Welcome to the BRYC Girls 15 National Team Page (2016-10-19)

Team Philosophy

Goal setting – Setting and accomplishing goals is the measurement for success

Teamwork - Teams that perform the bets are the ones that like, respect, and support their teammates in a positive way both on and off the court

Accountability – Take pride in your own actions and ensure that you have given 100% effort to accomplish your responsibilities on the team; being self-motivated is necessary in order for you to improve as a person and an athlete

Focus on the fundamentals – Developing a foundation in the fundamental skills of volleyball is critical to the future success of an athlete

Volleyball is fun - We intend to keep it that way!


Tryouts

Our BRYC 15’s National Team tryout is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, November 13th at Lake Braddock Secondary School starting at 8:30am. The players that attend our tryout can expect to participate in drills that provide opportunities for our coaches to evaluate each player’s passing, setting, hitting, serving, and communication skills and observe hustle and enthusiasm. SAPT trainers will measure each player’s height and a few fitness/strength/agility indicators (e.g., vertical reach, vertical jump, maneuvering among cones).

Players will be evaluated on the following criteria:
