Tryout Philosophy

First and foremost VAE’s tryouts are open to all athletes, free from preferential treatment, and void of pre-selected roster positions. All athletes are required to earn their spot within the club through participating in the tryout and selection process. No Exceptions.

What you can expect from the VAE staff and coaches is the utmost level of professionalism, integrity, and objectivity while working with each athlete throughout the selection process.

VAE’s unique format gives our coaching staff the opportunity to evaluate and assess talent within an environment of teaching, encouragement, and personal interaction for each aspiring athlete. Some of the key element in which evaluators will consider during the tryout process will be:

  • Skill level
  • Coach-ability
  • Athleticism
  • Work ethic
  • Competitive drive
  • Long term potential
  • Positive attitude/enthusiasm

Finally, VAE strives to provide a positive, energy-filled, and purposeful tryout for each prospective athlete. You are evaluating us as much as we’re watching you. To win you over to VAE you will get the BEST from our coaches as they bring out the BEST within you.
