  • Team formation
    • Teams are formed by the Y and will initially be started 4 weeks before the beginning of the program. Players who register before the registration deadline will be placed on their current school team unless there are too few registered players. The following criteria will be used to form teams from players that register prior to the registration deadline:
      • Coach/Teammate Request
      • Grade
      • School
      • Coach Availability (If the guardian volunteers to coach)
      • Date of Registration
  • Practice Information
    • YMCA Youth Sports Leadership will work with schools to solidify practice locations, days and times. The volunteer coach of your player’s team will choose from what practice options are available. Practices will be located at a school or Y facility that is nearest where they team is located. In divisions that are smaller, teams may be made from multiple schools, so practices may be a little further from where you are located.
      • 6th/7th and 8th/9th grade teams practice once a week for an hour and when applicable teams will get one additional 1 hour practice a week
  • Equipment
    • Players will be responsible for bringing a volleyball to practice.
      • For 6th/7th and 8th/9th grade divisions players will use a regulation ball.
    • Players will wear athletic clothing that they can easily move around and be active in.
    • Athletic type shoes that are non-marking, as we don’t want to damage courts.
