Aftershock Pre-Tryout Clinic

This clinic precedes our 2021-2022 Tryouts and is an opportunity for junior girl athletes to brush up on their volleyball skill sets and help prepare them for our tryouts. It also gives our coaches a preview of your volleyball skills which will help them to place you on a team most suitable for you for the 2021-2022 season.

All girls are welcome, including girls who are brand new to volleyball. You do not need to commit to trying out for Aftershock to attend this clinic. It is open to all girls ages 10 to 18 regardless of your intent to tryout or not.

Other Information

Please be advised that current public health guidelines require masks for indoor settings. Since our tryouts will be held indoors, masks will be required for anyone entering the gym.

An optional informational meeting with the Club Director will be provided at each tryout approximately 15 minutes after the start of the tryout.

Member handbooks will also be available at tryouts, which includes the Fee Schedule, Competition Schedules, and information about the club and how we operate.


Player Sign-Ups and First Team Practice

Player sign-ups and the first team meeting and practice will take place on November 7 at Piner High School.

Coaches will inform their teams of the time for their practice and sign-up.

Players will be sized for uniforms at this practice and both players and parents will have a chance to meet their player’s coach, team-mates and fellow parents. Parents will also complete the Aftershock Sign-Up Packet and pay club fees for the year, either in full or via a payment plan. We accept personal checks, cash, money orders and cashier’s checks.
