About ST7 Alternate Tryout
ST7 is truly excited to announce tryouts for our 2023 - 2024 Club Season. This will be our 10th season in Lake County Florida offering top-quality professional training to young athletes in a healthy and encouraging environment. Our professional coaching and administrative staff are dedicated to the success of each athlete both on and off the court. Your athlete's success is our greatest reward. Over the past 10 years, with the support of our ST7 coaches and administration, our young athletes have accomplished their goals. 100% of our senior athletes who wanted to play collegiate volleyball have signed to play at DI, DII, and DIII schools next year. Numerous ST7 athletes have been named AAU Academic All-Americans. Three have been selected as USAV Scholarship recipients. Many more have received All-Tournament awards and High School MVP awards. Come experience the ST7 difference!

Tryout Guidelines for Current or Previous ST7 Members: ST7 reserves the right to refuse tryout registration to any athletes with poor discipline, attendance records, or conduct detrimental to the team. Tryout registration may also be refused for athletes or parents/legal guardians who have demonstrated disharmony regarding the purpose, objectives, standards, policies, rules, or regulations of the club. In addition, athletes will not be allowed to register for tryouts until all financial obligations for the athlete or any immediate family member of the athlete are brought current. Any athlete who left a previous season without completing their financial obligations or the financial obligations of an immediate family member will have to pay any outstanding balance and pay at least half of the upcoming club season’s fees in order to be re-signed.
Tryout Criteria: Athletes are evaluated based on their skills, fundamentals, teamwork, communication, attitude, discipline, leadership, positions, and other skills and attributes. All of these factors will be taken into consideration in the placement decisions.
Tryout Fee: This fee covers all expenses related to tryouts for one athlete for the 2023-2024 club volleyball season with ST7; including coaches fee, court rental, and administrative fees. Payment of the tryout fee does not guarantee placement on a club team for the 2023-2024 club season nor will the fee be refunded if an athlete is not placed on a team. Register by June 30, 2023, to pay the reduced tryout fee of $50. Beginning July 1st, the tryout fee will be $75. The tryout fee may be refunded if the tryout is canceled with written notice to email@example.com at least 48 hours prior to the tryout date registered for. If canceled with less than 48 hours' notice, there will be no refund.
Team Placement: ST7 will post the names of the athletes who were placed on an ST7 club team on our website www.st7volleyball.com on July 20th for 15U - 18U. Athletes and parents must visit the website on this date in order to verify if their athlete was placed on a team.
Athlete Commitment Requirements: If placed, an athlete must confirm their commitment to the season within 24 hours by reading the ST7 Parent/Athlete Handbook and signing the letter of commitment. The letter of commitment will be available as an electronic link online with the tryout results on July 20th. If we do not receive the signed letter of commitment within 24 hours of placement, we will assume you are not committing and may offer your position to another athlete. If your athlete is placed but you choose to not commit to the season, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To read the ST7 Parent/Athlete Handbook: Click here.
