Supplemental Tryouts - Ages 12 & Under

Williamsburg Volleyball Club is committed to the safety of our players and staff. Therefore, we are offering online tryouts for our upcoming 2021 Season. Our online tryouts will provide options for returning WVC players, as well as opportunities for new WVC players.

This summer, gym space within James City County has been unavailable due to the impacts of COVID-19. Nonetheless, Williamsburg Volleyball Club is working diligently with James City County Parks and Recreation, and private organizations to secure gym space to start our season in December. We are happy to announce that we will be signing a lease to have our own private gym in Williamsburg for the upcoming season!
