The Palmetto Region has instituted a "Decision Day" for each age group. NO tryouts, callbacks, or other activities are permitted on these dates. The "Decision Day" is the EARLIEST date a club can require a commitment from a player.
|Age Division||Beginning Date||End Date||Decision Day|
|14U or Younger||Saturday, Oct. 19th, 2019||Sunday, Oct. 27th, 2019||Monday, Oct. 28th, 6pm|
|15U or Older||Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019||Saturday, Nov. 16th, 2019||Sunday Nov. 17th, 6pm|
The Tryout Policy was implemented to reduce the stress on all involved. Parents and players are encouraged to do your research in advance on the clubs you plan to tryout with and narrow your decision down to 2-3 clubs. We recommend you also read the How to Compare a Club resource on the PVA website.
“Open Tryout Period” is defined as the block of days that players may tryout with no expectations of having to make a commitment to a team/club, nor can a team/club require a commitment from a player.
During this period:
Clubs within a 60 mile radius are requested to work with each other to avoid head to head conflicts on tryouts within the same age group. Players who find conflicts should contact the respective club directors for more information/alternative tryout options.
Any player who desires to try out for multiple clubs is required to notify each club by completing and remitting the PVA Multi Club Tryout Disclosure document PRIOR to attending tryouts.
What if I want to tryout for both 14u and under and 15U and above?
Clubs who have players who are trying out in both 14 & under and 15 & above age divisions are not required to hold a spot in the younger age division if the 15> older age division tryout dates is past the 14< signing date.
What constitutes a player commitment to a club?
A player & parent are considered committed to a club once they sign region commitment agreement, a club player-parent contract, or pay a initial fee payment (not tryout fee). Once one of the above is done, then the player is committed to that club for the season, unless the club releases them. Click here for entire rule.
