HOW TO REGISTER

RESOURCES

For those who have not played at Illini Elite in the past - we will once again be a JVA (Junior Volleyball Association) and AAU club so you will NOT have to register and pay for a USA Volleyball membership in order to tryout and participate at Illini Elite. Again this year, all tryout registration and JVA Release/Liability and Medical forms must be completed online. Please be sure to read the instructions in order to complete your registration. 

Tryout Registration Instructions:

 - Please DO NOT wait until the last minute when registering.  How many players we have trying out will impact how we are able to conduct tryouts. We will update everyone when registration opens.

 - If you already have an AllPlayers.com account and have registered for prior programs you NEED TO MAKE SURE YOUR DAUGHTER'S GRADE IS CORRECT.  While the system should require you to enter it again, please check to be sure it is correct.

Steps:

PART 1

1)     Log in or create a new account by going to: http://illinielite.allplayers.com and then click “Register” or “Log in” in the top right corner. Once you have been logged in to your account, you can then go back to the “Featured Products” page.

NOTE: If you do not log in or create an account before attempting to check-out, you will get a “One Moment” prompt that will not let you proceed.

2)     Register for tryouts. To register for tryouts select the correct program and age group from the “Featured products” and follow the directions on that screen. If you do not know your age group please contact us at Kyle@illinielite.com.
