Welcome to 2020-21 Tryout Testing Combine! 

The Ottawa Fusion Volleyball Club will be holding a Tryout / Combine on Saturday September 19th. In partnership with Sport Science Physio Labs, we are excited to use cutting edge technology to evaluate each athlete competing for spot on one of our COMPETE teams. The process will measure various data points around physical attributes, athleticism, along with specific capacities linked to performing volleyball specific skills. Although this combine will not have athletes serving, attacking, passing, it is specifically designed to identify the athletes who currently have the highest athletic and strength capacities among their peer groups that are required to develop dynamic volleyball skills.  Identified athletes will be extended offers to our group of outstanding coaches as a member of a Fusion COMPETE team for the 2020-21 volleyball season.  

In addition to identifying athletes for our COMPETE teams, together in partnership with Sport Science Physio Labs, we are committed to help educate all athletes who attend our combine on what they can improve on.  As part of the tryout combine, athletes will receive aathlete report at the conclusion of the tryout process (late September).  This report will provide great insight as to what strengths and weaknesses where identified at the combine along with some training recommendations to help the athlete improve various capacities linked to elite volleyball athletes.
