Hilton Hotels

Athletes, coaches, friends, and family can save on their next stay at any of the 3,900 hotels within the Hilton HHonors portfolio of brands and help support USA Volleyball by staying with Hilton. To get the discount and help USAV, book your rooms via this website.

Please note the discounted rate is not always available; it depends on the hotel, dates, and availability. So book early. The discounted Hilton rate is typically less than AAA or AARP discounted rates. This Hilton discount program does not replace any “Stay to Play” housing requirements for certain USAV events.

Sign up for Newsletter for info

When the region sends out important information, we use two sources:

(1)  People who have registered with Palmetto Region USAV.  When players sign up, we require that you put the PARENTS email address in membership, NOT the players.  Often the player will type in their email address, then important news never gets to the parent.

(2) We also have a newsletter that anyone can sign up for to receive news from region.   This is handled by constant contact and must enter email address under NEWSLETTER SIGNUP to get info.

New Parent Membership

USAV and Palmetto Region now requires for insurance purposes all adults/parents who assist a team in any function ( warmups, scorekeeping,line judge, Down or Up ref) needs to be a USAV member.

Palmetto Region has created a DISCOUNTED PARENT MEMBERSHIP.   Normal memberships are $50, plus a $20 background check ( due once every 2 yrs). Parents willing to help their daughter’s team will only be charged $25, plus background check.

NET COST IS ONLY $10 bucks or LESS!!!!   Since parent now will be listed on the official roster,  you will get into tournaments that charge an entry fee for FREE.  This would include in Region the (1) Charleston Tournament Jan 5-6th and (2) Regional Championships in Charlotte.   Also, if team attends any national type tournament, most allow up to 5 adult staff in free listed on roster.  This could easily save you enough for $25 membership fee and BG fee check.

We hope parents will help their daughter’s team and pass online training as a line judge, scorekeeper, or Up/Down Ref.
