*Frequently Asked Questions*
WHEN ARE TRYOUTS?
The Rocky Mountain Region of USAV dictates when clubs can have club team tryouts and is subject to change year to year. For 2022-2023, the allowed "tryout period" will be July 11-17.
We recommend participation in our open gyms and clinics during the summer. Summer Program is also on the website in April.
HOW MANY TEAMS PER AGE GROUP?
We form teams for ages 12 through 18, The number of teams will depend on the number of players trying out, skill level, and the ability to form "club-ready" teams by position.
HOW MANY PLAYERS ON EACH CLUB TEAM?
There are usually 10 players on each team. On occasion, there will be an eleventh player. Developmental teams can have up to 12 players.
IS THERE GUARANTEED PLAYING TIME?
Every Player is guaranteed practice, training, and mental toughness coaching. However, there is no guaranteed playing time in tournaments. Playing time is determined first by skill, then attitude and effort. This is not a recreational club. It is a competitive club.
WHEN AND WHERE ARE PRACTICES?
Each team practices 3 times a week- usually twice during the week and once on Saturday. All are held at Sport Axis and/or Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Broomfield. Teams will have consistent practice times at the same venue the entire season with limited variances.

TRYOUTS- ARE TEAMS PREDETERMINED?
Players are selected for teams based on talent, skill, and positions at the time of tryouts. Our club philosophy is to invite players to tryouts, but not to pressure or bribe them with offers and promises. Inviting players to our tryouts does not guarantee a certain team or position. Rumors regarding tryouts or player selection are inevitable. However, we are an ethical, honest club and will always remain so.
IF MY DAUGHTER IS NOT ABLE TO ATTEND AN OUT OF STATE TOURNAMENT, ANY SCHEDULED TOURNAMENT, PRACTICE, OR TRAINING, DO WE STILL HAVE TO PAY?
YES, in regard to all of the above. Please understand the full commitment to your team, coaches, and club to attend all scheduled practices, training, and all tournaments.
DO PLAYERS ALWAYS HAVE TO WEAR PRACTICE T-SHIRTS TO PRACTICE?
Yes, we are a club that promotes unity among all athletes and all teams.
DO CLUB TEAMS TAKE HOLIDAY BREAKS AND SPRING BREAK?
Club teams usually have the week of Christmas off as well as New Years Eve and Day, and the week of Thanksgiving. It is rare that teams get a week off for Spring Break as that is the busiest month for tournaments. We appreciate and expect everyone to plan their personal activities around the team's calendar schedule and to keep their commitment to the team and the club.
