How to Register 1 - 2 - 3

While you can register onsite at the day of the tryouts,  we would HIGHLY recommend that you pre-register online by completing steps 1, 2, & 3 below and have all of your forms pre-printed  to save you time on the day of tryouts. There's usually a long line on that day. 
 
Here are the steps to pre-register:

 

1. Determine the age group for your child

The age group that your child can play for during this upcoming season is determined by what their age will be prior to September 1st, 2020. A tool for determining this can be found by clicking here. (Be sure to select the 2019-2020 Season)

2. Complete the online Registration form 

Complete the Alabama Juniors Online Registration tryout form. If you plan on pre-paying to get the discounted tryout rate, follow the payment instructions above.

3. Complete the SRVA membership form and medical release form, print them, and bring them to the tryouts.

  • NOTE - USAV/SRVA registration will open no later than 10/1/19 for all Junior players.   When registration does open, you will notice that there is a new option this season. You will be purchasing a "TRYOUT" Membership for $5.00 prior to attending your first club tryout. There is a full explanation in the "Registration Frequently Asked Questions" document and if you make a team, then you will follow the instructions in "How do I update my membership?"
  • Go to the Southern Region Volleyball website at srva.org.
  • Click on the 'Ready to Join SRVA'  menu link . Click on either Returning Member or NEW Member depending on whether it's your first time to ever register with SRVA. There are links for Returning Member Instructions and New Member Instructions. Please read over these and follow the instructionsas the SRVA website has a new registration method this year.
  • If you have trouble with any of this, we will have someone available to assist you in completing the registration at the parent meetings and at the tryouts.

4. Attend the pre-registration parent meetings (recommended)

We will have a pre-registration parent meeting for the 12's-14's and 15's and up at Simmons Middle School. The dates for the meetings are listed above. In these meetings, we will go into detail about our club, tryouts, and expectations for travel volleyball. This will also allow you to pre-register and pay your tryout fee to save time for your daughter on the day of the tryouts.

5. Tryouts

All tryouts will be at Simmons Middle School. You can pay the tryout fee on the day of tryouts with either a check or credit card, or you can pre-pay at the parent meeting.

6. Commit to play

After tryouts, team selections will be posted on the website. If you are selected for a team, you can let us know if are for sure playing, but commitment day for all SRVA clubs will be posted. On those days, we will be at the gym for you to bring your first payment and get sized for your uniforms.
