Youth Sand (7-11 years/2nd-5th grade)


June 6, 2022 - July 21, 2022
7 - 11

Overview

  • Age Eligibility
    • The youth league is for ages 7-11, or those who will be going in to 2nd-5th grade in the fall.
  • 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
    • With the sand volleyball program being held outdoors, practices take place at local parks and school sand courts or open grass area. The volunteer coach of your player’s team will choose what day, time and location for practices and will communicate that information to the team before the beginning of practices. In divisions that are smaller, teams may be made from multiple schools, so practices may be a little further from where you are located.
      • Youth league teams practice once a week for an hour.
  • Equipment
    • Players will be responsible for bringing a volleyball to practice.
      • All sand league players will use a regulation sand volleyball.
    • Players will wear athletic clothing that they can easily move around and be active in.
    • Shoes are not recommended on sand courts, but socks can be worn to protect against hot sand.
