2024 TRYOUTS - Beach Club --Elite TRAVEL Team

NW Juniors Elite Travel Team.

Step one in the process is to tryout for NW Juniors Elite Travel Team. Players will be selected to our travel team via the tryout process. We expect to take 16-24 total athletes in each category: U12/U14 and U16/U18. We will use the skill level of those at tryouts to determine the total number of athletes we select. 

We encourage all those interested in our Elite Travel Team to  tryout to see where they rank among those interested. However, we ask that athletes and their families look at the practice, tournament, and travel schedules in determining whether or not they wish to take a spot on the Elite Travel Team.  (Scroll down for further details and to register.)  

TRYOUT DATES: All Age groups U12-U18.
*If a player is accepted on our Travel Team, then the Travel Team registration link will be e-mailed to you once you accept the offer.  *Offers for our Travel Team will be made 2-5 days after the 2nd Tryout date.
*If a player is not selected, then they are encouraged to register for our regular non-travel beach club.

Elite Team Details - Additional Memberships you will need for tournaments...

Our intention is to provide our Elite Travel Team athletes a higher level experience. Combining the training schedule, the travel events, as well as the "recommended" tournament schedule. We feel that those athletes that are looking for a better experience and "team" experiences will find that with our program.  As part of the Elite Travel Team, besides AAU, two additional memberships will be needed:

  1. USA Volleyball membership. Athletes that participate in indoor junior programming typically secure this membership as part of their participation.  For those that did not participate in an USAV indoor junior club, they can secure a "beach only" membership. This membership is required for the BNQ, BRQ, and some travel events to Oregon.
  2. P1440 Membership (valid thru Dec 31, 2024). Beach Tournaments & Travel Tournaments. Regional and National memberships available.  Regional can be upgraded to National.
  3. AVP America membership.  Beach Tournaments: AVP Beach Series events. It may also be needed to participate in one or more of our travel tournament.  Players must secure the Silver Level or greater of this membership to participate in our AVP Beach Series tournaments and it is good for 12 months.
