Boys Tryouts

Boys Club Tryouts

Thank you for your interest in joining NorCal Volleyball Club. We offer two tryout opportunities each season: Fall (main) tryouts and Summer (supplemental) tryouts. Every player must register in order to try out for a team. Prior to each tryout, we will hold a series of Pre-Tryout Open Gyms which are free for players who have registered for tryouts. This is a great opportunity to meet our coaches, get early evaluations, and get the rust off before officially trying out.

Summer Tryouts

Supplemental tryouts are meant to fill the last remaining spots on already existing teams. We do not add teams to our program during the Summer. Returning players from Fall are guaranteed their spots on their current teams, and may be considered for moving up (not down). Summer season practices begin May 13th and conclude with AAU BJNVCs July 1-4. Below are the teams we’re offering for Summer season, along with the number of available spots:

TeamOpen Spots

Due to high demand and low availability, NorCal will be holding Summer season tryouts virtually. To tryout, please register below any time between now and May 15th. We will begin evaluating applications on April 10th. After that, applications will be considered in order of registration date.

During the registration process, you will be asked to supply film of you playing. If you have any questions, please email our boys program director at

NorCal’s tryout fee for Summer season virtual tryouts is $20.

Fall Tryouts

These are our main tryouts with which we build our rosters for the entire season, and is the only time of the year when we create new teams and expand our program. Each team will aim to fill all of its available spots during this time. Every player who commits in the Fall is expected to return in the Summer for the second half of our season. Fall season practices begin immediately after tryouts in August and conclude in January. Please arrive 15 minutes early to check-in, and have a parent attend the mandatory parents’ meeting during the beginning of tryouts. If you cannot attend our tryouts but still want to be evaluated to make a team, please register for tryouts and email us in advance.
