5th-8th Grade Fall League
In 2015 we started an 8th Grade Fall League. It was a HUGE success and was very popular. This league is a great supplement to your school Junior High season. This league is designed not to conflict with your school season, so that you may get extra training & competition during the Fall with our program! We have since added a 5th-6th grade division.
Players register as individuals, and participate in a tryout camp (included in league cost). During this camp our staff will evaluate players and form teams based off how we feel is best for training. No requests for teammates/teams will be taken. All practices/competitions within each age group are at the same time - so carpooling is possible regardless of team placement.
Once teams are formed, they will practice once per week and compete against other teams in our league on four Sunday afternoons! All players will have 1-hour open gyms prior to each practice and 30-minute open gyms prior to each Sunday Competition. Players can ask our staff for extra help during these open gyms! All league players will also have an optional skills training night (Wednesdays) they can attend each week for FREE! The other unique thing is during the Sunday afternoon competitions, teams will spend half of the time training cooperative and competitive drills with their opponents prior to playing them in a 3-set match. It's a great atmosphere to train and improve!
The last practice of the season will occur after the final competition date. This will be a fun night, where players will be able to train and play with other players from the league.
