Dear prospective IGNITE family, 

At Ignite, we fully realize the stress and pressure tryouts can bring. We want to do all we can to make the experience a fun one for your player.

During the try out process, every player will be formally evaluated and all players will be taken into consideration. Coaches and directors will not only look for individual skill, but also take positions and chemistry into consideration. No parents will be allowed on the courts during try outs, but there will be an Ignite representative in the parent lounge to help answer any questions you might have. 

After the try out process is complete, Coaches and Directors as a team will review player’s evaluations and formulate a list of players to offer contracts to. A list of player alternates will also be comprised and placed on a wait list. The waitlist will not be in any order. Players will be taken off the waitlist and placed on the offer list by positional need. 

IGNITE will not be hosting call backs, as we feel the additional process is overly stressful on players and families. 

Contract offers and wait listed players will be posted the evening of tryouts via try out number on the website. Those chosen as alternates will also be personally informed through email. Families offered contracts will be contacted by phone from a coach or club director so that we can answer any questions and congratulate your player on a job well done. After the intital offer, we are not allowed to continue to initiate contact with your player. You, however, may contact us at any time. 

A set deadline to accept or decline the contract offer. There is a link to those deadlines set by the OVR below. We ask that those who have arrived at a decision let us know quickly because it affects other players waiting to see if there will be a position on a roster for them. We know that waiting to see if you have a spot on a roster is stressful, and we want to do all we can to help make the final roster placement process as easy and anxiety free as possible. 


God Bless,
Heather Piccone, IGNITE Director

Tryout Information 2017-2018 Season
At IGNITE we understand the stress of trying out and not knowing what spots are truly available at a club or have already been offered and committed too by another player. We want to make the tryout process is as honest and simple for you as possible. 

For this reason, we are choosing to publish full disclosure on our early season contracts. You can see those acceptances as well as open age group spots on you "2017-2018 IGNITE Teams" page"

Teams for the 2017-2018 season have yet fully been determined and will be selected at tryouts. Our intention this year is to have Regional, American and Elite 12-17's teams. Although we believe a smaller club better fits our DNA. we did expand the number of teams this year so  that we can offer spots to new families in the area. We did this at a small rate however, in order to keep the club at a  high level of play as well as still personally connect and support each player and their family.  

STEP THREE... 
Walk up registration is always welcome at IGNITE but we would love for you to pre-register in order to save your player the time and hassle of the registration process the day of tryouts. 

Please know that walk up registration lines can be lengthy. If choosing to walk up, please allow for an addtional 20-30 mintues time prior to tryout start. We find pre-registered players are more relaxed and have less anxiety about tryouts. 


STEP ONE... 
Double Check your age group definition for 2017-2018 Season
STEP TWO... 
Purchase a mandatory tryout membership with the OVR. Ohio Valley Region volleyball requires that all players trying out holds a valid try out membership.
