2024 Club TRYOUTS 

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN OUR 2024
13-18U CLUB SEASON TRYOUT.  

   WE WILL BE HOLDING TRYOUTS FOR AGES 8-13 ON OCTOBER 8, 2:00-4:00 PM.

Our Club Season is a competitive travel season that begins in November.

National level team seasons run from November through mid-June with a short break in May prior to National Championship tournament preparation. Regional level teams run November to late April/early May.


ATTENDING TRYOUTS IS MANDATORY FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN PLAYING FOR GAINESVILLE JUNIORS FOR THE 2024 CLUB SEASON.

Club Season Tryout Information:

  • Gainesville Juniors offers teams from 10U-18U (find your athlete's USAV age division here).

  • We will have up to three levels of teams per age group. Teams will have varying fees dependent on the level and number of practices and tournaments. Our fees will range between approximately  $2,900 and $4,300 for the 2024 season (which will include National Championship tournament fees for the teams that go).

  • A commitment contract and a non-refundable deposit of $500 will be due within 48 hours of all team placement offers.

  • After athletes have made their team commitments, parents are REQUIRED to attend a mandatory meeting to fill out all required paperwork, try on uniforms, etc. Attendance is imperative as we will be on a deadline for ordering uniforms. If you cannot make this meeting, contact gainesvillejuniorsweb@gmail.com as soon as possible. 

  • All communication from Gainesville Juniors regarding tryouts, registration, meeting times, payments, etc. will be sent through Sports Engine. You will be required to set up an account in order to tryout. Make sure you use updated contact information so you will be alerted to any correspondence from Sports Engine without having to log in to the website to find pertinent information. 

  • Registration for 2024 tryouts are online through Sports Engine only. We will not have paper registration on the day of tryouts. Please make sure to register online prior to tryout day. 

  • We strongly encourage attending the July 29-30 tryout. However, if that is not possible, a makeup tryout will be held for a limited number of players on Sunday, August 6, 2023. Please register online and email gainesvillejuniorsweb@gmail.com to notify club directors that your child cannot attend the main tryout.
     

  • See FAQ below for additional information.

  • How much are the club season fees?
    Our club season fees vary depending on age group, number of tournaments, and level of team. The variation is due to the differences in practice schedules, coaches, the number of tournaments, and length of season. In general our club fees will range from $2,200-$4,200 which includes the uniform package. The fees do not include transportation to or accommodations at tournaments. This year, club fees will include National tournament fees.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Scheduled payment options will be made available. These options will be discussed at the parent meeting after teams are announced.
  • Do all teams travel?
    Not all teams travel for multi-day tournaments. National level teams play multi-day tournaments and will potentially travel outside the state of Florida and up to two National Championship Tournaments. Regional level teams generally attend multi-day tournaments within Florida and possibly outside of Florida (but would not require plane travel). State level teams usually travel within two hours of Gainesville for one day tournaments and may potentially play one overnight tournament during the season.
  • Can my child try out for an older age-group team?
    We require all athletes to try out with their appropriate age group. Coaches will assess the player's skill level and consider the needs of each team to determine whether it is possible for a player to play up.
  • How many players do you carry on a team?
    Ideally, we place 10 players on a team, but will not exceed 12.
  • How often do the teams practice?
    Our teams practice 2-3 times per week, depending on age group and level. National teams practice 3 times per week. The exact schedule will not be available until after team placements, but will be a set schedule for the whole season. Usually, our younger teams practice 5:30-7:30pm and our older teams practice 7:30-9:30pm, but that is not guaranteed.
  • Are teams more or less set before tryouts, or do you take new players?
    We are committed to putting together competetive teams at every level. That means we are taking a fresh look every year. Player development can fluctuate and we want to give every athlete, new or established, a chance to compete for a position. There are no guarantees for players to be placed on the same level team as the previous year. Likewise, new players are considered for all level teams.
  • What if a player is injured and can't try out?
    In the event an athlete is injured, contact us (gaiensvillejuniorsweb@gmail.com) as soon as possible. In order to be considered for a team, registration must be complete and tryout fee payment must be made on or before the tryout day. There will be no guarantees of placement on a particular level team.
  • What if a player can not make it to either day of the tryout?
    Contact us (gainesvillejuniorsweb@gmail.com) as soon as possible to let us know. Placement on a team can not be guaranteed.
  • When will a player find out who her coach will be?
    Coaches for National level teams will be identified at the time of team placement offer.
