Tryouts – Power A-F

February 7, 2016 @ 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Bayard Rustin Educational Complex
351 West 18th Street
New York, NY 10011

If you are trying out for Power A/B/C, you should arrive by 1:00 PM on Sunday, February 7 at the Bayard Rustin Educational Complex, located at 351 W 18th Street. Your tryout will start promptly at 2:00 PM.

If you are trying out for Power D/E/F, you should arrive by 3:00 PM on Sunday, February 7. Your tryout will start promptly at 4:00 PM.

You will only need to try out once to be evaluated by coaches, even if your registration includes classes in both time blocks. Please attend the earlier tryout if this is the case (for example, if you are tryout out for Power C and D, you should attend the 2:00 PM tryout).

We wanted to share some quick information on the program with everyone trying out. Gotham Power is designed to be a year-long training program starting in the Fall, independent of Gotham’s League Play. The goal of thePower is to train and improve individual volleyball skills in a class environment with people of a similar skill level.

Tryouts are formatted to be similar to a typical Power class, with coaches leading a series of drills and evaluating players abilities, skills, and coachability. The groups will be split between our two gyms by the coaches, and the tryout will last for approximately 2 hours.

We also want to note that while Gotham is always excited by the interest in thePower program, we have a limited number of spots available in each class, especially in the Spring. The Gotham Board does not have a say over who is or is not selected, and so cannot answer questions in this regard.

Given this, we ask that if you are registered and try out, that you are committed to joining the program. Those that are selected and drop out before classes start are taking a spot away from someone who wanted to participate.
