Synergy Volleyball has a no cut policy.  Everyone that attends try outs will be offered a spot on a team.  We will have four tryout dates (two tryouts per age group).  We will host tryouts on Sunday October 29th & Monday October 30th for 12s, 13s and 14s.  We will host tryouts on Sunday November 12th & Monday November 13th for 15s, 16s, 17s and 18s.  While we are offering two dates, we suggest tryout out on the Sunday dates for the best opportunity to receive a high offer.  No offers will be extended until the conclusion of each tryout.

Tryouts cost $40 if preregistered online or $50 on site.

In order to tryout, all athletes need to purchase a KRVA tryout membership.  This is required by the Keystone Region which oversees volleyball in our region.  The tryout membership can be purchased here for $15:

Team Levels

Synergy offers teams at the National, Travel and Regional levels.

National teams will begin practicing in December.  The teams will practice three times per week (twice during the week and on Sunday).  National teams are required to attend either USA Nationals in Detroit or AAU Nationals in Orlando.  The season will run from January through late June or early July.  The teams will also compete in at least two National Qualifiers: the Philadelphia NEQ and one event to be determined.  Additionally, the teams will compete in 10-12 total tournaments.  National teams compete at the highest level and therefore require air travel. Tuition does not cover travel costs.

Travel teams will begin practicing in December.  The teams will practice three times per week (twice during the week and on Sunday).  Travel teams will have the option of whether or not they want to attend one of the National Championship events.  This decision must be made by March 31, 2018.  These teams will attend the MLK tournament in Lancaster, the Capitol Hill Classic in Washington, DC, the Northeast Qualifier in Philadelphia and the Jersey Southside Festival in Atlantic City.  Additionally, these teams will compete in about 10 total tournaments.  If teams opt to not attend Nationals, the season will conclude in early May.  Tuition does not include travel costs.

Regional teams will begin practicing in January.  The teams will practice twice per week (once during the week and on Sunday).  The teams will compete in eight tournaments.  All of the tournaments will be single-day tournaments within our region.  Overnight travel is not required.  The season will conclude at the end of April.
