COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. – USA Volleyball will conduct an open tryout for athletes interested in positions with the U.S. Women's National Training Team and the U.S. Women's National Summer Training Program (including possible placement on the 2003 USA Pan American Games team) at the Reily Student Recreation Center on the campus of Tulane University in New Orleans from Dec. 21-22.

The first session of the tryout will take place from 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 21, followed by a session on Sunday, Dec. 22 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The 2002 NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Championship match is tentatively scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 21 at the New Orleans Arena.

Prospective applicants for the Women's National Training Team should have completed their collegiate eligibility and, if selected, should be prepared to begin their training as early as mid-January 2003. Training Team members displaying proficient skill levels will be selected to participate in USA National Team competitions. Participation with the USA National Training Team will continue indefinitely or until either the athlete or National Team staff feel that is it no longer in the best interest of the program and/or the athlete for them to continue.

Female athletes still possessing college eligibility will be evaluated for participation in the 2003 Pan American Games, which will be held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Aug. 1-17 of next year. The tryout for the women's USA Pan American Games team falls under the "but for" conditions determined by the NCAA (see NCAA rule All collegiate athletes enrolled in school during the 2002-2003 academic year that will be traveling to New Orleans for this tryout will be attempting to become a part of this team.

Although there may be a number of specific programs conducted for these athletes during the summer of 2003, the primary focus will be to identify prospective athletes to come to Colorado Springs for training with the Women's National Training Team. The projected length of this commitment would be from approximately mid-June through mid-to-late July 2003. Please note that the actual dates of participation may vary until the U.S. Women's National Team schedule is solidified for next year.

As well as training directly with the members of the National Team and National Training Team, those selected may be eligible to become participating members of the National Team during the summer months, if the National Team staff so desires. These athletes although not considered a "team" (i.e. A2), will be part of the National Training Team and will be projected to be involved in at least one competition during their term of participation. Local room/board/transportation will be provided by USA Volleyball and the United States Olympic Committee.

All tryout participants will be assessed a tryout fee of $75. Interested athletes may obtain the necessary registration forms (PDF files) posted in the National Team section of the USA Volleyball web site (www.usavolleyball.org). If you do not have the capability to receive PDF files on your computer, you can download the program for free at the USAV web site.
