Our Volleyball leagues will be organized by grade level

** Depending on registration numbers, leagues may be formed using individual grade levels.
 
3rd & 4th Grades:    Emphasis is placed on skill development, confidence building and learning how to play and have fun. Season starts at the end of September and runs through the middle of 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 and Wednesday evenings (no guarantee).

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.  The Season starts at the end of September and runs through the middle of November. Games/practices will be two nights per week – will try to schedule mostly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (no guarantee).

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 at the end of September and runs through the middle of 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 Tuesday and Thursday evenings (no guarantee).

**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 at the end of September and runs through the middle of November. Games/practices will be 1 night per week – will try to schedule mostly on Sunday afternoon & evenings (no guarantee). 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.


Game Equipment


Team t-shirts and socks 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!


Coaches

Coaches Meeting

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 mid September, Sunday afternoon) Please make every effort to attend, as materials and rules will be handed out at that time.

Volunteers:
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

Online Registration for the Fall season starts May 15th and ends August 5th (11:59 pm).  Late registration (IF SPACE IS AVAILABLE) will be accepted through August 18th, with a $25.00 Late Fee (see next note about 9th-12th league).

Registration deadline for the 9th through 12th grade program is subject to change depending on the High School try out dates (and the late fee is waived).

A credit card WILL be required to complete all registrations online.  

Please make every effort to register on time as late registrations make it hard to finalize teams, order uniforms, and finalize the gym time / practice time & game schedules.

Walk-in Registration

NO walk-in registration sessions will be held. If you cannot register online please contact the Volleyball Directors (email Volleyball@CDAASports.org)

Back to Top

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 5/6 & 7/8 play T / Th nights between 6:15pm – 9:15pm and to have Grades 3/4 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.

Fees

Program fees will be $85.00 per participant for 2014.

HS Students Reffing / Volunteering

We will hire volleyball referees for all games in 2014. Please email the director with your interest in reffing  Volleyball@CDAASports.org.   Please include your name, contact number, grade, experience and conflict dates for October-Nov 8th.

Volunteers

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. 

Thank you for helping make this program a success.

Thank you,
Katie & Michelle
