The Spring Volleyball League is for all skill levels for boys and girls, ages 11 - 15 (essentially grades 5th - 9th) with co-ed divisions.
This League will prove to be an excellent way to introduce players to the sport of volleyball and hone existing skills for those with experience, too.  The environment will be one of encouragement and fun! 

In addition to learning skills in a positive atmosphere, a focus on teaching life-skills and virtues to the participants will also be included.  We believe sports offer a tremendous and natural way to connect with youth and provide an opportunity to teach skills and build positive character traits both on and off the court.

2018 Spring League Details:

Ages 11 - 15 with co-ed divisions (essentially 5th - 9th grades yet see the Registration & Division Info section below for specific age-range criteria)

All registered players are required to attend one of the Mandatory Skills Days, scheduled for Tuesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 8 (players are assigned a day/time).   

Players will be notified prior to Skills Day of their night and time-slot for when to arrive for their skill assessment. These assessments aid in creating as equal as possible teams; they are not try-outs but do remain mandatory for all players to attend. 

Teams will practice one weeknight. Practices will be on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, and once a team is assigned a practice night, it will remain consistent throughout the season. Practice start times typically range from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Practices are 75 minutes in length each week.

Games will be on Friday nights and Saturdays (ranging from late morning to mid-afternoon, possible morning games on a couple weekends).  Game schedules will be released the first week of practices. Game-times typically range from 5:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. on Friday evenings and from 11:30am to 1:30pm on Saturdays (with some exceptions); however, the official schedule is released once the league is formed. Games are about an hour in length each week.
