2020-21 Tryouts

A note about the 2020-21 Club Season:
This season will be unlike any other, due to the uncertainty and unknown that the COVID-19 pandemic has created. We are still planning to have a club season, and are working on details including tryout dates and times, team offerings, tournament schedules, team costs, COVID protocols, etc. There are a lot of questions that we don't have answers to right now, and we appreciate everyone's patience and understanding. We will continue to keep these primary goals at the forefront of all we do: the safety of participants, offering a variety of team levels/schedules to fit all family's needs, and communicating quickly and efficiently when changes happen (and they will happen!). Please stay tuned to our website and social media accounts for updates. Please note that all season information is tentative, and dependent on regional, USAV, federal, state, and local guidelines and laws.

Please read our Tryout FAQ before registering for Carolina One.

Please read our 
C1VB Tryout Procedures to understand how tryouts will be run this year with COVID modifications.

Please note USAV Age Definitions have changed for the 2020-21 season. Please double check the linked chart above and let us know if you have any questions. Those born in July and August are impacted by the USAV Age Definition changes.

2020-21 Tryout Dates


We request that players attend BOTH tryouts for their age group. If you cannot attend a tryout, please notify us prior to tryouts. In most cases, we do allow players to tryout with alternate age groups. Tryout dates will be provided as gym schedules are finalized. Please check back on this page for final dates and times.

Please note that In-House program does NOT have tryouts, but does have an evaluation day so that we can determine the number of players in the programs and the proper team divisions. More information is available on the In-House League page.

*A note about makeup tryouts: We provide a makeup tryout time for players who are unable to attend our regularly scheduled tryout dates. However, we typically do begin forming teams prior to makeup tryouts. This means that we cannot guarantee a spot for any player who attends makeup tryouts. If Carolina One is your first choice, we recommend prioritizing our regularly scheduled tryout dates.

^We understand that the Greenville County MS championship is scheduled for Saturday, 10/24. For those 14U athletes who are unable to attend tryouts that day, we are offering a makeup session on Sunday, 10/25 from 5-6pm. We encourage you to attend this session so that we can complete skills evaluation before you participate in the second session of tryouts on 10/25.

2020-21 Palmetto Region Tryout Policy

The Palmetto Region has instituted an "Open tryout period" policy, which applies to all clubs in the Region.

The "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:

  • If the Club offers tryouts after the deadlines below these rules do not apply.
  • Teams/clubs may extend offers to players, but can not require commitment until signing date deadline. Once offer is made, may not be rescinded by the club until end of open tryout period or until player has communicated in writing acceptance or declined offer.
  • Players have until signing date to make a decision, however, players may accept an offer at anytime during the “open tryout period”. After your decision, you are required to notify all clubs that you participated in a tryout within 1 hrs of your decision.  Failure to do so can result in suspension and/or fine. If you’ve received team offers from all clubs after all your tryouts, your decision should be made within 48 hours of your last offer (if 48 hours falls before the end of the “open tryout period”) to help move the process on for other families and assist Club Directors on managing team needs.
  • Clubs are required to make a players-parent contract available to both parties at time of tryouts for them to review.  This should be signed by all parties within 48 hrs of a commitment. Both parties are responsible for keeping a copy of this in the event of dispute during the season.  Appeals will not be considered without signed contracts.
  • Club offers and communication of acceptance or decline from players must be dated and in writing, via verifiable electronic communication (e.g. email ,website database,etc). This will be required in event of dispute or complaint. 
  • If a player does not provide response to clubs by the deadline dates below, the club is NOT required to hold spot and these rules will not apply.
  • Clubs who extend a greater number of offers than there are open positions on a team, and subsequently indicating that those limited number of open positions will be filled on a first- come-first-serve basis, is not in the spirit of this rule and is therefore a violation.
  • Upon conclusion of the “Open Tryout Period”, offers and commitments may take place with no expectation of a grace period or requirements of rules above.
  • Clubs who are found to be in violation may be subject to fines and/or sanction.
