Our hope is that your family will (re)join one of the fastest growing sports for both women and men in the U.S. and around the world here at your local youth club.  Although, we primarily service students zoned for the South County HS pyramid, we are not bound by zip code restrictions and welcome all who would like to register.

Leagues

 

There are up to 3 leagues...4th grade preparatory, recreation (5th-8th), possibly travel (7th-8th). All leagues, except travel, are co-ed, meaning a team can consist of both girls and boys. 

 

  • Tryouts are required for travel league. Details of the tryout will be emailed to the players who are registered for the travel tryout.  There will be a $10 tryout fee paid at the tryout (not at the time of registration). 
  • For those players that accept an offer, an email will be sent for you to pay the $150 fee (plus an additional $50 for players who need a uniform) and payment must be made within 7 days.  If you paid the recreation fee, that fee will be applied to your travel fees and you must pay the difference within 7 days of receiving the email.

 

Clinics

SCAA Volleyball may offer position or skill specific clinics occasionally throughout the season depending on coaching and gym space availability.  Additional information will be posted to the website and emailed to past and current registrants.

Team Formation​​

In the event we don't have enough coaches registered to maintain at least a 1:10 ratio, registered players will be added to a team in the order listed below.  All others will be moved to the waitlist.  As additional coaches register, players will be added to a team in the order listed below.   

 

      1. Coach’s child(ren) and grandchild(ren) (e.g. biological, adopted, foster, etc)

      2. Players in the order that their registration AND payment was received

 

Player Evaluation​​

In an effort to keep the teams even, the recreation coaches may decide to have evaluations.  Players who are registered in the system will receive an email with the details. 

 

​Coaches are vital to the success of this program.  If interested, please click HERE.

  • No experience is necessary. 

  • Coaches will have at least one coaches training before the start of the season (pending gym availability) or at the beginning of the season. 

  • If a student (age 14 - 17) wants to coach, they must be assisted with an adult 18+.
