Youth Volleyball

Register Now

For Ages 8 to 16

YMCA Youth Volleyball leagues and clinics emphasize skill development and good sportsmanship. Our Youth Volleyball leagues and 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.

Health and Wellness

Our program provides a nurturing environment for children to explore new skills, foster teamwork, and build connections with positive role models, offering them a healthy and safe outlet for growth and development. In consideration of the safety of others, we kindly request that if you or anyone in your household is feeling unwell, please stay home during youth sports events.

How Teams are Created

  1. Coach Request: We start by reviewing coach requests, taking into account any specific coach preferences that participants may have.
  2. Friend Request: Next, we consider friend requests. If your child wants to be on the same team as a friend, we make every effort to accommodate this request.
  3. Age and Skill Level: To create balanced teams, we also factor in age and skill levels. We aim to distribute participants of varying ages and skill levels across teams, promoting fair competition and a supportive environment.
  4. Practice Day: Additionally, we consider practice days when assigning teams. Our goal is to ensure that teams can practice together conveniently.

By integrating these steps, we strive to create teams that not only honor preferences but also provide an inclusive and well-matched experience for each participant.
