The 2020-2021 Season is starting soon! PLEASE READ THE HANDBOOK! There are some changes that had to be made for this season, including cost and times for practices, so make sure you are aware of the required commitment before you sign up for tryouts. A link to the Handbook is on the top left side of this page.
Before Coming to Tryouts - You must register with the Iowa Volleyball Region
The Iowa Volleyball Region and USA Volleyball have a new way of registering this year - through SportsEngine, which is what Boost already uses!
1. The first step is to create a free Parent Account. Then, you add your children under that account, that way your whole family is under one Household Account. Click here to watch a video about account creation. Doing it right the first time will help avoid frustration later! (If your player created an account under her name last year, I would recommend starting over with a parent account this year.)
2. Once you have an account in SportsEngine (you can still use the same parent account as last year, if applicable) then you can register with the Iowa Volleyball Region. Going to this page will give you complete instructions, and then by scrolling down, you'll see the links to register. You may choose to either register with a Tryout membership ($10 or $15) or a Full Junior Membership ($50 for 6th-11th grade, or $30 for 4th and 5th grade). Please bring proof of this registration to our tryout.
Once you've done all that, you're ready to come to our tryout and you can register using the link below.
All tryouts and call-backs will take place at the GreenState Family Fieldhouse in Coralville.
The cost for our Tryout (including the call-back date) is $20. This is completely separate from the fee that the Iowa Volleyball Region charges for their registration. Click the button below to register for tryouts and you may either pay at the time of registration or bring cash/check to the tryout.

Individual and Small Group lessons have been an awesome way to continue improving your skills while keeping your contact with others minimal (during this crazy time we are in!). Lessons will continue in the evenings throughout the school year.
Choose what you want to work on, and Pitch will tailor your lesson to your needs or the needs of your small group!

Pitch will take every precaution possible to teach in a safe manner, but due to current health concerns, participants will be required to sign two Release of Liability Waivers before lessons begin. Those waivers can be downloaded from this website (top, left hand corner).
