2024 Season Tryout Info

Please complete the Tryout Registration prior to coming to the tryout. All registration will be online, no paperwork needed!

  • The tryout cost is $55 .
  • You can tryout at any of the locations for any level or for any practice site.

The purpose of tryouts at Michigan Elite is to assess an individual player’s abilities to place the player on the appropriate level team so they may have fun, improve and excel during the upcoming volleyball season. ALL players must tryout every year. No player will be placed on a team until they have completed the tryout process.

To accomplish this goal, our top-level coaches evaluate players as they participate in drills designed to test their basic volleyball skills. Players are evaluated by multiple coaches throughout the course of the tryout session, the coaches then work together on the team placement process.
