Our League adheres to the 12 and Under Special Rules as established by the Iowa Region and USA Volleyball.
We have the gym for 8 Sundays and in general, teams will play 7 out of 8 weeks with 1 bye week. On occasion, a team may get 2 bye weeks. The last week is reserved for a Madhatter style tournament where all teams participate.
January 17, 24, 31
February 7, 14, 21, 28
Mid-way through the season, we will try to "seed" teams based on level of play so that teams of similar caliber can continue competing for the last several weeks.
Cost is typically $300 or a little under.
STREAMING (From a parent)
Is your family new to volleyball? Are you questioning how all of this works, what the rules are and how to be involved so that you can be an active participant? Check out our new Parents section where you can get to know the game and the ins and outs of being a "Volleyball Parent".
We have a contest each year where players are asked to submit T-Shirt designs. The winning design is printed on a shirt that is given to each player on each team, including coaches.
See last year's winners below!
Reffing & Scoring
We appreciate standard scoring, but given the limited amount of time, we use a tick sheet and flip score. Makes it simple and avoids all unnecessary time delays you incur with errors at this age group. Reffing is the same as in USA Volleyball. An Up, Down, 2 line judges, and 1 at the score table.
COVID Update - Only a flip score will be used this year.
Setup / Tear Down
To help keeps costs low, we ask teams to help with setup and tear down and to make sure that their areas are as clean as when they arrive. On the schedule, teams will be assigned for each of these duties.
COVID Update - teams will not be asked to assist with setup or tear down.
Warm-up balls will be provided at the Junior High!
COVID Update - teams will need to bring their own warm-up balls.
We are not allowed to have concessions so please remind your parents to simply provide a healthy snack they can quickly eat between matches.
No popcorn please!
There are NO ADMISSIONS FEES!!!
