Club volleyball tryouts Sunday



November 11, 2010 - 12:00 AM

Tryouts for the second season of Allen County Aces Volleyball Club action are Sunday.
There are tryouts for five age groups — 13-and-under, 14-and-under, 15-and-under, 16-and-under and 17-and-under. All Aces teams are sponsored by Iola Sonic
“Last year we only had enough players to field a 14-and-under team,” said Jodi Gorver, Iola High head volleyball coach. “Right now, we have kids coming from Fort Scott, Burlington, Uniontown, Waverly. Just from all around plus Iola so we’re looking to be able to fill slots for all five age group teams.”
There is a $10 tryout fee per person. Club tryouts are at Iola High School.
Tryouts for the 13-and-under and 14-and-under teams are from noon to 2 p.m. Tryouts for the 15-and-under, 16-and-under and 17-and-under teams are 2-4 p.m.
“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, nine or 10 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.
