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:
WINTER SKILLS & DRILLS CLINICS
The goal of the clinics is to learn and practice skills and have as many touches on the ball as possible. They’re run by our league directors and assorted high school coaches and players. Clinics are held at Tohickon Middle school weekly on Tuesday nights with 3 sessions each Tuesday night starting November 6th and running through to the end of March:
Session 1: 5th-6th Grade from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.
Session 2: 7th-10th Grade from 7:30 to 8:30 pm.
Session 3: 9th-12th Grade open play from 8:30 to 9:30.
Clinics are Co-Ed. There’s a $5 drop in fee at the door each time you participate. If you’d like to attend, please register your child by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add you to the email distribution list. A weekly email is sent to the distribution list asking if your child is in or out for that week. Simply respond if they’re in and what division (grade level). If they’re not attending that week, no need to respond. It’s helpful to me if you’ve registered so I know how many to expect.

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.
As our program continues to grow, we are expanding our Board and are in need of volunteers to fill the following positions:
Website Coordinator- Volunteer needed to keep the website up to date with current information. Computer skills needed. Approximately 1-2 hours a week.
Advertising Coordinator- Volunteer needed to set up advertising in advance of each season with local newspapers, website updates and sign makers.
Interested? Please email me at email@example.com or cell: 267-614-3911 and we'll set up a meeting or phone conversation to discuss questions/comments etc.
