Welcome to the 2023-2024 indoor club season! As we get ready to approach our 8th season in this fantastic community – many thanks to all of you for your commitment to us. We look forward to seeing you all at tryouts, good luck to everyone!

Monday, October 23, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
508 Woodlawn St, Belmont, NC 28012
These will be outside on sand courts. Parents- there is a full bar and kitchen at Thirsty Social.
2 sessions in October indoors @ LOCATIONS TBD, DATES AND TIMES TBD
Our cost for all open gyms is $10. No pre-registration is required.
Open Gyms are available for anyone to attend (who is new to the group) and interested in trying out indoors- a coach (or coaches) will be there to answer questions. Open gyms are a great way to check the group out (culture), meet new friends, play with friends (AND COACHES!!), and see where you are skill-wise alongside other peers, before any sort of commitment.
Galaxy holds our indoor tryouts in November to allow for most of the NCHSAA season to be completed AND to let middle school-age players develop during their school volleyball seasons.
So enjoy the high school and middle school seasons.

Tryouts will be held at the 2 church gyms listed above. Both gyms can host 2 courts if needed.
Parents – we will not have enough room (literally) inside the gym for you to watch your kid at tryouts. I am very sorry. Parents can drop off and pick up.
Playing Ages are based on the USAV-established Playing Ages. Players should try out for their age group; players will be allowed to try out with their peer group (an age up but with players in their grade) upon request. Coaches may move players and combine age groups as needed. For a chart to help check your age division, view this provided by USAV: Age Definition Chart
Please have players checked in at least 15 minutes prior to their tryout session starting.
Please be sure to send water/Gatorade with your player.
REMEMBER You MUST register online for tryouts (YOU WILL NEED A SPORTSENGINE ACCOUNT IT IS FREE).
