*All ages must attend both tryout dates


STEP 1: Check Age Requirement

BEFORE YOU REGISTER FOR TRYOUTS: Please use the USA Volleyball Age Chart to verify your correct age group for tryouts. All players must tryout at their USA Volleyball age unless Niagara Frontier staff asks you to attend an alternate age group. If you tryout at the wrong age group, you risk not being offered a position on a team. 

Girl players trying out for "travel" are expected to accept a position on Navy or Red.

STEP 3: REGISTER WITH WEVA (Western Empire Volleyball Association)

WEVA is the club's sanctioning body which governs our policies and provides insurance for practices and events.  WEVA registration is required for all athletes. 


Only NEW players to the club must register with WEVA before tryouts. 

Go to WEVA website to register for a "tryout membership".  You will be asked to show your WEVA membership at tryout check-in.

Returning players membership is valid through October 31st of 2019.  Niagara Frontier will send a reminder when it is time for you to renew after the tryout process is complete.
