Charleston Academy Announces Tryout Dates

Charleston, SC – Charleston Academy today announced tryout dates for the 2019 Season.  The 14U & Younger will be October 27 & 28, 2018 and the 15U & Older will be November 10 & 11, 2018.  The dates were selected as to not conflict with other club tryout dates in order to provide players and parents ample time between tryouts for all clubs, have adequate time to drive between tryouts, have enough rest between tryouts to perform their best and time to consider all options without being pressured to do so before the Palmetto Region tryout period ends.  The tryouts are also over two days some players have the best opportunity to showcase their ability and commitment.

Charleston Academy will announce the location of tryouts, its fall training facility and its new multi-sport facility currently being designed in September.

“There is typically a lot of stress and confusion during the tryout period due to the congestion of club tryouts typically in one weekend and pressure to make quick decisions.  This doesn’t have to be the case and we are making sure players and parents have the time, rest and critical information about the Palmetto Regions tryout policies and signing period so they can have a great tryout experience and make the best decision possible about where they want to play in 2019.  We are very excited to provide a unique community membership to register for tryouts that provide much more than just the normal ‘fee for tryout’ that has been the norm in the past,” said Jaime Shamis, Charleston Academy Club Director.

The club tryout page has specific information on what is required to tryout for one or multiple clubs as well as the Palmetto Region’s Tryout Policies.  Charleston Academy will communicate regularly with the volleyball community via social media with information players and parents need to know about the Palmetto Region Open Tryout and Singing Period.

Players wishing to tryout for Charleston Academy can register to do so through the new Charleston Academy Bronze Membership.
