Click link below to register for TRYOUTS!

Hello Thunder families!  We are excited to get started too!
However, our theme right now is, "GO SLOW TO GO FAST"!
REGISTER FOR TRYOUTS TODAY!  Click on registration link above to complete.
7/31/20: Updates: The following is tentatively being scheduled for the week of August 10th.  This may change in the next week with the Tempe Board making decisions for return to school on August 5th as well as Governor Ducey's next series of "orders" on August 7th. 
THIS IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW.. All districts are making their own decisions about what phase each are in.  This is why some programs may already be in the gym.  Tempe Union is in phase 1.  Very restricted activity.  Some districts are in phase 2.   We are hoping to move into phase 2 before August 10th.  We need to be in phase 3 by 8/17 for somewhat normal tryouts/training.  PLEASE UNDERSTAND that we would love to be in the gym but we are following district guidelines at this time.  SAFETY is our highest priority for our players as well as our coaching staff!  
Here's what we are penciling in!!
1. Tentative "meet and greet" plus 2 mini boot camp/open gym days the week of the 10th! 
2.  Tryouts are still scheduled for the 17th.  We are super excited to see all our returning and new faces!  Be sure you are CLEARED through RMA to participate AND registered for tryouts on this website!  T-shirts will be ordered from the tryout registrations.
3.  Sophomores-Seniors trying out for a JV/Varsity position must be in ADV PE third hour with Coach C.  This does not guarantee you will make a team but is necessary if you are.  Freshman do not need to sign up for Freshman ADV PE to be selected.
TRYOUTS ARE 8/17/20!
1.  Register on this website for tryouts!
2.  Must be cleared through RMA and concussion testing should start soon with DV trainers.  You will receive an email from DV to sign up for times if needed. 
3.  Must be in Adv PE/Strength and Performance 3rd hour for upperclassmen trying out for a spot on JV/Varsity.
4.  Check calendar for update open gym and tryout times.  
Health and well being is most important at this time and we want everyone to stay healthy and mindful. 
Please feel free to email me any questions you may haveCoach Molly West

Mission & Vision

Desert Vista is a recognized and well respected volleyball program in the state of Arizona. The success of our program is a direct reflection of the hard work our players put in during the season as well as in the off season. You can expect success that is measured beyond the win-loss record. Success is within the journey as much as it is about reaching the destination. Our success is about uniting a group of individuals to pursue a common goal and overcoming individual differences in order for the team to achieve its potential. Success of the athlete excelling on a personal level on the court as well as off the court by being a part of something bigger than the individual. Our success is about teaching life skills through sports that are necessary to be a winner. The expectations are high for Desert Vista volleyball players. Being on the Desert Vista Volleyball team is a commitment to hard work and dedication that requires the selection of athletes who "bring something special to the court and their team".
