Special Message: In light of the surging cases of Covid 19 cases in our region, we are re-scheduling the Girls Volleyball Assessments to the first week in January, 2021. Please see dates and times listed below.
As a church, we highly value family time. Therefore we believe by limiting in-person gatherings we are giving people in our community the best chance to spend time with their families for the upcoming holidays. The schedule will be posted below.
This league will play in a three division format, breaking up the players by grade and ability. It is designed for girls in grades 4, 5 and 6 with beginner through advanced skill levels. Players of any skill set, beginner through advanced are welcome. Skill assessments for registered girls are held in late November, early December, and practices beginning in January with the season ending in March each year. Registration normally begins in late October, or early November.
Skills that will be taught include serving, serve reception, setting, passing, blocking, and transitioning. The adapted net height and the use of USVA certified Volley Lite volleyballs ensure personal success. Each team consists of a roster of 9 players and two coaches. There are 8 games with practices once a week.
