Evaluations- All players will be evaluated on the evaluation dates. They will be placed on teams according to their skill level. Please choose which date you wish to attend when registering. This will help us with knowing how many coaches are needed on those days.

What to expect-Each week we will advance the fundamentals and team aspects of our training. Our goal is to get each team to understand base, rotations, and defensive to offensive transition, all while incorporating three contacts.
Our leagues are unique in that the style of teaching and training may vary from other leagues your child has participated in. We have found our style teaches and encourages the three contact concept more quickly and helps in the development of the game concept for younger ages. While in the older ages the players are challenged with offensive and defensive strategies and decision making in all situations.
Practices-There will be one practice per week. Each will last 1 hr and 45 min.
Choosing to Play with Friends or by Skill Level-On your evaluation card you will be allowed to select your friends. Please be advised if you select to be with your friend(s) and your friend is a lower skill level than yourself you will be placed on a lower skilled team. It is not fair for us to place a lower skill player on a higher level team if they are not ready physically for the demands of those skills needed. We ask that you repeat your friends names on your evaluation card if you wish to be with your friends over skill level. If you choose skill over friends that will trump the choice of friends. If your friends are at your skill level, you will be fine.
Tournament Play-Teams in each league will compete in three tournaments. This gives players an opportunity to work on the team aspects they’ve learned and put them into real game situations. Rules can be modified to help generate success and confidence at the different age levels.
There will be 6-9 players per team, and coaches will be provided. This league is a great way for both the newest player in volleyball and the player who is already playing in rec, pro or on a school team to advance their level of play
