Beach High Performance Tryouts

About HP Tryouts

High Performance National Tryouts are held across the United States each year in the spring.

Tryouts are approximately four-hour events in which athletes complete physical testing and positional evaluations during a variety of drills and games along with other athletes within their FIVB age group. Athletes receives a tryout T-shirt included in their tryout registration.

Each tryout also includes a parent meeting, where a representative from High Performance will review the available programming for the current year available to athletes in each age group.

2020 HP Tryout Registration

Tryout registration opens Nov. 19, 2019.

  • Step 1: Create a High Performance registration account
  • Step 2: Log in and register
    • Registration is $90: Closes one week (seven days) prior to tryout date at 10 a.m. ET
    • Late registration is $115: Available starting one week (seven days) prior to tryout date until three days prior to tryout start date at 10 a.m. ET
    • Last chance registration is $140: Available starting 10 a.m. ET three days prior to tryout date until tryout starts (local time)

All tryouts are listed in local time. Check-in begins at the tryout start time. Tryout participation is dependent on registration in advance; registration is capped and space is limited for athletes who register late. If a tryout is filled to capacity, you may add your athlete to the waitlist and must wait to be notified to move up off the waitlist in order to register and participate in the tryout.

Information about summer program dates and locations can be found in the 2019 Beach Tryout Parent Handout.
