IMPORTANT: Your student must have all required forms completed in order to begin tryouts. Only players and coaches are allowed in the gym during tryout times. No siblings, friends, parents, board members, etc. are allowed in the gym during tryouts. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Tryout Cost: There will be a $30 fee to tryout. This fee pays for insurance, and administrative costs. 

Tryout Criteria:  The coaching staff will be looking for coachable athletes who have a great work ethic and want to learn to be better players and teammates. Prior volleyball experience or skill helps, but is not required. Prospective student-athletes will be evaluated for their overall athletic ability and level of volleyball skill. Coaches will apply the following criteria: 

  • Currently enrolled & rising 6th grade Pinckneyville students

  • Attitude: Players who are positive, competitive, team players and eager to learn

  • Athletic Ability: Players with the ability to learn and perform skills

  • Final team selections will be posted on the homepage of the NJBD website by 9pm on the final day of tryouts

  • Team sizes are typically capped at a maximum 12 players for both the A and B team; No additional players can be accepted beyond 12. C  team requires 6 or more players.  While we have been a no cut club in the past, we have been growing tremendously and will reach the point where we cannot accommodate everyone on a team. 


What to expect if you make the NJBD Volleyball Team - The volleyball season kicks off the week before the start of school on Monday, July 29th. Within a week or two of tryouts, you will receive an email with an invoice for your dues payment.  You will also receive more information about schedules, spirit wear, game days, uniforms, and volunteer obligations.


2023 Club dues were $355 per A/B player and $180 per C player- The dues cover tournament entry fees, referee fees, practice equipment, coaches salaries and a jersey. The total number of girls participating in our program determines the final cost per player each seasonNote:  C Team has prorated dues in consideration of fewer practices and matches.  The final amount is determined based on the number of participants. 

Student Conduct – All players must conduct themselves in a professional manner both on and off the court. The school will inform the coaching staff of any disciplinary issues and they reserve the right to suspend or remove a player if deemed necessary.
