Winter Clinic held by CP Volleyball Coach Yunker - click link for more info: clinic
We want to continually improve the CDAA volleyball program so are working with neighboring volleyball programs to try to include experiences playing games against other associations. Potential cross-league play may include: Anoka/Ramsey, Andover and Rogers. Some games may be at schools in those communities.
Boys Programs being run at local Volleyball Clubs: Crossfire & MN Select! Go to their sites for more info:
- Crossfire: www.gocrossfire.org
MN Select: www.mnselect.com
CDAA Gym Locations:
- Rebels 1 & 2 or CBPA E & W are Champlin Brooklyn Park Academy
- Oxbow is Oxbow Creek Elementary
- Jax is Jackson Middle School
- Dayton is Dayton Elementary
- CPHS is Champlin Park HS
3rd & 4th Grades: Emphasis is placed on skill development, confidence building and learning how to play and have fun. Season starts the middle of September and runs through early November. The intent is to allow the players to gain experience in game situations and for the coaches to use the time as teaching opportunities. Games/practices will be two nights per week – will try to schedule 4th Grade mostly on Monday and Wednesday evenings & 3rd Grade mostly on Tuesday / Thursday - but will try to schedule around the Crossfire League (no guarantee - depends on gym availability and number of teams).
5th & 6th Grades: Emphasis is placed on a higher skill development and rules and regulations. No evaluations will be held – information on player experience will be requested at registration and will be used to even out teams. Depending on the numbers of girls that want to play, the two grades may be split into two leagues. Season starts the middle of September and runs through early November. Games/practices will be two nights per week; will try to schedule mostly on Tuesday / Thursday (no guarantee - depends on gym availability and number of teams).
7th & 8th Grades: Emphasis is placed on skill development and learning how to play and have fun. This level will also focus on adding multiple hits and on introducing and using in game situations more advanced skills. Season starts the middle of September and runs through early November. The intent is to allow the players to gain experience in game situations and for the coaches to use the time as teaching opportunities. Games/practices will be two nights per week – will try to schedule mostly on Monday / Wednesday evenings - but will try to schedule around the Crossfire League (no guarantee - depends on gym availability and number of teams).
**If 8th grade is a separate group from 7th, games/practices may be Sundays. Practices would be 2 hours and games would be double headers. If this is a problem, 8th graders can request to play with 7th.
9th - 12th Grades: Emphasis is placed on skill development and giving older players an opportunity to have fun and play competitively. Season starts the middle of September and runs through early November. Games/practices will be 1 night per week – will try to schedule mostly on Sunday afternoon & evenings but the End of Year Tournament could vary day of the week. The intent is to schedule 2 hour practices and double headers to allow for more time while only taking up one day of the week.
Team t-shirts are supplied (3rd-8th) / Volleyball jerseys are supplied for 9th-12th
Participants supply your own knee pads
A limited number of volleyballs will be supplied per team.
If you bring your own ball please remember to label it with your name!
If you are selected to coach a volleyball team please plan on attending a coaches meeting - specific time and location are TBD depending on when / where the coach’s hands-on clinic happens. (Usually a early September, Sunday afternoon/evening) Please make every effort to attend, as materials and rules will be handed out at that time as well as great instruction from experienced coaches.
The program cannot run without enough adults volunteering to coach. The focus is on learning and having fun so even inexperienced coaches will help the kids tremendously.
Example practice schedules can be provided to those that want them in addition to an explanation of different drills. Also, we will look to get High School volleyball player volunteers to come to practices to help out if coaches choose. Coaches can be paired or in 3’s to minimize the responsibility of any one person. Also, there will be a coach’s clinic the night of the coach’s meeting where you can learn drills hands-on.
Please consider signing up to help coach!
It is not about winning games, it is about the progress your team makes throughout the season and the confidence that is gained in the players. If your team is having fun and has improved, you have succeeded.
If you are on the fence, please consider signing up to coach. Feedback from coaches is that the experience is wonderful. Almost all coaches come back the next season because they had such a great experience.
If you have any questions please email: Volleyball@CDAASports.org

We do try to honor player requests for a coach or another player but our main goal is to keep our teams as evenly matched as possible to make it fun for all our participants. As a result, we cannot guarantee we will honor player or coach requests. Players have more fun playing with their friends, but no one has fun when games aren’t competitive. However, because coaches invest a lot of time into the program, coach requests will be given first priority as long as the requests fall in line with the goal of evening out the teams.
Nights of Play
Until gym time is confirmed, the following can change. Also, there will be slight variations due to scheduling conflicts. However, in creating schedules for the season, the plan is to have Grades 3 & 5/6 play T / Th nights between 6:15pm – 9:15pm and to have Grades 4, 7/8 play M / W nights between 6:15 – 9:15 pm. Finally, the plan is to have Grades 9-12 play Sunday afternoon / evenings. Again, there is no guarantee on these nights of play.
If 8th grade is a separate group from 7th, games/practices may be Sundays. Practices would be 2 hours and games would be double headers. If this is a problem, 8th graders can request to play with 7th.
Program fees will be $85.00 per participant for 2016.

HS Students Reffing / Volunteering
We will hire volleyball referees for all games in 2016. Please email the director with your interest in reffing Volleyball@CDAASports.org. Please include your name, contact number, grade, experience and conflict dates for Sept - Oct.
We are looking for experienced volleyball players grades 9 and up to volunteer to help out at practices for grades 3-8. Many of the coaches are parents that do not have volleyball experience.
This program was tried out in previous seasons and the feedback from coaches / players was very positive. Coaches can sign volunteer hour sheets for the time you put in. Great opportunity to fulfill hours for Government and NHS.
Thank you for helping make this program a success.
