Information on 2017 tryouts

2020 Tryout Information

As of now, tryouts and season remain on schedule.  Tryouts are subject to change with any state, local, district or UIL orders due to COVID-19.  Any changes to what is below will be updated as soon as possible. 

You are only eligible to tryout if you have completed the following:

1. You are registered at SLHS 

2. Athletes must have a physical to tryout however; 

  • The UIL Legislative Council recently approved a recommendation from the UIL Medical Advisory Committee regarding physicals. In summary -- incoming 9th grade students must receive a physical prior to participation for the 2020-2021 school year. In addition, new or existing students who answer “yes” to any of the six questions on the physical, will also be required to have a physical prior to participation in athletics for the 2020-2021 school year. Katy ISD will release the 2020-2021 UIL Physical Form on June 1 on the Athletics Department website. If you are a returning athlete and did not mark "yes" to any of the six questions on the phyiscal last year, then your physical is still in RankOne and you are able to tryout without getting another physical.  

3. Have all your RankOne paperwork complete (signature forms listed in the athlete's account in www.rankonesport.com)

4. Please email a PDF of your daughter's birth certificate and a PDF of an utility bill dated after May 1st to DanielleMRussell@katyisd.org prior to tryouts. We will need these documents on file to show UIL compliance if your daughter makes a team; however; it is helpful if we can get everyone's prior to tryouts.

As you can see, we begin our season well before school begins and it is very important that you are willing to give a 100% commitment once Aug. 3 rolls around.  Therefore, we ask that you plan all vacations and other commitments before that date.  There will be no late tryouts and you must be present both days of tryouts.

 

2020 Summer Open Gyms

OPEN GYMS/SKILLS SESSIONS

There will be Open Gyms and VB Skills Sessions offered in July.  A new ruling from UIL has allowed players to be instructed by a coach in their feeder pattern for 2 hours each week of summer.  If you play multiple sports, that two hours must be split between your respective sports.  A VB Skills Session will be the first hour of each Open Gym. 

DATES: will be announced soon

Attendance is not mandatory and has no bearing on if you make a team or not, but we encourage you to come.

New Students

If you recently moved to the Seven Lakes HS school zone and you want to tryout for volleyball please email me, AmyCCataline@katyisd.org.
