Administrative Info/COVID precautions

  • Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled tryout.
  • Please wear a shirt with a number on it to tryouts. If you don't have a shirt with a number, use tape to create the number of your choice.
  • Only tryout staff and players may enter the gym, per CHRVA's COVID guidelines.
  • All participants will have temperature taken prior to entering facility.
  • Tryout staff will remain masked the entire time. Players will be required to wear a mask during tryouts as well, even during active, on-court play. Please wear a mask to tryouts, making sure it covers your nose and mouth.
  • On the court during tryouts, boys will be asked to social distance as much as possible.
  • All participants are expected to follow our COVID precautions. Players or staff not adhering to the protocol will be given a warning, and then asked to leave the gym after repeated infractions. 

 

 

 

Three Step Registration Process

 

STEP 1)  REGISTER WITH CHRVA

 

Having a USA Volleyball and the Chesapeake Region (CHRVA) membership is MANDATORY.  All players must be registered with USA Volleyball through the CHRVA registration to be eligible to participate in tryouts. This is a Chesapeake Region requirement, which must be followed by all clubs.

 

CHRVA Registration must be done by a parent on behalf of your player. Have your credit card and parent's drivers license available. To participate in tryouts, you may choose the Full Season Membership or the One Event Membership (this just covers tryouts):

 

One Event Membership - needed for tryouts

To register with CHRVA for tryouts, choose "Junior Tryout - 10 days."  You must get to the point where your CHRVA card is generated, if you don't see a card, keep going! Your CHRVA# (ex: CH0000000FJ20) will be needed in step #2.

 

Full Season Membership - needed once on a team

If you are selected for a team, you will need to log back in and upgrade to the full season (additional $30) and select St Mary's County Juniors Volleyball. The "full season" membership cost is $55. 

 

 

STEP 2)  Fill out the SMCJ Tryout Registration Form by clicking REGISTER on the above tab.

 

 Your CHRVA # generated in step 1 will be required on the SMCJ tryout online registration form

 

STEP 3) Submit required paperwork (see above) to SMCJVolleyball@gmail.com
