants must have a current USAV membership (available online or through your local region) and be U.S. citizens. A membership link will be sent to those who are not verified as current USAV members. Tryouts will be led by USA Volleyball Beach CAP certified coaches. Our coaches have experience at the highest level of the beach game.
Athletes will receive a written evaluation and do not need to sign up with a partner. Athletes may attend multiple tryouts, but are not required to do so. Registration is online only and closes Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. PST. Lodging is limited and on a space-available basis only. Walk-up and late registrations may be accepted on a space-available basis, plus $25 late entry fee.

For NCAA student-athletes: The Beach High Performance Tryouts are USAV-sanctioned Beach National Team tryouts in compliance with NCAA regulations. Your institution may be permitted to pay for your tryout and related travel. Refer questions to your institution’s compliance counselor who may call the NCAA membership services interpretation hotline with questions. NCAA athletes are required to inform their head coach that they are attending the tryouts in advance. If selected for a National Team or High Performance competition, NCAA athletes must receive required clearance from their university’s athletic department no fewer than 45 days prior to departure if the event conflicts with any academic or athletic dates. Athletes who are attending the tryouts for training purposes only and are unable to attend a championship event if selected, should make this known upon registration.
