NOTE: FOR ALL ATHLETES, all participants must be pre-registered for tryouts. Registration is a two-step process:

  • Register with BYVC via website Links above – you will be sent an invite to join via TeamSnap;
  • Register as a tryout player with Ontario Volleyball Association.  Cost = $0. This ensures you are covered for insurance purposes. If you have already registered with OVA in the past, you still need to update the athlete’s information to “Tryout Player”.  PLEASE COMPLETE THIS STEP SEPT 1st – SEPT 8th. Click HERE to register.

NOTE: Proof of OVA registration as a tryout player in MRS must be shown prior to entering gym.

EIC (Early Contact Initiative) covers 4v4 Rallyball, 6v6 Rallyball and TLS (formerly known as U14). At tryouts, we will be evaluating players based on their skill and placing them on teams that are developmentally appropriate for their level. Please note that only players born 2011 and later are eligible to play 4v4 (they are eligible to play 6v6 or TLS if developmentally appropriate as well). 2010 birth years can be play either 6v6 Rallyball or TLS. You can read more about the EIC at,

Extended Age Groups – Athletes born between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31 may play in either of their natural age group or one age group younger. Athletes are encouraged to participate in their natural age group unless it is more developmentally appropriate for them to play in the age group below or above.

Additional tryouts may be required. These will take place in the week following tryouts. You will be contacted if you are invited to additional tryouts.

Like all officially registered volleyball clubs in Ontario, BYVC will be following the rules and regulations outlined in the OVA Tryout Policy.  Here’s the link with all the details:
