Please visit our Online Registration page for information and links to register with the Carolina Region. Our membership year begins September 1 and ends August 31 of the following year. Team/Club Reps may download the registration packet at our Forms section after September 1 each season.
For the 2022 membership season, the Carolina Region membership fee for all Boys 18 and younger will be $20 (this is a full USAV membership). We want to provide incentives to clubs and parents to introduce volleyball to more boys as an exciting lifetime sport option. We are encouraging clubs to think outside the box where boys volleyball is concerned. Clubs do not need to structure boys volleyball the same as they would a girls club. Form developmental leagues on weeknights for practices and fun games. Hold clinics and play days to introduce the sport to more boys. The goal is for clubs to start reaching out to boys and get them involved in the sport. Once we get them hooked, then clubs can form some teams and we can begin offering boys-only volleyball tournaments. See the articles below for more information on Boys volleyball.

As a service to our Boys members, we will post tryout information for clubs/teams that provide the information to the Region Office. All clubs and individuals should refer to our Recruiting Statement for information on acceptable ways to promote your tryouts and the behavior that is expected from our participants. Boys clubs may hold their 2021 Season Tryouts any time after September 1, 2020.

Ideas for Creating a Successful Boys Program:
- Offer multiple shorter seasons (fall, winter, spring, summer) rather than one traditional year-round club offering.
- Offer training only programs (no weekend tournament commitments)
- Include boys in all club communications
