Step 1: Make your first payment

First payments are due when you commit.  Returning parents know this, but first payments are CRITICAL fous to get into tournaments.   Thus, please take care of this as soon as you commit, but no later than November 17th.  IMPORTANT: Always obtain a receipt and keep it for your records. You may ask Plex to email you an electronic copy. You may also pay in person at Plex, or over the phone by calling 803-360-7300.  We offer discounts to pay in full. To see all payment breakdowns, click here.  

URGENT: We MUST have financial commitments for you to begin at SC Midlands.  If you will have an issue making the ENTIRE first payment, email Cynthia ASAP.  She will work with you. Uniforms also need to be paid, and ordered online.  We can modify first payments, if needed, but uniforms must be ordered and paid by the given deadlines.

Step 2: Verify USAV Membership  (and/or update club status to SC Midlands)

All members must now have USAV membership under SC Midlands.  
  • Click here if you need instructions on how to register for the first time (should have been done before tryouts).  
  • Click 
    here if you are already a member needing to 
    change your club status from "Undecided" to "SC Midlands".  
  • Email if you had registered under another club, but now plan to play for "SC Midlands".

Step 3: Attend Mandatory Uniform Sizing Drop-In Session

This year we are ordering new jerseys.  All players must come into get sized.  National teams will use the same 1/4 zip pullovers from last year, but National players must order NEW pants. Spandex, and practice t-shirts will be the same. Bags and warm-ups are required for National teams, but optional for others.  Again, pick one of these dates to come in and get sized:
      • Sat Nov 18        Cardinal Newman   2-5 PM
      • Sun Nov 19       Cardinal Newman   2-5 PM
      • Mon Nov 20      Plex Hi-Wire           6-8 PM
      • Tue Nov 21       Plex Hi-Wire           6-8 PM
Boys do not need to come in for sizing.  Sizes will be your regular jersey/shirt/short sizes. This year boys, however, will be required to buy a volleyball just like the rest of our players.

Step 4: Order Uniforms Online         

Once you come in for sizing, all uniforms will be ordered through our online store.  We will send an email when the store link goes live.  You will then have three days to order.  We will have STRICT deadlines for all orders.  IMPORTANT: Have funds readily available to pay for uniforms.  It is our goal that every single player order before the first deadline.

   An email will be sent once the link goes live.

Step 6: Check website in late November for the practice schedule TBA

We plan to release the practice schedule on or before November 29th.  We'll get it done as soon as we can, and then practices will begin the week of December 3rd.   Please be patient as we secure commitments, handle uniforms, as well as register for tournaments.  Again, we will get the practice schedule done as soon as we can.  Thank you.
