North Texas Region 2024 Evaluation Window + Offer & Acceptance Information

Evaluation Window

The evaluation window (pre-tryouts) starts the day after NTR Bid Regionals on May 6, 2024. Verbal or written non-binding offers without signature(s) may begin to be made by any club to any player in the region at this time. Official binding written offers and exchange of money is not allowed until the acceptance date.

Acceptance Date: July 16, 2024

For all USA Volleyball age groups, the acceptance date is July 16, 2024, for all age groups. Club Directors may make binding offers and may accept any form of payment on or after the acceptance date.

Additional evaluation/tryout clinics will continue until spots on all teams are filled. 

CONTINUED...

The purpose of the evaluation window is to allow athletes to attend multiple club evaluations without the pressure of requiring an athlete to sign immediately.

Parents should be wary of any club that attempts to get you to sign anything prior to the Acceptance date. That would include anything non-binding such as a letter of intent or uniform sizing verification sheets. Execution of these type of documents may cause a sanction to the club as well as the athlete.

Acceptance of an offer may be communicated verbally, but this is a non-binding commitment until the official acceptance is documented via an approved method established by the Region (OCS) on or after the acceptance date. Athletes and families who accept a club’s official binding offer should cease attending other clubs’ tryouts and notify other clubs (in whose tryouts they participated or that have already offered them a position) of their intent to accept an offer with another club. The only approved method for selecting a USAV club will be on the VSTAR OCS system starting on the Acceptance Date through September 1.  Any conflicts between a club’s commitment documentation and the Region OCS entry will ONLY be resolved with the current OCS commitment. All personal business / legal commitments made between the club and a player’s family will remain the responsibility of the related parties. The North Texas Region will not be responsible for enforcing private agreements. Contracts between a club and family are independent of any region obligations and policies.

Clubs conduct different types of tryouts. Become educated about the type of tryout you are attending by asking questions. [i.e., Are the tryouts targeted for a specific team or for any team in the club for which the athlete is age eligible? Has the club already “promised” positions to certain athletes, or is it an “open competition” for all positions? Is the athlete being considered for any team in the club, including the “top” team in her/his age group, or have some teams already been filled? Are the tryouts open to anyone regardless of prior affiliation, or are club members from the prior season given priority?]
