The PALMETTO STATE programs are designed to teach new players (ages 12-Under) the fundamentals and skills needed to play volleyball. These programs are great starter programs for young players that are involved in multi-sports and do not want to commit to any one sport. This program was designed to teach the basics of the game (rules, rotations, footwork, etc) as well as to ensure proper skill training for the players. This program also offers 5 local tournaments so the player can refine the skills needed in a game scenario of competition. The Palmetto State teams practices one day a week (including tournament weeks) for two hours.

Team Signing Day

Players will have the opportunity to be fitted for their individual gear/uniform packages at Team Signing evening.  We do not ask that players be fitted for their uniforms at tryouts, because we feel the focus of tryouts should be to properly evaluate the player's skill level.   Uniform sizing is done after positions have been accepted and the teams come together to have team signing and team pictures.

Team Signing is November 15th at Bridgeway Christian Academy on Garlington Road.  Teams will come in waves ~ Palmetto State should be there at 6:15.
