Club Volleyball can be confusing at times. We highly recommend you educate yourself before you start.
In short, you must complete the below steps to participate in the Palmetto Region juniors program,
2- Clubs are independent from Palmetto Region and you must also contact the club your are interested in joining. That club will normally request information from you and probably need you to pay a tryout fee. The club director will be able to assist with questions.
3- We recommend you read the region info on Tryouts. This will help you understand what questions to ask your club(s) of interest.
USA Volleyball and Palmetto Region use the registration program through SportsEngine.
**MUST READ FOR PARENTS**
If you are new to SportsEngine, you will need to create a new account.
If you already have an account, you can skip this section and go to 'Purchasing Adult Membership.'
All players trying out for a travel/club team will need to initially purchase a $15 tryouts membership for the 2022-23 season. Even if you know the club/team you are joining, you will still need to purchase the tryout membership first and then upgrade later.
Initially you will purchase a "Tryout" membership for your child to participate in club tryouts.
Be sure to watch the video explaining how to purchase a membership - Click Here (3rd video).
