On Wednesday, June 7th PBR of South Carolina hosted trials for Team Carolina at The College of Charleston in Charleston, SC. The Team Carolina Trials leads to identifying prospects for some of the summer’s biggest invite only events like PBR Southeast Senior Games, Top Prospect Games, PBR JR Future Games and the PBR Future Games.
