Our co-ed volleyball program began in 2004 with the goal of creating a recreational volleyball league for kids to learn the game of volleyball, be part of a team and have fun. We do not focus on wins and losses, so the kids are free to have a good time with no stress or pressure to perform. We started with one session and 150 kids. We now have 600 to 700 kids playing annually in our Spring, Summer & Fall team programs. We also offer a Skills n Drills clinic which runs November thru March.
Current volleyball opportunities are:
Fall league is open to all skill levels for grades 5 -12, and is co-ed. Kids come ready to play (knee pads suggested), warm up, are taught skills and do drills for the first half hour, then play games for the next half hour. Coaches and assistant coaches are needed for each team so please consider volunteering. If volunteering, experience is helpful but not necessary. Coaches clinic teaches you what you need to know and is held at the beginning of each season. Weekly rotating schedule of play against other teams, no pressure, a lot of FUN! Please keep in mind the schedule is determined by how many teams are registered There are three courts so 6 teams can play at once. If we have more than 6 teams, we have two time slots that get auto filled by a computer program. If we have more than 12 teams, we have three time slots. Playoffs only in Division 3 at the end of the season.

If you enjoy volleyball or have kids who do, coaching or being an assistant coach is a great opportunity to be involved with them and give back to the community. The commitment is just one night a week for 8 weeks. Our league keeps growing and we need people to help us keep growing. Volunteers are the lifeblood of every good organization and our program has been incredibly successful because of the willingness of parents to get involved. Jump onto the court as a volunteer coach, assistant coach or offer up your area of expertise. Keeping our website current with info, taking care of the end of season celebration, helping put teams together…we can always use another set of hands to help.
Kids benefit by seeing us teaching, leading and mentoring in the world of sport.
Please consider volunteering...it’s only one night a week for 8 weeks and it’s a blast!
