  • All tryouts this season will be OPEN tryouts. Registration will open on February 9th.

  • Click Here for '24-'25 Age Group Definitions

What if I cannot make the tryout date?

  • Communicate directly with Konst Dimov ( as early as possible that you are unable to attend. We have a large network of coaches and contacts in the community and will try to gather as much information as possible about your play.
  • Send a follow up email the week before the tryouts to confirm your interest in SMASH.
  • ONLY for athletes who MUST miss both July tryout dates - we will offer an alternative tryout opportunity on JUNE 9TH. To register, please email explaining your situation and you will receive a link to register.

How many spots will be available for each team?

  • At SMASH, all teams are "new" teams every year. We have new players join our club every year at almost every age group! Unless you have confirmation directly from SMASH that a team is full, you can assume there are positions available.

What are the differences between 'top' and 'second' teams at SMASH?

  • At SMASH, we only have strong teams who train seriously. Unlike other clubs, we consider all of our teams "Elite" or "National" level teams. Our "2nd" teams routinely finish in the top 5 teams in the entire New England region at their age group and attend nationals. These teams benefit greatly from our competitive practice environment, travel out of region, two strong coaches, and are often recruited to play in college.

15's have tryout dates in July and in September. When will these teams be selected?

  • SMASH 15's and SMASH 15's Power will be selected in July. However, we recognize that some strong athletes try volleyball for the first time in high school. We will host an additional tryout for 15U players who are strong athletes and who are interested in developing their volleyball skills with SMASH, but were not able to attend in July. We will form a third team in this age group, 15's Lava, composed of these strong athletes! If appropriate, players from this tryout may be added to rosters of SMASH 15's or SMASH 15's Power.
  • If you tryout in July and make a SMASH team, you will not need to attend in September. If you tryout in July and are NOT selected, you are welcome to try again in September at no additional cost.

Please reach out to Konst Dimov at if you have any questions
