Prior to Tryouts


Maine Juniors Volleyball Coaches and Volunteer Administrative Team are fired up for another great season!  Below are the THREE steps you should take to complete your registration for the 2022-2023 Maine Juniors season.  Registration is not complete without all THREE steps.

NOTE: In 2020, USA Volleyball (USAV) registration moved to SportsEngine (from Webpoint). Each family should create a SportsEngine account and then register their players from that account. The USAV registration must be complete and paid before coming to Maine Juniors tryouts.

When registering in SportsEngine, the player does not select a club. After Maine Juniors tryouts players will receive an email invitation to join a Maine Juniors team. Accepting that invitation will add the player to the Maine Juniors club.

For instructions on creating an account and registering for USAV under SportsEngine please use this link:



Step 1. Register with USAV

USA Volleyball (USAV) is the parent organization under which Maine Juniors operates.  Each player must be registered with USAV before coming to tryouts.  The USAV membership fee must be paid online when registering.

As noted above, you must use SportsEngine for USAV registration:

You must have a SEASON Juniors Membership to play.  New this year, USAV offers a Tryout Membership.  Do not select this option if you intend to play the full season or you will have to pay twice for a membership.  Be sure to select the SEASON membership.  Your 7-digit membership number will be printed on your member card, which can be found in SportsEngine under My SportsEngine –> Household –> Player Name. 

Please note: When you register for USAV membership, there is a box for “Do you want to play in college?”  If you click yes, you are registered with a NCSA recruiting account.  You do not need to click yes!  The NCSA is a very aggressive recruiting organization that tries to sell you services.  Please keep in mind that Maine Juniors has a recruiting coordinator (Louise Hester) who can help you with your recruiting needs for free.  She can be reached at

Step 2. Fill out the Maine Juniors Tryout Registration on PlayerFirst

Step 3. Bring the USAV Medical Release Form

Download and print the USAV Medical Release Form and bring the completed paper form with you to your tryout date.  Be sure the player’s health insurance information is completed legibly and that the form is signed by both the player and a parent/guardian.  You will not be able to step on the court unless this form is filled in entirely and signed correctly.
