Extraordinary times requires extraordinary efforts, adaptability and resourcefulness. We've been working hard to create a Co-Ed Summer League for all ages and skill levels to be held outdoors at Fanny Chapman Swim Club. We need support and cooperation to keep everyone safe, healthy and comply with the CDC and Commonwealth of Pa's guidelines. While we were unable to have indoor seasons this past year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Summer program is outside and is ON! We hope to have a Fall indoor volleyball season, back inside the gyms. For now, we look forward to seeing you outside this Summer, on the court again, safely playing volleyball.

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, as well as our Skills n Drills clinics which runs November thru March.
We have 3 Divisions run by grade level/age. All divisions are co-ed. You do not have to be a resident of Central Bucks to register.
Division 1: 4th-6th Grades – Coordinator: Art Bass, firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a non-competitive, co-ed division with kids just starting out and kids with experience.
Division 2: 7th-8th Grades –Coordinator & League Director: Sherri Belfus Kracht, email@example.com– This is a non-competitive, co-ed division with a mixture of kids with experience and kids just learning the sport. At this level, they are learning the game so there’s more rallies, more ball skills and lots of kids serving overhand.
Division 3: 9th-12th Grades – Coordinator & League Director: Sherri Belfus Kracht, firstname.lastname@example.org. This division is more competitive with playoffs the last week of the season. Medals are awarded to the winning team. It's a mix of high school players, club players, intermediate players and some beginner players.

Enjoy volleyball? Coaching or being an assistant coach is a great chance to be involved with your kids and give back to the community. The commitment is just one night a week for 8 weeks. Volunteers are the lifeblood of every good organization and our program has been incredibly successful because of the willingness of people to get involved. Jump onto the court as a volunteer coach, assistant coach or offer up your area of expertise.
Kids benefit by seeing us teaching, leading and mentoring in the world of sport.
