San Ramon Valley High School - Athletic Team Tryout Policy
The SRV High School Athletic Department is sensitive to the needs of all student-athletes
during the tryout period. It is SRV’s desire to see that as many student-athletes as possible
are involved in the athletic programs throughout the school year. Unfortunately, due to
limitations in team size for certain sports, cuts must be made to accommodate team needs.
Cross Country, Football, Wrestling and Track and Field are no cut sports.
Tryouts are open to all eligible students. Students must have a 2.00 gpa, a clearance slip on file, and must be approved by the North Coast Section  if they are a transfer student. (all transfer students are required to meet with the athletic director upon their enrollment at SRV.
The actual tryout period is a three day period. Coaches gather as much information on each player as possible. Each player will be assessed in  primary areas:
Overall athletic ability (i.e. speed, quickness, endurance, agility)
Sport specific skills
Role feasibility
Overall tryout ranking / per position ranking
NOTE: Past and current school year inappropriate classroom/school behavior, violating school discipline policy, and poor school attendance can preclude a student from being selected on any athletic team.  Participation in SRV sports is a privilege. Please note, all students must complete their season of sport before trying out for another team.
Tryout Procedures
Choosing the members of the various athletic teams is the responsibility of the coach.
Before tryouts begin, coaches will provide team information to all candidates as well as
the parents or guardians. This is done at an informational meeting for students. Such information will include:
 Length of tryout period – minimum of three days
 Objectives used to select the members of the team
 Approximate Number of team members who will be selected
 Criteria (rubric) involved in selection of team members
 Distribution of practice and competition schedule
 Explanation of commitment necessary to be a member of the team
Clear notification that tryouts are based on performance during the selection
period. Tryouts are not based on summer participation, coaching camps, or outside team affiliation in which the student-athletes participated prior to team selections.
Head coaches will be involved in sub-varsity selections.Students that have an interest in trying out for a two sports during the same season are required to contact the varsity coach to see if this is possible. This can only occur if tryout schedules do not conflict or if a student chooses to forgo a tryout day.
If an athlete is not selected, the coach will inform the student of the reason(s) for the cut
and the student may request a meeting to review their tryout rubric.
Once an athlete competes in a sanctioned game or contest, the athlete cannot leave a team to join another team, in that same sport season; the student must wait until that team has completed its regular season. This includes being dismissed from a team for any reason.
