Become a QCVC Athlete!
Do you want a high performance training experience?
Do you have aspirations to play post-secondary volleyball?
Tryouts start typically in the beginning of October, once SVA opens the tryout period. This process can typically take a couple of weeks. There will be a fee when registering for evaluations. QCVC will not accept athletes without prior registration. Walk-ups will not be accepted. In order to be considered for the Royal Purple team, attendance on the first day of evaluations is required.
Each age division will have a separate tryout time (below). Please ensure you register for the appropriate time for your age group.
For the Royal program, evaluators and/or coaches will rate the skills of each of the athletes based on what they see during evaluations. We do our best to place every athlete on a team in the Royal program. The number of athletes and available coaches will determine the number of teams. It is possible that we may not be able to place every athlete on a team.
For the Elite program, applications are required. Coaches will review the received applications and will determine if a try-out is necessary. Because the Elite program is based on tryouts, cuts may happen. Applications closed on August 31, 2023.
If you apply for Elite and are not selected, you are required to register for the Royal Program. You will not automatically be transferred over to that program. Registration for Royal Program will remain open for a small period of time after Elite selections are made.
The Board of Directors reserves the right to determine the number of age categories of the teams it will field.
***QCVC requires athletes to register for tryouts in their correct age class***
QCVC encourages athletes to compete in their proper age class to ensure adherence to the LTAD model and the QCVC curriculum. In special cases, the club may choose to offer a roster spot to an underage athlete (ex: a 16u athlete is offered a roster spot on the 17u team). The club will initiate this process with the athlete at tryouts, after discussion between QCVC head coaches of the involved age classes.
If an athlete registers for the incorrect age class, an email will be sent informing the athlete that their registration will be moved to the correct age class and that they should plan to attend the proper tryout.
Registration closed for the season.

For Athletes born September – December: Volleyball Canada has designated a 16-month span for each age class. As a result, athletes born between the months of September and December who are eligible for two age classes are encouraged to register for the age class they deem most appropriate for themselves. At tryouts, head coaches of each age class will discuss athletes born in these months to ensure they are evaluated and placed appropriately.
