2024 Boys All-Star Information

2024 RMR Boys All-Star Information

This year’s All-Star Championships will be held in Des Moines, IA July 18-21.  

The RMR will host two teams
U19 (athletes born in 2006 or 2007)
U17 (athletes born in 2008 or 2009)
Unfortunately, the “birth year” requirements are absolute. (No “senior in High School” waivers) 

Tryouts for RMR Boys All-Star will be May 18th, 2024, at Panther Volleyball Club (7246 S Revere Pkwy, Centennial, CO 80112). We will offer two sessions. The skill session will run 9:00am-12:00pm.  Players will then have a 1.5 hour lunch break (they are responsible for their own lunch and are more than welcome to leave and go get something to eat).  The competition session will run from 1:30pm-3:30pm.  Players are expected to attend both sessions. Players will receive a t-shirt for tryouts with their tryout number on it.  The registration fee is $50. 

Regarding May 12th: We had hoped to offer a tryout immediately following the Colorado HS Association State Tournament. Our thinking was that this would allow greater opportunity to athletes who live outside the Denver metro area, but would be in-town for the CHSAA tourney. We’ve received quite a bit of direct feedback, though, from coaches and parents concerned that May 12th is Mothers’ Day. With that in mind, we’ve canceled the May 12 All- Star tryout date.→ Go spend time with your Mom!

Space at tryouts is limited. To ensure a quality experience for everyone, we will utilize a tryout invitation process. Eligible returning players from All-Star 23 will receive direct invitations from the RMR to attend the 24 tryouts. New players who would like to be considered for tryouts should BOTH 1) ask their club coach or director to nominate them HERE and 2) send a LINK to their highlight videos to AllStar@rmrvolleyball.org. If selected to tryout, you will receive an invitation with a link to register for the May 18th tryouts.  

Both our returning players, and the selected new tryout players must pre-register with the invitation link emailed to them by the RMR. Deadline to register is 5pm Friday May 17th.
