FAQs

How old does my child have to be to play volleyball?
To be eligible, a player must be 6 and in 1st grade by September 30.

Is my child able to "play up" to the next level?
If the upper division has openings and the player has the necessary skills, a parent may sign a waiver to allow the child to play at the upper division.

When and where are practices?
Each team practices two weeknights at local elementary school gyms. The practice nights are the coach's choice since he or she is volunteering.

Am I able to make special requests for coaches, teams, or players?
During the registration process, there are options to request a specific coach/team/player with whom you would like your child paired. A special requests option also allows you to list any days that your child would be unavailable for practices.

How is the registration fee used?
None of our coordinators or coaches are paid for their time. Registration fees are used for equipment, gym rental, jerseys, and game officials. 

What if I have other questions?

such as working with parents; motivating kids; building confidence;
instilling good sportsmanship; safety; and nutrition and hydration; among many other areas.

of the particular sport they are coaching, as well as effective drills to use during their practices.
