There will be a $10.00 incidental fee for open gyms and $15.00 incidental fee for tryouts.

A tryout make up day is upon request and must be requested at least a week notice before actual tryouts. Requests go to our email and you must explain why your daughter cannot make our tryouts date.  The make up day will be granted if we have enough girls request a make up tryout and we are able to reserve a gym. FC United is committed to giving the girls every opportunity possible to play volleyball and tryout for one of our teams.
