The West Florida Waves invites all players to tryout for our mini season of AAU Volleyball.  AAU is a short season consisting of 2 to 3 tournaments during the period after the Gulf Coast Regional Tournament.  Players are NOT required to obtain a release from the region in order to participate with a different club for AAU as they are two separate organizations.

Practice Times for AAU teams will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the UWF Field House in Pensacola, Florida.  Additional Practice times may be available on other days but are dependent on team, facility and coaches decisions.

Cost will vary depending on the number of tournaments and which tournaments are played but typically run between $600 – $1000 dollars. Fund Raising activities to help teams with tournament costs, team fees and hotels are available and can be coordinated with the Fundraising staff at the West Florida Waves.

Typical Tournaments will consist of the following tournaments but are also subject to the decision of the coach and the teams as to participation in all tournaments available.
