Stay in Touch with Remind: Though unlikely, in case we need to get in contact with you (last minute), click on the following link from your phone https://www.remind.com/join/furytryout or text @furytryout to the number 81010.  This will allow for us to send you a mass-text with updated information.

IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTANDFury, like so many other Long Island clubs, does not wish to do two things: first, hold tryouts in the middle of your varsity playoffs, and second, force your tryout to be rushed and occur after tournament registration dates.  SO.....we get our own insurance policy and hold tryouts at a time that makes more sense (to us).  GEVA and USA Volleyball have nothing to do with our tryout.  An "authorized tryout" is not a requirement for clubs.  Accepted offers are as binding as any corporation's offer would be (so be careful with any tryout).  GEVA will enforce offers made only in accordance with its guidelines.  Once the official season begins (GEVA acceptance date is Nov 7), and you are a member of USA Volleyball, then you are covered like any GEVA/USA Volleyball member.

Season Tuition (estimated):
18s: between $2,400 and $2,500
17s: between
$2,100 and $2,200
16s: between $1,900 and $2,000
15s: between $1,900 and $2,000
**When pondering club tuitions, always try to compare apples to apples.  Some clubs require the girls to actually stay with the parents at tournaments or charge additionally for their accommodations?!?!  Our tuition includes the girls' hotel expenses (this is a huge cost).

FURY Registration:
Download, print and complete the following FURY tryout information form/waiver and bring this with you to tryouts.

USA Volleyball Registration (do not complete this step until Nov 7):
To play club volleyball, you must register AND PAY online with USA Volleyball.  If needed, click here for help.  You will need to provide FURY with  both a printed copy of the proof of registration email  as well as a completed USA Volleyball medical release form (again, this is not a requirement for the tryout).  Be sure to retain the original (or another copy) for yourself.  Your registration cost applies to any club chosen.

Medical Release Form (do not complete this step until Nov 7):
Complete the following USA Volleyball medical release form and provide it to the club you are playing for (hopefully FURY!).

What to Wear:  
    spandex or shorts
    t-shirt (especially if you have one with your last name on it)
    kneepads
    sneakers
    DO NOT bring your own volleyball

Age Groups:
    We anticipate running teams at the 14s, 15s, 16s, 17s, and 18s  levels.
    Typically, age groups correspond with the following grade-levels:
    18s: high school seniors (and any truly elite high school player)
    17s: high school juniors
    16s: high school sophomores
    15s: high school freshmen (and advanced 8th graders)

    14s: should gym space allow, we will host a 14s tryout in early/mid November. 
            Any 14s (middle school players) that would like to try out for 15's are more than welcomed.

    **There are some exceptions to the age/grade connections, so
       plan to verify team selection at tryouts or by clicking here.

Notification:
    FURY will post offers within 24 hours of the end of tryouts.  
    We will then be holding our signing meeting shortly thereafter.  
    This is a mandatory meeting to attend with a parent (or both)
    to join the club and will be announced at tryouts.  Should an
    offered player not show at the signing meeting (without an
    agreement in place), another offer may be made to a previously
    cut player.

CONTRACT SIGNING MEETING - TBD
1.  Plan to arrive with a parent to our Contract Signing Meeting on TBD at TBD in the ESM cafeteria. As the possibility always exists for an unfortunate change of availability by the school, please be sure to check our website periodically.  
2.  Immediately following the meeting, all teams will have their first practice in the gym from 8-10.
3.  For the meeting, the following needs to be accomplished:
       ~  execution of contracts
       ~  preparation of player information sheets including
              sizing for uniforms and gear
       ~  a brief team meeting by your coach(es)
  **Additionally, we will be offering a parent gear order on this date only.  Parents may choose to purchase either a long-sleeve dri-fit shirt or a coaches collared shirt (available in both men’s and women’s cuts and sizing).  Please come prepared to pay for these optional items at the meeting (pricing still pending at this time).
4.  Prior to arriving to the meeting, please be sure you have accomplished the following:        
       ~  Fully registered with GEVA/USA Volleyball.

       ~  Switched your GEVA registration over to FURY
5.  PAYMENT:  On Wednesday, please arrive with one of two payment options…   
Option #1:  Arrive with payment in full.  Either a check made out to “Long Island FURY Volleyball” or cash will work.  
Option #2:  Arrive with three checks.  One will be dated present-day, the other two will be dated January 31, 2015 and February 20, 2015 (be careful with the year!).  A finance fee of $50 is included in the payment plan (though it is actually a savings for those paying in full).  A cost breakdown for payment plans are as follows:        
**If a special arrangement needs to be worked out, please contact Coach Consorte at wg99@aol.com prior to the meeting to work out the details.   
6.  As an absolute last resort, if you cannot attend the contract signing meeting, you can email us at mcuccinello@optonline.net and we can send you the contract to print, sign, and send in with your daughter.  However, I cannot stress the importance of being present at the meeting as there is a considerable amount of important information to be addressed.
7.  If you do not make a team, but wish to be considered as an alternate should someone not accept, please contact Coach Cuccinello at mcuccinello@optonline.net.
