ELITE TRYOUT INSTRUCTIONS & AGENDA

For players wanting to take their game to the next level – both now and into college – come try out to join one of Fission’s most prestigious teams: Fission ELITE.

In 2025, Fission will be offering ELITE teams for 14U and 16U only. To try out for one of these teams, join us for an hour-long ELITE-exclusive tryout.


July 14th, 2024 | VSU Recreation Center | 1300 Sustella Ave, Valdosta, GA 31601

11:00AM – 12:00PM: Ages 14 & 16

Official tryout activities begin at the start times stated above, so parents and players must arrive far enough in advance to allow for check-in and any individual warm ups.


Since placement on an ELITE Team is not guaranteed, ATTENDANCE AT MAIN TRYOUTS LATER IN THE DAY IS STILL REQUIRED. But for those that want a chance at traveling and competing with only the very best, come earn your place, starting at Fission ELITE Tryouts at 11:00AM on July 14th, 2024 at the VSU Rec Center.

While each athlete that signs up for the ELITE tryout is required to attend the Main Tryout for their age division as well, you only need to pay for this ELITE tryout (not both), & we will make sure you are registered for the Main Tryout.

TEAM TIER INFORMATION & COMPARISON

WHICH TEAM TIER OF FISSION FITS YOU?

Fission was founded to be South Georgia’s ultimate volleyball experience, but that experience comes with flexibility for you and your family. Fission’s four different team Tiers allow you to cater your experience to your unique circumstances and desires.

Wanting to learn more about the difference between Fission’s LOCAL, REGIONAL, NATIONAL, and ELITE team tiers? Review the summary chart and descriptions below as you assess which Tier is best for you and your family.


  • LOCAL TEAMS: for casual playersFor players and families that don’t have the interest, time, or means for a more involved club volleyball experience with Fission. Local teams will practice less, play less, travel less, and pay less, so it is ideal for those that are newer to the game and/or the club volleyball scene.

  • REGIONAL TEAMS: for committed playersFor players and families that are looking to get more out of their club volleyball experience with Fission. Regional teams will practice more, play more, and travel more, allowing for greater player development in a more competitive playing and practicing environment.

  • NATIONAL TEAMS: for champion playersFor players and families that not only want to compete as a Regional team but also want to structure their season around playing at a Nationals tournament. Although similar to Regional, a National team may play in more competitive divisions and more Qualifiers.

  • ELITE TEAMS: for collegiate playersFor players and families that are looking to get the absolute most out of their club volleyball experience as they prepare for their collegiate volleyball experience. Elite teams are comprised of only the best talent, playing in the Open Division of only the best tournaments, maximizing their exposure to recruiters.

 

When buying your ticket for Tryouts, you will be asked to select which Tier (or Tiers) that you are willing and able to participate in for the 2025 season. Your assessment of which Tier(s) is most appropriate for you should be based on a combination of player talent, time commitment, and financial feasibility. Multiple Tiers can be selected. Your selection(s) is not final, and placements on a team of that Tier is not guaranteed.
