New Rule for 2019
13's to 16's are our largest groups. With more athletes trying out each year we want to find a way to make it more manageable. We decided to split them up into two separate level-groups, National and Regional+. You could choose to try out either National teams(Diamond/Crystal/Jade) or Regional+ teams(Pearl/Ruby/Sapphire/Onyx), or both, which three registrations are seperate(see above). This change will allow:
• Smaller coach to athlete ratio for more comprehensive evaluation
• Increased reps for athlete to show off her skill set
• Ability to make team decisions faster which means wait times for offers to go out will significantly decrease

2. Attend tryout sessions(required)
   • Should plan to attend all 2 sessions. If not, indicate on registration
   • Check-in begins 30 min. prior to tryout time. Please arrive early for preparation needed (check-in/assigned tryout #/photo taken)
   • Always be positive and confident on the courts

3. Evaluation & Team Selection
   • We will hold internal discussion with our coaching staff and management
   • We look at: SKILL; ATTITUDE; POTENTIAL
   • We then determine team selection and make offers by the level of team. It is important to attend the first sessions if you target on the national teams.
   • We do our best to move forward as fast as possible

4. Offer Notification
   • No offers will be made before tryouts, at tryouts, or on the courts
   • We will only make 10-11 offers per team at a time
   • We will contact parents(NOT players) to extend the offer via phone, text messaging, and/or email
   • We will update parents via emails and club website of all offer-making developments
   • Our goal is to release all offers by 9P, the day after the last tryout session of that age group
   • Be patient if you do not receive our offers since there are still opportunities to be a part of the Academy family

5. Your Decisions
   • Be aware of your rights defined by Carolina Region
   • Be aware of the NEW Signing Dates defined by Carolina Region: Oct 26 @ 6PM (12-14's) & Nov 9 @ 6PM(15-18's)
   • Find/choose your best fit
   • Please let us know your decision on our offer as soon as you decide since there are many players on the waiting list
   • If you accept our offer verbally or via texting/emails, it becomes a binding commitment

6. Signing Paperwork
   • Once you accept our offer, you will receive the signing paperwork via emails
   • As soon as you finish the paperwork, please turn it in with the first payment and meanwhile do uniform fitting (check Calendar for dates/times)
