Update on 2021-2022 Tryouts

 

The Carolina Region, our sport's national governing body, has opted to step aside in determining a region-wide tryout schedule which has historically avoided any tryout conflicts and overlap with the traditional fall high school season. To learn more about the Region's decision click this link: https://www.carolinaregionvb.org/crboardtryoutcommentary/

So, with the region decision, decision of other area clubs, and our strong desire to not put kids in an untenable situation where there is one tryout in August which will come with pressure to commit or decline and other tryouts in the late Fall, we have made the tough decision to alter our tryout schedule (15-18u teams) for the 2022 club season. Despite the tryouts happening earlier, what will not change is that our tryouts will remain open and fair. (We are a part of the Carolina Region "Fair Tryout Pledge"). 

 

This will not change our desire/plan to hold our Fall Rec League and practices starting after the end of the school season. We feel the school season is important and should be enjoyed! Practice for club season WILL NOT begin until November. 

See below for dates and times for the 15-18u teams. These will be closed tryouts.

Tryouts for 12-14u will be held in late October. Please check back for dates and times soon.
