Parents and Players:
The USAV of Florida tryout rules:.
Tryouts can be held at anytime! Please keep in mind..... No USAV athlete can commit to a club until they sign the OFFICIAL USAV commitment form on or after Oct 1st, 2018
What does this mean:
No player is guaranteed a certain roster spot or even club membership until the player is allowed to sign the USAV official Florida commitment form (can only be signed on or after Oct 1st 2018). The Florida USAV will NOT get involved with any personal business/legal agreements made between a club and a player.
Please take your time when choosing a club. Tryout for more than a single club before making an informed decision.
USAV CLUB RULES FOR THE 2018/2019 Season…

2. Athletes may officially select and commit to a USAV club in Florida beginning on Oct 1st of each year.

The form will reside with the club and must be made available within 3 business days upon request by the Florida Region.

Once an athlete selects a club in WebPoint during the Indoor Club Season, they will only be able to transfer to another USAV club after obtaining a written release from the club they wish to depart.
