ALL tryout signups/registrations as well as ANY program participation signup is always done through SportsEngine (the platform of this website and all club sites.) In order to register for MGA Tryouts or programs, you MUST do the following:

1.) Check your Sports Engine account to ensure you have ONLY ONE SportsEngine account in use/active for you/your profile. Sometimes players have more than one or a parent makes a new one to sign you up, etc. You MUST have a current player account that is registered under your parent's email address if you are under 18.  MAKE SURE you are using the appropriate account or we will NOT be able to roster you on a tram after tryouts. Any questions, contact SportsEngine. 

2.) Make sure your USAV Membership is for the current 2022-2023 season. Do this by logging into your SportsEngine account and clicking on your Profile. You can purchase your REQUIRED dual USA/NERVA Membership. You will enter this current membership ID when you are signing up.

After you have completed these two items you can register for MGA Tryouts using the link below. **Keep in mind that failure to have a current membership or only one current SE profile can block your signup and team spot notifications**

The Registration "Tryout Info" is not currently available.

10 things you need to know about Tryouts


  1. Eat breakfast: do not skip this step! 

  2. Dress: spandex or shorts and a regular T-shirt (NO tank tops), volleyball sneakers, knee pads 

  3. Bring: water bottle and light snacks: granola bars, banana, apple or carrots, ½ sandwich -turkey, ham or chicken are good choices (please no peanut butter or nuts as we will not know of any allergies ahead of time)

  4. Bring Paperwork and payment if you did not pre-register: you can find the forms on our website

  5. Get to the venue early: if you pre-registered, you will still need to check in; if you did not pre-register, we will need time to review your documents and take information

  6. Settle in: put your stuff where indicated and start warming up by peppering or a dynamic stretch

  7. You will be guided through every drill: Coaches will tell you what you are doing, show what you are doing and have other players demonstrate what you will be doing: you do not need to know drills to be able to follow along but you will need to pay attention

  8. You will be moved around in different groups: do not read into this: just part of the process

  9. You are being evaluated all the time: attitude is as important as skill: how you treat each other, how you encourage or discourage others is being viewed, how you recuperate after making a mistake (and everyone will make a lot of mistakes!) is noted: give your best effort and that includes best attitude

  10. This is FUN not stressful: you will find the right program that matches your skill level, your commitment level and your schedule
