HOMESCHOOL GIRLS VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE

Teams are run on a pay-to-play basis.  The fees collected are used to pay for gym space, tournament and home game fees, refs, equipment, insurance, and coaches. Fees are determined based on number of games and tournaments level. Please see our registration page for more details.


 

ELEMENTARY 12U

 

This will be a brand new program starting in the 2021 season. We are hopeful that the elementary level will be for girls 12 years old and under. Volleyball fundamentals will be taught at the beginner level for passing, setting, and hitting (also known as spiking) as well as placement and rotations. Emphasis will be on creating trust and bonds as teammates on and off the court. Players will learn all volleyball rules and guidelines and try out each position. A well rounded volleyball player is the goal to advancing in this sport. This level will include a few games and possibly the State Tournament, but the elementary level is more about learning to have fun and falling in love with the sport. All team members are expected to act, react and address other teams in a mature manner remembering they are playing for the Glory of God.

Practices start August 2, 2021 12U will practice at the HSB, Inc. (5925 Burlingame Ave. GR)  Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30pm-6:30pm unless a game is scheduled. We ask that players arrive 10-15 minutes early to get shoes and kneepads on, bathroom break and help setup nets. There are 2-4 clubs close-by that have 12U teams we will try to schedule 4-6 games with. They will also get the opportunity to play in the State Homeschool Tournament in Mt. Pleasant October 23, 2021. Please keep close tabs on the calendar. If there are away games for the upper levels, there will be no practice for 12U.

MIDDLE SCHOOL 14U

 

The middle school level is for girls  14 years old and under. Volleyball fundamentals will be taught at a slightly higher level than beginner for passing, setting, and hitting (also known as spiking) as well as placement and rotations. Emphasis will be on creating trust and bonds as teammates on and off the court. Players will learn all volleyball rules and guidelines and try out each position, but may be placed in one based on skill and experience. A well rounded volleyball player is the goal to advancing in this sport. All team members are expected to act, react and address other teams in a mature manner remembering they are playing for the Glory of God.

Practices start August 2, 2021 14U will have practice Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 5:30pm-7:30pm unless a game is scheduled. We ask that players arrive 10-15 minutes early to get shoes and kneepads on, bathroom break and help setup nets. We plan to have 6-8 games for the season with other homeschool clubs, possibly a few local schools. The team will also get the opportunity to play at the Midwest Volleyball Classic in Ft. Wayne, Indiana October 8 and 9, 2021 and at the State Homeschool Tournament in Mt. Pleasant October 23 and 24, 2021. (in the past this was a 1 day tournament on Friday, last year because of covid it was two days.) Please keep close tabs on the calendar. If there are away games for the upper levels, there will be no practice for 14U.

JUNIOR VARSITY 16U

 

The junior varsity level is for girls 16 years of age and under. Volleyball fundamentals will be taught at the intermediate level for passing, setting, and hitting (also known as spiking) as well as touching base on placement and rotations. Emphasis will be on creating trust and bonds as teammates on and off the court. Players will hone in on skills previously learned, but with focus on a position or two they excel at. There will be a certain level of leadership expected at this level, with being a role model and "big sister" to the junior high players. Beginners are accepted and expected to work just as hard as returning players, there will be more one-on-one training for new players to help catch them up and not feel out of place. Each member of the JV team is expected to participate in all practices and games, in exception to sickness or family events. If an injury occurs, we still expect you to support your team at games as you are able. All team members are expected to act, react and address other teams in a mature manner remembering they are playing for the Glory of God.

Practices start August 2, 2021 JV will have practice Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 5:30pm-8:00pm unless a game is scheduled. We ask that players arrive 10-15 minutes early to get shoes and kneepads on, bathroom break and help setup nets. We plan to have 10-12 games for the season with other homeschool clubs, possibly a few local schools. The team will also get the opportunity to play at the Rivertown Christian Volleyball Tournament September 18, 2021, the Midwest Volleyball Classic in Ft. Wayne, Indiana October 8 and 9, 2021 and at the State Homeschool Tournament in Mt. Pleasant October 23 and 24, 2021. 

VARSITY 18U

 

The varsity level is for girls 18 years old and younger. Volleyball fundamentals should be established at this point, players will hone in on skills previously learned, but with focus on the position they excel at. There will be a high involvement of leadership expected at this level, with being a role model and "big sister" to the junior varsity and junior high players. Beginners are accepted and expected to work just as hard as returning players, there will be one-on-one training for new players as needed to help catch them up and not feel out of place. Individual training is available upon request. Each member of the varsity team is expected to participate in all practices and games, in exception to sickness or family events.
