Get Ready for Tryouts!

BVJ has enjoyed offering skills training sessions to players of all levels this summer and through September.  We are limited in gym space in October, due to Covid 19, so we will not be able to continue offering the skill sessions probably until after the first of the year. The gym space that we have available in October-December will be used for our PreTryout Clinics for 10's-15's, our tryouts and then our team practices.

Registration for the PreTryout clinics will open on October 1st. Click on the registration tab above this article that applies to the correct age group.

Cost is $30 per session, and enrollment is limited.

BVJ Coaches will lead you in these clinics that will be very similar to the actual tryout. However, at these clinics, coaches will give you feedback and instruction so that you can be at your best for tryouts.

It is NOT mandatory for you to attend this clinic to tryout. It is merely to give you an idea of what the tryout format looks like and to give you some extra reps.

Brazos Valley Juniors invites any girl that has an interest in getting better in volleyball to attend our tryouts!
