WHAT TO EXPECT – TRYOUTS & REGISTRATION

Keep in mind there may be girls from different areas/schools and age levels that tryout with you. You never know of the talent that shows up and what team you will be placed on. Evaluations will be done by program coaches and independent evaluators who will be assisting the coaches with team selections. Do not make any assumptions and have a plan in place if you are selected for a team you did not expect to make. 

Our coaches and evaluators will be grouping players by their ability to be coached, attitude, athletic/physical ability, communication, position, work ethic, teamwork, volleyball ability, emotional/mental ability, and sometimes athletic potential. 

Who can tryout?

17’s Team – Any girl who currently is in 7th through 11th Grade in school

15/16’s Team – Any girl who currently is in 7th through 10th Grade in school

14’s Team – Any girl who currently is in 7th or 8th Grade 

Team Sizes

The Hutchinson JO Board desires to have team sizes in the range of 9 to 11 players. Cuts may occur if there are over 11 players but less than 18 players. The JO Board reserves the right to form a team with less than 9 players or with more than 11 players when they feel it is in the best interest of the program. More than one team may be formed per age level if tryout numbers allow (1’s team, 2’s team, etc.). 

The evaluators realize you may be nervous – please relax, have fun and try your best!  Good Luck!!

The Process- 17’s and 15/16’s Teams

  1. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. and check-ins begin at 11:40 a.m. at the Hutchinson Rec Center. There are 2 lines – one for pre-registered athletes (done online - $20), one for athletes paying at the time ($25). Tryout fees are nonrefundable.

  6. Players will be ranked from 1 to 100 (or however many try out)
  7. Players will be assigned a team based off of that ranking, what team they are trying out for (it’s important for players to identify whether or not they are trying out for the 17’s team only, 15/16’s team only, or both), ability, and age/grade eligibility.
  8. The 17’s Team will be selected first.
  9. 9 to 11 numbers will be called and those girls whose numbers have been called have been selected to the 17’s team. Upon selection, they will have 10 minutes to sign a letter of commitment.
