Youth Volleyball

YMCA Youth Volleyball leagues & clinics emphasize skill development and good sportsmanship. Our Youth Volleyball leagues & clinics are recreational and teach kids volleyball basics, like setting, bumping and serving. 

YMCA youth sports encourage and promote healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others. 

  • Divisions 8-10 & 11-14

Parents are encouraged to be more than mere spectators. In fact, parents are crucial to a successful sports season by contributing their time as volunteer coaches - as well as being their kid’s greatest fan. Learn more about volunteering as a youth sports coach here.

SPRING GAME LOCATIONS

The YMCA of Austin has a responsibility to our community to serve youth and their families through positive experiences that teach them the value of community togetherness. 

YMCA of Austin youth sports will focus on the development of the whole child through age-appropriate & character-based curriculum, delivered in a judgement-free environment that allows participants to learn, develop, and be filled with joy. 

These recreational youth development programs will produce memorable game-day experiences.

Through purposeful training of staff and volunteers, targeted marketing, and clear communication, the YMCA of Austin can fill the gap in our community and provide non-competitive youth sports leagues, so that young people may:

  • Develop youth sports skills & grow into well-rounded athletes and people;
  • Realize their potential as active, engaged, and thriving global thinkers; 
  • Participate in YMCA youth sports for three or more seasons and who will enroll in other Y youth programs.
  • Players will practice for one-hour each week. 
  • Games are played within a one-hour period. 
  • Teams are coached by volunteers - who must pass background check, complete child sexual abuse prevention training, and attend pre-season coaches training. 
  • Jerseys are provided for each participant prior. Players are responsible for shorts or pants, necessary protective gear, and athletic shoes. 
  • Ball Sizes: 8-10 uses Volley Lite & 11-14 uses Regulation ball
