Select League (4th-8th Grade)

The Select League is designed for the players that would like to take the next step in their volleyball careers. This program is still built for beginners and builds the bridge between NEXT League and Club Volleyball. 

In contrast to the Academy/beginner level ran through the YMCAs, players must tryout and be selected to play on a team in the Select League. Players will be evaluated on the following: passing, serving, hitting, overall volleyball knowledge and coachability. Items included are:

  • Players will be on their teams from December to April with 1 Head Coach 
  • Players will practice at their location 1 night a week for an hour and a half 
  • Each Team will play in 4 Inter- League Tournaments in the Atlanta Area between January and April instead of just 1 game every weekend, teams will have multiple games in 1 day and then be seeded for an End Of Season Tournament 
  • Each month players will be introduced to different aspect of the game, for example: 
  • They will learn rotations instead of PE Rotations 
  • They will learn what "positions" are instead of just feeling comfortable with Back Row or Front Row they will know if they want to be an Outside Hitter, Middle Hitter or Setter 
  • Games will be run like "Club" tournaments, to prepare them for Club 1 day

 

Our goal is to make three (4) 4th-5th-grade teams and three (4) 6th-8th grade teams at each location to provide a good number of teams to play each weekend in hopes that you are not playing the same teams each week.
