“They can bring all those items the day of tryouts but it all has to be filled out and the registration with USA Volleyball has to be done online,” Grover said.
Grover said if a player is not selected for a team with the Allen County Aces, she can apply for a refund of her individual registration fee up until Dec. 31.
“Club volleyball is a way to teach fundamentals and teamwork,” Grover said. “Club volleyball’s mission is to support and guide all athletes to become the best volleyball player they can be.”
Following the tryouts, seven or nine players will be offered a position on each team.
The Allen County Aces teams will play in Heart of America volleyball tournaments. Play begins January and can run through April.
Grover said she will meet with parents while tryouts are going on. She will explain the cost of being on a team, which includes an HOA membership, tournament, club and uniform fees.
Tryout registration forms were distributed to Iola and area schools. Registration can be done the day of the tryouts. Forms have to be filled out and signed by a parent or guardian plus the tryout fee.
