UPDATED Tryout Info! (10/27/2020)
November 8, 2020
Faribault Armory, 3000 W Airport Rd, Faribault, MN 55021
12U and 14U (4th - 8th grade) will be 2-3:30 pm
16U and older (9th - 12th grade) will be 4 - 6 pm
Additional tryout information will be provided closer to the date. Your player should plan to wear a face covering to enter/exit the facility. Neck gaiters are suggested for ease of wearing during huddles and other times when players are closer than 6 feet apart.
We will field as many teams as we have coaches and practice space to accommodate. Please review the player handbook (link below) for information regarding team formation and player/parent expectations. Players should be prepared to be flexible with practice days/times, which could include Wednesdays (older teams), Fridays, and Sundays.
Our 11s, 12s, and 14s, teams will play in the Power League at the Midwest Volleyball Warehouse. Tentative dates are:
Youth League (11s): January 10, January 17, February 21, March 7, March 28
12s Division: January 9, January 17, February 20, March 7, March 27
14s Division: January 10, January 16, February 21, March 6, March 28
12s and 14s teams will have additional tournaments. Our 16/17s teams will play at various tournaments around Minnesota.
Northfield Public Schools will be meeting in the next few weeks regarding building use. We are optimistic that we will be allowed practice space! Registration will be opening soon for the winter season. We anticipate tryouts in early November for 11s and 12s teams. Tryouts for 14s and older will be after the high school season ends. Stay tuned to the website and Facebook page for further updates.
Due to the inability to practice at school facilities, NVC will not be able to offer a fall volleyball season. Northern Lights and M1 are offering fall programming for all ages if you are looking for an alternative.
We hope to be able to offer some clinics or open gyms in October and to be able to start the winter season earlier (late October or early November) since the season will be interrupted with the move of the high school season to early spring. All of this, of course, is contingent upon the ability to practice in school facilities and upon the pandemic status at that time. We hope to hold winter season tryouts in October.
For winter season, we will be unable to practice at St. Dominic's, as the school will be using the gym for classrooms to allow for spacing students out. Please be aware that we will need to be creative with practices. Players should plan on Friday and Sunday practices, and possibly Wednesday.
The NVC board will continue to review options. Updates will be posted on the website and Facebook page as new information is received.
Thank you for your patience!
Thanks for a great season!
