Monday Callbacks & Make-Up Tryouts

In addition to callbacks for our Sunday tryouts, we may also hold Monday callbacks.  This extra session gives us a chance to further evaluate players and to see players who miss a scheduled weekend tryout time due to an emergency.  Coaches will notify you of the need to attend a callback.

Age Group Date Check-in Time Tryout Start Tryout End Location
U12 & younger


Offers made by MOCO guarantee you a spot on one of our teams until 10 PM on the Tuesday after your tryouts.  For all age groups, the deadline to accept an offer is  Tuesday, November 10, 2023, at 10 PM. After the deadline, we will offer your spot to another player.

Players may receive an offer at any time during the tryout process.

For more information, please refer to the Tryout Process information in CHRVA Junior Recruiting Policy.

Teams & Age Groups

MOCO will offer multiple teams in each of the U11, U12, U13, U14, U15, U16, U17 and U18 divisions.  To determine your age group, please consult the USAV 2023-2024 Age Definitions.

We may add additional teams if circumstances allow, including younger teams in the U10 or U11 divisions.

"Playing Up" policy: Players who want to try out for an age group above their designated group may only do so with the approval of the club.  This is not common, and when considering the request we consider player skill level, grade in school, and relative age to the rest of the team. Please register for the appropriate age group, and provide a complete history of their volleyball experience.  On the registration form, you may select an additional age group to request a tryout for.    We will review your request and let you know if you can attend the older tryout in addition to your age group tryout.

Tryout Sessions

  Important information about our tryout sessions:

  • Offers to play on a MOCO team can be made at any time during the tryout process.  The majority of our offers will be made by Saturday night.
  • If MOCO is your first choice of club, make sure you are registered for a Friday (U13/14) or Saturday (U12-U18) tryout.  If there are no spots available, then select WAITLIST and either the Friday or Saturday time you would prefer.
  • Tryout conflicts: We scheduled our tryouts to minimize overlap as much as possible. If you have a conflict with only one of our tryout times, please register for the time you can attend.  If neither of our tryout times works, please reach out to us at  We will do our best to accommodate players where possible.
  • Callbacks: Based on tryout performance, we may request you return for another tryout session for further evaluation.  These callbacks will be on Sunday or Monday.
  • Waitlist: If the number of players registered for tryouts exceeds our available space, please select "waitlist" on your registration form and we will contact you with additional options.
  • If a tryout time fills up, we will do our best to accommodate our waitlisted registrations. Also, we may reduce the number of tryout sessions per player to allow more players to try out.

Tryout Cost

Tryout fees: $68.50 (plus SE processing fee)
The fee covers all tryout sessions, including any callback tryouts.

Refunds & Change Fees

Tryout registration fees are non-refundable. No refunds will be given if you are unable to attend at the assigned time. MOCO reserves the right to charge a $20 fee (plus SE processing fees) for changes to paid registrations.

COVID Policy

A reminder on COVID protocols. MOCO takes COVID very seriously, and we need you to as well.  The policy is:

DO NOT ATTEND if you have any of the symptoms of COVID or have received a positive test result in the five days prior to a scheduled tryout. If you are required to quarantine due to exposure, you may not attend our tryout.

How to Register for Tryouts in 5 Easy Steps

1. Consult the 2023-2024 AGE CLASSIFICATION chart or use our Age Calculator above to determine the appropriate age group.

2. Register the athlete for a CHRVA Junior Tryout-10 Days Membership (for all age groups select start date of November 3, 2023). Make a note of your 7-digit CHRVA membership number. If you do not have a SportsEngine account, enter an email address and you will start the account creation process. If you make a team, you can upgrade your membership to a full-season membership.    If you need help, refer to CHRVA Membership Help for detailed instructions. If you already purchased a 23-24 Annual Junior Membership for Clinics or our Fall Training Program, your athlete does not need a tryout membership. The annual membership covers tryouts.

3. Review the Tryout Session information below and make a note of the sessions you can attend.

4. Complete the MOCO Tryout Registration (link above and below). Make sure you have an electronic image of your insurance card and a picture of the athlete.

5. Fill out the USAV Medical Release Form and bring a copy with you to tryouts.

Important: Make sure you receive confirmation emails from MOCO with your tryout time and payment details, and from CHRVA with your USAV member number.  If you only receive a CHRVA/USAV confirmation, you are not registered for MOCO tryouts!
