Tryouts

TRYOUT AND EVALUATION PROCESS TO MAKE A CLUB TEAM - SUMMARY

NEW FOR 2018-2019 CLUB SEASON

CURRENT TEJAS PLAYERS

Tejas is permitted to make specific team offers to current Tejas Players for the 2018-2019 season at anytime.  There are no dates or guidelines that must be followed for current Tejas players to be offered a spot on a team for the 2018-2019 club season.  You will not be able to sign a contract and make payment until the official acceptance date for your age group (July 21 for 15's-18's and July 28 for 10's-14's).  We encourage current Tejas Volleyball players to attend as many camps/clinics as possible prior to the official acceptance date for your age group.  This will allow us to evaluate each player and each team properly as we go through the process.  The 2017-2018 club volleyball season at Tejas has been a huge success and we plan to extend an offer to every player to return to Tejas for the 2018-2019 season.

PLAYERS THAT ARE NEW TO TEJAS

Tejas is not permitted to make an official offer to a player new to Tejas until the start of the Evaluation Period (July 5th).  Players that are new to Tejas can attend as many camps/clinics at Tejas prior to the Evaluation Period (July 5) and Tejas can express their interest in you playing for Tejas, but we can not offer you a position on a specific team until the Evaluation Period begins (July 5).  All players will be able to officially accept their offers on the Acceptance Date for their age group (July 21 for 15's-18's and July 28 for 10's-14's).
