Tryouts 2022-2023

STEP 1: REGISTER OR RENEW YOUR CHRVA MEMBERSHIP

MANDATORY CHRVA REGISTRATION

The Chesapeake Region (CHRVA) requires all players to register with USA Volleyball BEFORE they can try out for any club.  This is a requirement for every club in the Chesapeake Region.  For Baltimore Elite to be in compliance with CHRVA requirements, players must enter their USAV member number to register online for tryouts. Online registration will be limited on the day of tryouts.  Please register with USA Volleyball by clicking HERE before completing the Baltimore Elite online registration for tryouts.  Remember to print out a copy of your USA Volleyball Membership Card and bring to tryouts.  To do this:

  • Login to the SportsEngine site
  • Click on "Household" and then click on the player's card
  • Click "View Details"
  • Next to the membership, click the three dots and then select "print a copy."
  • Take a screenshot and bring a copy with you to tryouts.

*The full time membership is $55.  There is also the option to purchase a 10 day tryout membership for $20 that will need to be upgraded to a full time membership once you have joined a team.  If you select the tryout membership, make sure the dates cover our tryout period.

Please use the same email address (PARENT email) for both your Sports Engine account and your CHRVA/USA membership account!

TRYOUT COST

​Tryout fee is $50.   The tryout fee covers both days of tryouts if applicable.

If you missed the early registration or prefer to pay in person, the fee is payable by cash, venmo, CashApp, or credit card at the time of tryouts.  Checks are no longer accepted.  Please arrive 30-45 minutes early.  We strongly encourage you to pay online for tryouts to save time at check-in.

2022-2023 TRYOUT SCHEDULE

Players need to attend one of the two tryout sessions for their age group.  Players are welcome and encouraged to attend both tryout sessions without an additional charge.  Boys ages 9-13 are also welcome to attend tryouts at the posted times.  If we have enough boys at the younger age levels, we will have boys only teams.  If not, boys 13 and younger can play on co-ed teams.

  • Please show up at least 30 minutes early in order to get through registration. 
  • No spectators will be allowed during tryouts.  All parents/guardians are being asked to wait in their cars.
  • Once offers are made, you will have 48 hours to make your decision.  If we do not hear back from you, we will offer the next person on the wait list.  Offers are good until Tuesday, November 15 at 10:00pm.
  • If you are given an offer and decide to play for another club, please let us know asap so that we can offer to another player on our wait list.
  • If you are on the wait list, please be patient.  We understand how stressful this process is and appreciate your patience and understanding!   We will let you know when rosters are full.
  •  We will have our Uniform Fitting/Commitment Night on Thursday, November 17 at St. Paul's School for Girls (Performance Gym) and practices will start the week of November 28.  The November deposit/payment will be due on November 17.
