2017/2018 CLUB TRYOUTS

As Always, The EDGE does NOT charge for Tryouts. Any positions not filled in tryouts, we will fill through our open gyms. Tryouts are also open gyms. So anyone who wants to play is still welcome to attend and get court time. We ask that our club players all attend tryouts to give prospective talent a chance to play with them so we can better see how they’ll mesh.

Accepting a position on a travel team is a commitment to FULL participation of ALL days in ALL tournaments including local Powers! If your athlete may not play all days of a tournament for any reason, please be prepared to be offered a spot with a non-travel team. ALL RED teams are considered travel teams.

The EDGE will run Gold Crown programs for Bear Creek High School, Golden High School, and Arapahoe High School.

What is Gold Crown?
Gold Crown is an outstanding competitive program for 6th-8thgrade athletes . The program was designed to help young recreation league players make the transition from recreation league play, to real competitive volleyball. While not all school feeder programs are created equally, the program is intended for each high school to create a feeder program where the athletes who will attend their school get the best coaching, and get a jump start on how to play positional, transitional volleyball. The schools who work with The EDGE get athletes who have been coached by club level coaches. Our Gold Crown athletes get coaches who coach club volleyball all season, some of whom have coached their teams to top-five in the state in their respective age groups.

What if my athlete does not attend these schools?
No problem! If your athlete attends a school that does not have a Gold Crown feeder program, or you do not like the feeder program for her school of articulation, we can find her a place to play on one of our teams. Gold Crown requires that a roster is made up of 60% athletes from the feeder school. Which means 40% of the roster can be made up of free agents. We firmly believe in the founding principles of the Gold Crown program – which is to give every young player a jump start to learning this sport. We work hard to find every athlete a place to play. Just sign up for any of the tryouts below, and we will find a roster on one of our teams for your athlete.
