News and Announcements
At the specified time for your age group, join us at the Bel Air Athletic Club with your athletic clothes, shoes, water (recommended), and any medical necessities.
The tryout should last approximately 2 hours with breaks, which will examine skills, athleticisim, sport knowledge, coach-ability, and teamwork. We make but a few promises: you will learn something, you will enjoy yourself, and you will be given a fair chance to be made an offer for a team.
Further and more specific information is listed in the Basic Information page listed here.
We look forward to meeting you!

Generally, the season runs from December through early May. Practice is two nights per week, with tournaments running full days on either Saturdays or Sundays (or both if a multi-day tournament). As this is a regional program, our teams travel from Virginia to Delaware and Pennsylvania, with the majority of our tourneys being within Maryland.

After tryouts, our coaching staff assembles to compare notes and evaluations. As a club, we weigh the options to determine which players are invited to join teams, and to which team they are invited. Our decisions are focused on an optimization of needs of the player and of the teams to ensure that we build competitive teams that excite and challenge every player therein.
After receiving an invitation, the prospective players have several days to decide if they’d like to join us. Once an invitation is accepted, however, that invitation and acceptance are binding. This will then allow us to muster the teams into a roster, which will then be announced at a club-wide meeting.
At the club meeting, coaching staff and players will meet one another. Parents are encouraged to engage the coaching and administrative staff with any questions that may still linger. Lastly, measurements will be taken to order new uniforms in anticipation of our season.
Bottom line: in order to begin the tryout process, you’ll need to first register with CHRVA (link is also on the homepage) to get your USAV member number. Goto the Tryout Registration tab above and fill out the registration form (or be come early on the tryout day to register on site). Bring your athletic gear, some water, and great energy…prepared to show us a great and coachable athlete…and we’ll all have some fun!
