´╗┐Save the Date - July 21, 2021

Please tell all of your friends, family, school teammates, and co-workers, as we don't want anyone to miss this amazing opportunity:  

College Prep Tryouts (12-18U Black & Red plus 16 & 18 Onyx)  will be July 21st @ Empowered Sports Club! 

Top Reasons Why Early Tryouts Make Sense, and National Level Clubs and Larger States are Now Switching to July: 

  1. To Assist with National Tournament Registrations opening October 1st of Each Year
  2. Early tryouts will allow us to register our Black, Red & Onyx (16 &18U) teams more efficiently and correctly rather than having to guess what teams we are going to have and in what division (level).  
  3. Current system, we have to register teams for the largest most competitive events before we even have tryouts and know the talent level we are going to have. 
  4. Uniform Ordering Process
  5. Ordering our uniforms early will allow more time for our Black, Red & Onyx (16 &18U) level athletes to receive their uniform packages, and gives more time for corrections or adjustments to be made.
  6. 15-18U athletes, Black, Red, & Onyx, play the beginning of January and we are always pressured to get our sublimated uniforms in on time, as they typically take longer. 
  7. Enjoy High School/Middle School Season
  8. Won’t have to worry about club tryouts while trying to focus on school season.
  9. No longer have to worry about unnecessary pressure from other club coaches & directors to try out throughout the school season. 
  10. Start Training Earlier
  11. With the National Level Tournament Schedule starting early January, we can now start preparing in November.
  12. Easier Membership Process 
  13. The 2020-21 USAV Membership & AES Roster Registration process was difficult. Early tryouts will allow for more time to work through the membership registration process, without the stress of deadlines. 
  14. Certification Process for Coaches
  15. Coaches will have more time to acquire their USAV Memberships, complete Safe Sport, Impact Training, and Background Checks. 
  16. More Fundraising & Lower Payments
  17. Allows Empowered Growth Academy and Families more time to fundraise before the travel season starts.
  18. Also allows payment plans to be stretched out over a longer period of time, lowering monthly payments. 

High School Prep Tryouts (White, Navy, Gray, and OVC teams) will still be in Late September/Early October for 10-14U and Late October/Early November for 15-18U, like previous years. Specific Dates will be released in August. 

Any young athlete wishing to play volleyball in School, College, or Professionally, Empowered is the only way.  Empowered is the area's only Elite One-Stop Shop for all of your Volleyball Needs and Desires, and the only club in the Midwest who has a 100% COLLEGE PLACEMENT RATE!  Even during the craziness of Covid we will have one of the BIGGEST RECRUITING CLASSES IN THE COUNTRY with 20 athletes graduating this year, and going on to play at the next level!  


Hope to See You at Tryouts.
