Whirlwind's Current Status - 11/25/20

Please see the update to the tryout date for the 17/18U players.  We will hold their second tryout on Monday, November 30, from 7-9 at the JC YMCA.

At this time, we need you to get your players registered ASAP.  We need to understand the numbers in order that we can accommodate the limitations we may face.  Please use the following instructions that were previously provided to complete the registrations – both registrations are required.

  1. Whirlwind tryout registration – Because we need to plan ahead based on potential limitations on participant numbers, please register for the Whirlwind tryout registration as soon as possible.  Please go to www.whirlwindvbc.com and click on the registration button.  You should find the Registration for 2020-21.  For those new to the club, this website sets up your account as a family, the first screen should be filled out for the parent who will receive all information.  The e-mail address placed on that page will be the e-mail account where all information is provided.  There is a $50 tryout fee which we mentioned during the parent meeting.
  2. USAV tryout registration – this registration is required because every participant trying out is required to be a registered member of USA Volleyball.  Please register at www.ireva.org – across the top you will also find a registration button.  Please select the tryout registration – there is a $20 registration fee.  Once your player is registered, you should receive an e-mail with their registration card.  Please have your player bring this card to the tryout.

Please see below for the most recent tryout schedule.

2020-2021 USAV Registration Information

Every player participating in a Whirlwind Volleyball Club activity is required to obtain a USA Volleyball membership prior to participating in the Whirlwind Volleyball Club activities.  The following notes will get you started in the registration process:

Go to www.ireva.org

Along the top banner, there is a "Registration" link.  Click on that link and there will be a drop-down box with a second "Registration" link.   Click the second "Registration" link.

For those existing Whirlwind members who were registered on our website, you should receive a screen which identifies the people within your household who have been previously registered.  You can click on your player and take it from there.  Please register and pay for the tryout fee, and then we will upgrade your membership later.

For those new to travel volleyball, you will get a screen where you will need to fill in your parent information and then it will take you to your player information.  Please put your parent information on that first screen because that is the e-mail that will receive the communications from our Whirlwind website once we have you fully registered.

Please pay close attention to the confirming e-mails that you will receive.  There should be a membership card provided in one of those e-mails and we will need to see the membership card prior to the first activity in order to confirm that registration has been completed.

If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.  Thanks!

The Whirlwind Volleyball Club was established to expand Junior Olympic Volleyball in the triple cities region by offering a greater opportunity for competitive play and an enhanced volleyball training experience.  Whirlwind Volleyball believes that every player should be offered the opportunity to develop skills that will enable them to excel and compete successfully at the interscholastic, regional and/or national level of youth volleyball.

We are committed to providing the best possible environment for our volleyball players to reach their maximum playing potential through excellence in coaching and community support.  Our players will be challenged to excel not only for their own personal growth but also for the betterment of their team, the organization, the development of area club coaches and the communities in which they live.
