The particular Palmetto FC team to which a potential player ends up being rostered will be determined during Select team tryouts which occur in May each year. Following tryout evaluation, if it is determined by PUFC and its Select Coaching Staff that a player's skill set and abilities are such that he or she will benefit from involvement in the Select Soccer program, the player will be offered a roster slot on a Palmetto United FC Select team, appropriate for the player's skill level, age and development needs. 

In that regard, PUFC and Select Coaching Staff will select the players they need to field the most competitive team in each age group and place the best 15-16 players on a the first team.  They will then select 15-16 players they need to field the next most competitive team in that same age group and place them on the second team.

Placement on a roster does not mean a player cannot move to a different level team, meaning a player may not always be slotted for a less competitive team over the course of his or her development in the program.  Our Select Program focuses on continued player development and team improvement when making team placement decisions.

All of our Select teams will  compete in several NC and SC select soccer tournaments, one of the statewide travel leagues, South Carolina State Challenge Soccer League or President's Medal Soccer League, and if they qualify for tournament play, the South Carolina  President's Medal  Cup. Regardless of a team's designated  level, the Executive Director, Director of Soccer and Select Coaching Staff will decide which statewide league will best serve the players' development. Decisions will be made on a team by team basis concerning in which particular league each team will participate.
