Select Columbia Jrs as their Club in their USAV Membership. (We can't see them as members until you do this step.)

Select their choices (at least three) for jersey number using the link on the front page of our website. (Some players may move from Red to Black, but Jersey numbers are not duplicated between teams, so it won't matter if that happens.)

You can choose to do the tryout only membership at this time.) - (Note: Columbia won't be collecting the USAV fee as part of club fees. Players will need to pay this online.)
  • Bring a completed USAV Medical/Concussion packet to tryouts (Columbia will keep these forms)
  • Bring your $10 Tryout Fee - Check or Money Order (payable to Columbia Juniors) for Columbia's Tryout Fee (exact amount please if paying by cash)

Also:

  • Come dressed to work out. You'll be working hard for the better part of two hours, but having fun as well.
  • Be on time (or early) for your tryout. We often have a line at check-in that can take a few minutes to clear. Check-in opens at least 30 minutes before each tryout!

Paperwork reminder: COPY of USAV Membership; Concussion Form; Medical Release Form; $10 Tryout Fee; Player Profile Form; Grade/gpa Report (High School only)

During Tryouts -

  • Each player will receive a player evaluation form during their Check-In for the tryout for their age-level. Columbia's coaching staff will collect these forms at the start of the tryout to use while evaluating players.
  • Parent Information Meeting - Parents are welcome to participate in an information meeting with our Club Director that starts shortly after the tryout begins. (We have a parent information meeting for each tryout.)
  • Parents are welcome to watch tryouts. (All Columbia practices and activities are always open to parents and guardians.) Seating isn't always available, but you can bring chairs as long as they don't have metal legs which might damage the gym floor.
  • Players may wish to bring water bottles, since water breaks at tryouts release all players at once to the four drinking fountains.
  • Tryouts will end on time.

After Tryouts -

Columbia will provide written offers to players invited to join teams. (Offers may happen both in person and/or online.) Procedures for accepting offers will be posted on the front of our website. Good luck everyone!

If you are offered a spot, watch our website for commitment details, uniform sizing, team meetings, and practice schedules.
