RECREATIONAL GIRLS VOLLEYBALL program focuses on child development on and off the volleyball court. Our motto “Teaching young Athletes life’s lessons and values through Athletics while focusing on FUN, FITNESS & FELLOWSHIP as its key principles” is the foundation in which this program rests on. Our Program starts with children 7 years to 18 years of age. Games are played on Sunday’s. A typical session will have eight Sunday games.
The league format is:
9 and Under division, The basic fundamentals of the game are taught. Players play by modified rules regarding serve and position
11 and Under division, The basic fundamentals are reinforced. Players still play by modified rules regarding serve and positions.
13 and under division, Players are more advanced with being able to adapt to proper serve and ball movement. However, there are modified rules regarding the serve and positions but players are challenged quickly to obtain the necessary skills to advance to the next level.
16 and under to 18 and under divisions play by regular high school rules.
Our season format is a 8 game season. Our season lasts approximately 9-11 weeks depending on how many teams are in each division. As per our flyers and advertisements you will see that admission is charged for the recreational volleyball program. The admission goes to offset the cost of the referee’s that work your child’s game. All officials are National Federation of High School certified and trained and many you will see working your local high school freshmen, junior varsity and varsity volleyball games. The league registration fee goes towards t-shirts, awards, insurance and court usage for both practices and games. Sports of All Sorts works with many local agencies in providing opportunities for children regardless of financial ability, age, race or ethnic backgrounds. We remain committed to you, our customer.

Our Recreational programs form teams based upon the following format:
COACH REQUEST – If a child wants to play for a certain coach and that coach has not exceeded the total number of players allowed, then we try and place that child with that coach.
PLAYER REQUEST – Generally this is not a problem because we all know that friends want to play with other friends when they can, so if the requested friend registers and they do not have other restrictions such as coach request, then we try and honor the request and place the friends together.
GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION – When one of the first two are not received then we place players with other players as close to home or school as possible in an effort that they may recognize players or start forming new friendships.
BLIND DRAFT – Well sometimes we just cannot fulfill one of the other three so we then try and form teams by simply using the equal balance drafting procedure in which we go through all registrations left in a division and take one from each pile. The “Pile” is broken down by age and gender.
Once all teams are formed we then rely on Volunteer Coaches to teach your child during the basketball season. If you have ever wanted to get involved with your child, coaching is a great way to do it. Also, all head coaches receive a 50% discount on their child’s registration that plays on that team. The First step after registration and team formation is the coaches meeting. During this meeting, items such as rules, rosters, and codes of conduct for coaches, players and spectators are discussed. Also, during this meeting each coach has the opportunity to request a practice time that is suitable to their busy schedule. After the meeting the coaches are asked to contact all players on their roster and let them know when practice will be held and the coach’s information such as name, and phone number. Also, parents can click on the link “FIND MY CHILD’S COACH” to see what coach they have been assigned to and also what night and time they may practice once the coach meeting is held. Once you have been contacted and the first practice is held, the coach will let you know of the first game time, schedules are available at the front counter in the racks as well as here on the internet. It is always best to check the internet for schedule revisions or updates. Most coaches will have their players show up about 15 minutes early so that the uniform t-shirt can be given and put on for the first game of the season. Please check with your coach regarding special uniform requirements or contact information.
