2024-25 Club Tryouts

2024-25 Club Season Tryouts Information

M2 Volleyball is excited to welcome you to our 2024-2025 Club Season Tryouts! Registration is now open!

Please see the tables below for the tryout information for your daughter's age group.  Please see our FAQ page for additional information.

Please join our mailing list on our home page for information about upcoming informational parents meetings.  

We will also be offering pre-tryout clinics and camps over the next few months to help your players prepare.  If you are new to M2, we encourage you to participate in a few of these activities so you can get to know the club before tryouts!

Clinics and camps will be announced on our Academy website, and on this page.  You can also follow our Instagram account for the latest information!

NOTE: If you are not going to be in town during tryouts, please see the information at the bottom of the page.  Pre-tryout dates have been set.

Important Considerations

Elite and national teams

It is our intent to form teams during the first day of tryouts.  We understand that many clubs have their tryouts during a very compressed time period.  We encourage you to do your homework in advance, so that on the day of tryouts, if you are offered a position on a team, you know whether you want to accept it or not.

Elite players will be asked to make a deposit at the time of tryouts.  National players will have 24 hours to make their deposit.

We will be having callbacks, and we will also be offering tryouts in the fall to fill any open spots.  However, there is no guarantee that spots will be available after initial tryouts, so we encourage players to tryout on the first day if M2 is their top choice.

Players who either do not get an offer on the first day, or who are unable to attend the first day of tryouts, are welcome to attend callbacks.

U10/U11/U12 Age Groups

U10/U11/U12 levels are 'no cut'.  This means that any player that wishes to play on a team will have the opportunity to do so.  Many of our teams will be developmental, so previous club experience is not a requirement.

During this "tryout" session, players will be evaluated for placement on teams.  At this time, some players may be offered an opportunity to play on an Elite level team, but every player who wishes to do so will be placed on a team. Most of our developmental teams in this age group will play at a Local level, meaning they participate in tournaments in the Atlanta area, and the focus is primarily on skills development vs. competition.

Regional and Local teams

At tryouts, players will have an opportunity to indicate the level of team they wish to try out for.  If a player only wishes to play at a Regional or Local level, they will have that opportunity.  Usually, however, unless explicitly stated, we will offer a player the highest level team we feel they are qualified for.

Tryout Alternatives

Last year, summer tryouts took us all by surprise. And while the time is by no means convenient, it looks like they are here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Fortunately, this year, most of you have been able to make arrangements to be in town in mid-July to participate.  However, we also realize that not every family trip and summer camp can be scheduled around tryouts.  While we don’t want players to have to choose between volleyball and other summer activities, we have to do the best we can with the situation we’ve been given.

To that end, we are offering the following alternatives to main tryouts this year:

  1. Pre-Tryouts:
  • Certain Pre-Tryout Clinics have been designated as “Observation Sessions”.  You need to register for these clinics in addition to registering for tryouts.  
  • U14 and Under Players: Can be observed during the Pre-tryout Clinics on May 22 and June 8
  • U15 and Over Players: Can be observed during the Pre-tryout Clinics on May 21 and June 8
  • Players being observed during these clinics will be considered for teams as if they had attended tryouts…HOWEVER, it is not the same as being there, and they will not be evaluated head to head against other players which may be to their detriment.
  • Players must register for tryouts prior to those sessions, and must separately register for the clinic.
  1. Post Tryouts: 
  • We will have additional callbacks after the initial tryout sessions, likely into early fall.  At this time, we will look to fill any remaining spots on our teams.
  • Keep in mind however, that our goal is to complete as many teams as possible during the initial round of tryouts.  Players, especially those looking to play at an elite level, should keep in mind that we will not be holding spots on those teams for late tryouts.

We have added back a question to our registration form where you can indicate if you are not going to be at tryouts and will instead be doing one of the alternatives.  If the question was not there when you registered, please email us at info@m2volleyballclub.com and we will make a note of it.
