Summer Open Gym & Evaluations

FREE Summer Volleyball Open Gym  for Boys and Girls at The EDGE Volleyball Club

SUMMER 2024 - Changes to our open gyms & evaluations 

Due to changes in the RMR recruiting and evaluation rules, we will structure open gyms a bit differently, and we will begin our open gyms earlier. If you wish to play at The EDGE, attending open gyms and making your interest known is extremely important leading up to tryouts. Players should still strongly consider attending tryouts. Verbal offers will be extended at open gyms as well as at tryouts.

Players are required to register online to attend open gym.  Each open gym session will cost $5 (cash or Venmo) to attend.

  • BOYS - open gyms/tryouts begin Friday, May 31
    • 6:30 PM-8:30 PM - all ages
  • GIRLS - open gyms/evaluations begin Friday, May 3 - Friday May 24, then move to Saturdays on June 1
    • STARTING JUNE 1 - We will start breaking out to three sessions to allow more players in
      • 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM - 13s and 12s and under (see USAV age definitions)
      • 10:45 AM - 12:15 PM - 14s - 15s (see USAV age definitions)
      • 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM - 16s - 18s (see USAV age definitions)
    • STARTING IN AUGUST - We will return to two sessions, registration no longer required, and open gym will be free of charge and go to a "just play" format
      • 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM - 14s and under (see USAV age definitions)
      • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM - 15s - 18s (see USAV age definitions)

Open gyms are 2 hours per session and will be broken up approximately as follows:

  • Approximately 20 minute skill session
  • Approximately 15 minutes of 3s or 4s (players will determine if we use setters)
  • Remainder of time will be 6vs6 free play

In August when teams are formed and we are just providing open gyms as a place to play, the structure will return how our open gyms were in years past.

  • Approximately 20 minutes of queens (unless players want more or less)
  • Remainder will be free ball start 6v6 with players rotating courts to play with new players
  • If an odd number show up, we'll do something to keep it fun and keep players getting reps

What to bring:

  • Players should bring soft kneepads (no hard plastic caps like skate kneepads)
  • Players MUST bring clean-soled court shoes
  • Players  bring A WATER BOTTLE.  We have a bottle filling station. We have water fountains but it's best to have your bottle.
  • We welcome EDGE members and non-members alike to open gym. All players, regardless of club affiliation, are welcome.
  • Players MUST complete a registration online (above). 
  • Cost is $5/session cash/Venmo only
