Tryout Info

Players will be evaluated using the attached rubric & form during the tryout process. Please note - some categories like coachability and effort - may be weighted more than skills, especially for new and developing players.**

**New and developing players, please do not be intimidated by this rubric! For rising 9th graders the coaches are looking for effort, potential and attitude more than immediate mastery of skills.

Recommendations from the NFSHSA

Volleyball has been categorized as a "moderate risk" sport, but could be low risk "with appropriate cleaning of equipment and use of masks by participants."

https://www.nj.com/highschoolsports/2020/05/national-guidelines-released-for-hs-sports-return-on-the-way-to-a-new-normal.html

In Phase 1 of return, gatherings would involve no more than 10 individuals, locker rooms would not be utilized and distances of six feet or more must be maintained.

All athletic equipment, including balls, should be cleaned after each use and prior to the next workout, and balls shouldn’t be passed or thrown between individuals. Athletes should not make contact with each other.

In Phase 2, up to 50 individuals may gather for outdoor workouts and 10 people inside. Social distancing of six feet must be maintained between individuals.

Lower risk sports practices and competitions may resume, while modified practices may begin for moderate risk sports.

In Phase 3, individuals should maintain a distance of three to six feet while not engaged in competition. Gatherings of up to 50 people can occur indoors or outdoors.

Moderate risk sports practices and competitions may begin, and modified practices may begin for higher risk sports.

New State Tournament Format

Key points from article:

Instead of just 5 overall group tournaments, we'll now have 18 (maybe?) sectional tournaments based on geography.
 
Power points will determine seeding instead of the committee approach previously used.
