Joust Volleyball Club will be holding a series of tryouts throughout the designated official club tryout period (generally between the 1st to 3rd weeks of December) deemed by Volleyball Manitoba yearly.  Please stay tuned (under our Athlete & Parent Info Tab) for our upcoming tryout dates!

Team Tryout Protocol - Athletes looking to acquire a place on one of our teams will look to participate in a minimum of 1 tryout session (dates and athlete individual tryout fees to be announced yearly).  During the tryout session/s our coaching staff will be taking the opportunity to evaluate each athlete.  Upon completion of the tryout session, athletes will be notified via letter of our coaches evaluation and options available.

Approximate Training Guidelines: Joust VC Teams will look to train approximately 3 times weekly on average starting at the beginning of January (exact dates TBA yearly) and concluding end of April to mid May.  Strength & conditioning sessions can also be a part of a Joust VC Athletes commitment, along with tournaments.

At Joust Volleyball Club, we are focused on Athlete DevelopmentALL athletes posses, develop, and progress at different rates. With factors such as growth spurts, injuries, or just time all contributing to an athletes grasp and execution of skills. We feel ALL athletes posses the potential to learn, develop, and enjoy the sport with the option to achieve on multiple levels.

INTRODUCTION & FOUNDATION - BOYS & GIRLS 14U, 13U, 12U

At Joust VC, the focus for our 14U, 13U, 12U Age Groups will be to:

  • introduce each athlete to the sport
  • instill a solid foundation for each athlete to build on as they progress through the different age categories
  • expose each athlete to more then one position, beginning the foundation for a multi-positional athlete
  • introduce physical agility, balance, maintenance, and body weight training tools
  • and of course we can not forget the FUN FACTOR.  At Joust VC, we believe the FUN FACTOR should be present at all ages.  Especially in these younger ages, the FUN FACTOR is KEY when developing a love for the sport & physical activity

FOUNDATION & SEPARATION - BOYS & GIRLS 16U & 15U

At Joust VC, the focus for our 16U & 15U Athletes will be to:

  • provide (new athletes) & reinforce (returning athletes) the same introduction & foundation of our 14U’s
  • work to identify each athletes emerging skill set & physical strengths & weaknesses
  • work to bridge the gap of each athletes emerging strengths & weaknesses
  • take opportunities when presented to expose an athlete to more then 1 position in order to work on becoming more of a multi-positional athlete
  • progressive physical training tools introduced to that of our 14U’s
  • introduce additional physical strength training options
  • introduce athletes to advance drills & training scenarios
  • introduce each athlete to mental awareness & toughness knowledge & tactics
  • NO DESIGNATED LIBERO (Joust VC will not take or train a player for the specific LIBERO role only)
  • continue to incorporate the FUN FACTOR on a progressive level to that of the 14 & Under Category

FOUNDATION & EVOLUTION - BOYS & GIRLS 18U & 17U

With program options dropping dramatically once athletes reach these ages, Joust VC would like to work towards changing this a little by providing this age category option.  Once an athlete reaches this point in their development, athletes & parents have put in a lot of time & financial support to get each athlete to this point, lets keep it going!  Athletes looking to acquire a position on a University or College Team, or just continue their development can feel comfortable knowing Joust VC is offering this option for you to achieve your goals!

At Joust VC, the focus for our 17U & 18U Athletes will be to:

  • provide athletes the same fundamental factors involved in our younger age categories (please refer to categories above for reference)
  • identify each athletes skill set strengths & weakness & bridge the gap
  • provide each athlete with physical agility, balance, maintenance & body weight training tools
  • take opportunities when presented to expose an athlete to more then 1 position in order to work on becoming more of a multi-positional athlete
  • expose each athlete to advance drills & training scenarios
  • provide each athlete with advanced mental awareness & toughness knowledge & tactics
  • provide each athlete with the tools to “evolve” as a player and really come into their own
  • continue to incorporate the FUN FACTOR on a progressive level to that of our 16U & 15U

Athlete Playing (game) Time Guidelines

At Joust VC, we believe it is key in an athletes overall development to receive opportunities to experience game play.  When determining possible game play opportunities for an athlete, we look at the athlete themselves and how they can earn these opportunities through work ethic, respect towards coaches/team mates, focus, confidence, attitude, attendance, willingness to improve, support towards other team mates, development/progression in their skills, ability to handle the various game situations (pressures), and more.

PLEASE NOTE, ANY ATTEMPTS FROM AN ATHLETE THEMSELVES OR PARENTS TO INFLUENCE OR CONFRONT A JOUST VC COACH IN A UNPROFESSIONAL MANOR REGARDING PLAYING TIME (INCLUDING ANOTHER ATHLETE ON THE TEAM) AT ANY TIME, IN ANY FASHION WILL NOT BE TOLERATED, AND WILL SEE THE REMOVAL OF THAT ATHLETE FROM THE PROGRAM IMMEDIATELY, WITH NO REFUND!

*Note - there is NO equal share playing time or fair play rule for 15U and older age classes when it comes to playing time.  14U has a fair play rule, further details on the specifics of this rule will be explained to 14U age class teams
