Announces its 2020 Season Tryout Dates

Charleston, SC – today announced tryout dates for the 2020 Season.  The 14U & Younger will be October 19 and the 15U & Older will be November 9, 2018.  Both dates will be at Park West Recreation Center. Registrants should be aware that dates, times and location are subject to change by the Palmetto Volleyball Association (PVA) region policies.

“The last two years, tryout dates have been pushed back due to hurricanes which delayed high school playoffs for many players which prevented them from trying out. Parents and players should monitor dates of clubs they want to try out for,” said Club Director Jaime Shamis.

“Also, we can’t stress enough our club is for players who want to get to the next level and play in college. We have assembled a staff with experience second to none who have coached at the international, national team (men’s, women’s and youth), collegiate (having won NCAA Division I championships) and USAV Youth Open National Championships so we know what it takes to get to the next level. This means we play as many Open National Qualifiers as possible, train at the highest level possible every chance we get and set a very high standard for our players to compete against each other daily for playing time (we DO NOT guarantee playing time). This is not for everyone, but for those willing to make the same level of commitment that other national level club’s players are doing” said Shamis.

The club tryout page has specific information on what is required to tryout for one or multiple clubs as well as the PVA’s Tryout Policies. 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 Signing Period. More information will follow subject to the annual PVA meeting on August 18.
