Tryout Information
Thank you for supporting your daughter's decision to tryout for Volleyball at Albany Middle School.  Trying something new and going out for a team is very brave and your daughter should be commended.
 
Due to a record number of students interested in participating, we will be making cuts for all volleyball teams.  Coaches will select players based on several criteria, including, but not limited to;
-attitude
-work ethic
-skill-level
-position played
 
Tryout Schedule:
Wed., Sept. 7th: 
6th Grade ONLY 2:30-3:45 
Thurs., Sept. 8th: 
6th Grade ONLY: 3:15-4:00
7th/8th Grade: 4:00-5:00
Fri., Sept. 9th:
7th/8th Grade: 3:15-4:05
** All tryouts will take place in the AMS gym!
 
Team rosters will be emailed out to parents over the weekend.  Please keep in mind that our coaches will do their best to select players that will create a well-balanced team that will give our students an opportunity to compete.  Rest assured that our coaches will give all students a fair shot at making the team.  
 
If your child doesn't make a team please encourage her to continue to pursue her interest in Volleyball. There are other local options available (YMCA, Albany-Berkeley Volleyball, Club, etc.). Please have a conversation with your daughter about how the tryout process works, limited spots, other local volleyball programs available, and that she should feel proud of herself for participating.
 
GO COBRAS!
