For information about the nature of the DIGS Program, please return to the Home Page and view web pages under "About DIGS" on the top banner navigation bar.
The 2020 DIGS team try-outs will be held this year during the following dates; Friday, September 18 through Sunday, September 20, 2020.
After you register online, you will receive a separate email stating your tryout date & time-slot. This is due to the limited number of athletes/coaches allowed in the gym at one time. If you cannot attend your assigned time slot - please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to be reschedule that same weekend!!
Note: To determine the correct age division, please check check the USA Volleyball Junior Player Age Definition at: USA Volleyball
Each session will last approximately 1 1/2 hours. All DIGS tryouts will be held at "Our Oakland Gym" - The New Jersey Sports House - 12 Wright Way, Oakland, New Jersey. Please have athletes to their tryouts ½ hour before their scheduled tryout time. All athletes will have to be temperature scanned and hand in the COVID Questionnaire before proceeding into the gym. Without the COVID Questionnaire - signed by both the athlete and parent - the athlete will not be allowed to tryout. Any athletes with a temperature over 100.3 will have to be sent home.
Friday, September 18, 5:30pm-9:00pm- Oakland gym
Saturday September 19, 9:00am-6:30pm- Oakland gym
Sunday, September 20, 9:00am-4:30pm- Oakland gym
No walk-ins will be allowed and online registration will close on Thursday, September 17 to allow for scheduling and emailing everyone the scheduled day and time for their daughter's tryout session.
Athletes are also required to wear appropriate volleyball gear, including knee pads, sneakers or volleyball shoes, a T-shirt, shorts and socks.
Due to the limited amount of people that can be in the gym - no parents/spectators are allowed in the building.
All participants (athletes & coaches) must wear a face covering at all times. The only exception will be athletes/coaches on the court during the tryout itself as they will not be required to wear a face mask.
During water breaks - athletes must maintain social distancing.
Cleaning measures will take place before and after each tryout session. This includes cleaning the game balls, wiping down the poles, etc. between each session.
The Oakland gym has separate entrance and exit doors to keep all foot traffic going in one direction. Parents should be waiting in the parking lot to pick up your athlete as parents are not allowed in the building.
Registration actually involves three different online registrations:
SPORTSENGINE registration & GEVA registration (GEVA is the regional organizing body for USAV volleyball). This is detailed in Step 2.
DIGS registration - Set up a new parent account (or access your account from a previous season) and select either the "15 and Under" or "16 and Above". You then complete registration (including making online credit card) and print out a confirmation. This is detailed in Step 3.
In Step 4, you assemble a packet to mail in to DIGS - this includes the GEVA and DIGS forms, plus proof of age and medical insurance coverage.
If you wish to formally register for tryouts, you should now proceed to Registration Process Step 2: Complete the SPORTSENGINE & GEVA Online Registration - with the GEVA/USAV medical form.
