2023-24 Season Tryout Membership  

ALL players will need to initially purchase a $15 TRYOUT membership for the 2023-24 season. USA Volleyball and Palmetto Region use the registration program through SportsEngine.


  1. When creating a new SportsEngine account, the primary account holder MUST be a parent/guardian.
  2. When you purchase the tryout membership, it is critical you choose to purchase the membership "for your child" and not yourself.
  3. Use a non-work email address when setting up your SportsEngine account. Many use Gmail, Yahoo, etc. to create a specific email account for everything volleyball.
  4. If you had a SportsEngine account in the past, please use the same account. Creating a new account will cause duplicate entry in the system and additional work.
  5. If parent or child had a USAV membership in the past, make sure you use the same name as your membership.
  6. If spouse desires a SportsEngine account, they will need to create one separately and it would be used for information only. Only one parent/guardian can be used to manage a child's account.


If you are new to SportsEngine, when you purchase a membership you will create a new account at that time.  You don't have to create an account ahead of time.  


All players trying out for a travel/club team will need to initially purchase a $15 tryout membership for the 2023-24 season.  Even if you know the club/team you are joining, you will still need to purchase the tryout membership first and then upgrade to a full membership later.

Initially you will purchase a "Tryout" membership for your child to participate in club tryouts. 

To purchase a 12U-18U tryout membership, Click here.


If you/your child is planning to try out for multiple clubs, you must fill out the required form below. This form does NOT register you with a specific club, you need to also contact the club to register with them.

After you/your child commits to a club, you are required to email the other clubs within 1 hour and notify them of your decision. If you are trying out for an out-of-region club, provide the name of the club. 


AFTER tryouts, if a club makes you a team offer, you will receive two emails:

  1. An invitation to join a club (you may receive more than one of these, from multiple clubs) and
  2. A club assignment request from the club director. You must accept this request in order to affiliate yourself with that club. Do not accept the club assignment request if not playing with that club for this season. Accepting a club assignment request is equivalent to a virtual handshake or contract signing. 

Click here for an explanation of the differences between the email invitation and assignment request.

To accept the club assignment, you will need to log into your SportsEngine account. There you will accept the club assignment and then walk through the steps to upgrade from "tryout" to "full" membership. The cost to upgrade is $40.

NOTE CHECKOUT: This is different than in the past.

When you get to the checkout page, you will see two "transactions" that equal the total membership price. One transaction represents the fees going to the Palmetto Region and the other represents the fees going to USAV.
