Tryout Information

Tryouts for the 2019/2020 club season are coming up! We have positions available on all of our club teams at Ohio Premier with limited spots on our 15’s, 16’s, 17"s and 18"s teams. Currently, we offer teams for 9U–18U age groups. Tryouts are open to all players, regardless if you have played for Ohio Premier. Please go to our Club Teams/Coaches page to view the teams, levels and coaches for each team. Our coaches/team pages will be updated soon to have the current club season information.   


All tryouts will take place at 7900 E. Kemper Road at Ronnie Grandison Basketball/Volleyball Academy. The building is attached to Kids First. The cost for tryouts will be $25 per player for the 9U-12U, $30 per player for the 13U-14U and $25 per player for 15U-18U. Once you sign up for tryouts and pay there will be no refunds. 


Some clubs require players to register with USA Volleyball and obtain a “tryout USA membership” in order to attend tryouts. Although we are a registered USA Volleyball Club and will compete in the Ohio Valley Region, this is not required to attend tryouts at Ohio Premier. Players who do make a team will need to register with USA Volleyball and turn in a copy of their registration card at the team meeting, but that membership is not required to attend our tryouts.  


We realize that there are many overlaps between club tryouts, so we welcome players to come at any time during tryouts: coming late or leaving early as needed. The important thing is to come! Players are highly encouraged to come to their age group time and day.  If they absolutely cannot make their age group they can attend a different age group but Ginger Hineline needs to be notified that a player is attending another age group’s time.  Players will have the best advantage to making a club team if they attend their correct age/grade for tryouts.  This will give us the best opportunity to evaluate players to the best of our ability. If a player cannot attend one of the tryouts in their age group, they must contact Ginger Hineline. If you do not attend the first session of an age group you are welcome to attend the second session even if there are callbacks but please notify Ginger.  Parents are not allowed to stay in the facility during tryouts. Once everyone is checked in and tryouts begin, parents will be asked to leave. They can return when tryouts are over, but cannot enter the facility until the exact time that tryouts are over. If parents come into the gym during tryouts they will be asked to leave. If you are bringing a player late or have to get a player early from tryouts please notify Ginger.  Placement on a team and the process to accept or decline a position along with how alternates will work will be explained at tryouts and on our website soon.  During check-in players will be asked if they want National, American or Regional.  If a player wants to be considered for any team then they can say any team. Descriptions of the different levels along with detailed information will be posted soon on our website.  


Pre-registration is highly recommended to avoid long lines the day of tryouts.  Players can register for tryouts now (click here).  There will be paperwork that needs to be filled out and brought to tryouts. We accept walk-ins, but pre-registration is recommended.  

Team costs and general information about each team will be posted soon.

If you have questions about the team divisions, team costs, coaches, tryout/registration process please contact the director, Ginger Hineline at ginger@ohiopremiervc.com or 513-623-3093.  All of the tryout, club and team information is also on our website at www.ohiopremiervc.com.

Pre-Tryout Open Gyms

Ohio Premier Pre-Tryout Open Gyms for current 6th, 7th and 8th graders.  These Open gyms are designed to give players an opportunity to get contact on the ball before club tryouts.  Coaches will be present on the court but there will be no instruction/coaching during open gym.  Coaches will only be there to facilitate the running of open gym.  Players must pre-register on our website.  If the open gyms are full players can still register and be placed on the waiting list and if someone drops we will move players up from the waiting list. If you are placed on the waiting list you do not have to pay until you are moved up.  There is a limit on the number of players per court to allow for more play and contact.  Register soon because of limited spots are available and these will fill up.  Current 6th graders that attend these open gyms we will use a regular weight ball and junior high height net. 


Each Player's season for their public school team 7-8 grade must be completed in order to participate in these open gyms per OHSAA rules (Cincinnati Dioese League is exempt from the OHSAA rule).
