Our Tryout Process

Tryouts can be stressful for many, so we strive to continue to improve our process.  At the end of the day, you must TRUST our system and our coaches to make the correct decisions. Any player can play up, but not down. Players must tryout in their age group. Any player that comes to the wrong session will have to wait until their session begins. Please note USAV Age Definitions posted above. If you played up last year, you still have to try out with your age division. Absolutely, no exceptions, so please don't ask!! And yes, both try-out sessions if offered should be attended if you want a fair evaluation.  At Islanders, this is what we have always said when asked about leaving early to get to another tryout ..." if we are your FIRST Club Choice, then we recommend staying at our tryout the longest to get the fairest evaluation, if not then feel free to leave when you feel necessary to get to your club of choice."  Please understand, we are not looking to just fill a roster, we are looking for serious athletes who are committed, want to work hard and to take their game to another level.  We also do not drag out offers, offers could be given before your daughter leaves the first tryout.  There is something to be said about knowing exactly who is on your team when getting an offer and to ask the coach any questions you want before leaving the tryout.     

We ask that you arrive no more than 20 minutes before your scheduled try-out session with all the proper paperwork documents needed to complete the registration process. Players should be dressed and ready to play at the start time of each scheduled tryout session. Please double check to make sure that you have all of the following paperwork documents ready to submit upon trying out for Carolina Islanders.
