We recommend that anyone coming to trials has some indoor volleyball experience (1st team- 2 years of competitive play, 2nd team- some level of competitive play). If you aren't sure whether to trial or not, please come to a taster session and ask one of our coaching staff to watch you play. The trials are structured as follows: The first hour will end with a refinement process, whereby we will ask around 25-30 people to stay behind, and the rest to leave. This allows a highly competitive atmosphere with lots of gameplay in the second hour where prospective players are able to show us their talent, court awareness, and teamworking capability.
Please don't be offended if you aren't asked to stay behind- our trials are a tough process, and only a very small percentage get through. If you are unsuccessful at performance team trials, come to our recreational sessions, and you may be asked to join a development squad, or one of the teams. We provide a fantastic opportunity for progression with some of our rec players getting as far as the first team!
