Putnam VC Tryout Location and Directions

In an effort to make things easier for parents and players, we wanted to clarify and make things as simple as possible during the tryout phase. Tryouts are stressful enough for the girls (without being late), so we wanted to give you a map and directions to the entry point of tryouts. The tryout location is the same for all age group levels. Please if you have any questions contact us.

If you will put the address below into Google maps, it will bring you to the front of Winfield Middle School, the Location of Tryouts. We have also provided a direct link below to direction from Teays Valley, WV located on I64. After you arrive follow the map provided to the location that is located around the back to the school.

How will Travel Teams be Chosen?

Putnam Volleyball Travel Teams will be selected on the tryout dates listed below. Travel teams will be chosen based on the athletes skill and positions needed. 10 girls will be chosen per team to travel to tournaments and 3 to 4 girls will be chosen to be alternate practice players with the travel team to sharpen their skills and the possible opportunity to travel with the team if injury, sickness or other reason of absence should happen. Once travel players are offered a position on the travel team, they will have 5 days to accept or decline the offer to the club. If the player accepts, club dues are $725.00; payment can be made in full or in three payments as follows. Players that make the alternate roster dues are $300.00.picture3

  • Payment #1 $225.00 due 12/09/16
  • Payment #2 $250.00 due 01/06/17
  • Payment #3 $250.00 due 01/27/17 

Question: If 25 girls are at tryouts for a particular age group and 10 travel players are chosen and my daughter is the 11th player on the list and one of the ten players chosen declines, will my daughter have the opportunity to be on the travel team?

Answer: Yes, if a player chosen for one of the 10 travel spots declines we will move to the alternates and extend a travel position to them.
