International Tryouts

International Tryout (player selection) dates for European and South American players who want to explore the opportunity to play in college in the United States are as follows:

  1. The European leg of the player selections will be November 26 through December 7.
  2. The South American leg of the player selections will be December 17-21 in Argentina.

The selection dates will be both open and invitational for girls for 14U to 16U.  USA Volleyball age groups are defined as:

  • 16U:  Born on or after Sept. 1, 2002
  • 15U:  Born on or after Sept. 1, 2003
  • 14U:  Born on or after Sept. 1, 2004

International players selected will join the Charleston Academy residential program and attend a mix of local and online schools while living the in the local community to learn more about the United States and how the college system works here.  They will train daily with the club and from January until July they will travel to tournaments based on our schedule.

As part of its international player selection process, Charleston Academy is using Instagram for international players to tag our Instagram account (@chas_academy) with video(s) of themselves playing for invitation to the tryouts.  This program will be promoted across Europe and South America through social media and the Charleston Academy staff’s international contacts.

We will provide more details on locations, times and processes later this month.
