This league will play in a three division format, breaking up the players by grade and ability. It is designed for girls in grades 4, 5 and 6. Players of any skill set, beginner through advanced are welcome. Skill assessments for registered girls are held in late November, early December, and practices beginning in January with the season ending in March each year. Registration normally begins in late October, or early November.
Skills that will be taught include serving, serve reception, setting, passing, blocking, and transitioning. The adapted net height and the use of USVA certified Volley Lite volleyballs ensure personal success.
Players will need to provide their own knee pads and First Friends Sports League volleyball jerseys are required. The jerseys are included in the league fee. Each team consists of a roster of 9 players and two coaches. There are 8 games with practices once a week. There will be a short devotional time where we share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ every week.
