Select League (4th - 9th Grade)

Welcome to the SELECT League! 

The SELECT League is designed for the players that would like to advance to the next level in their volleyball careers. This program is built for Intermediate and builds the bridge between NEXT League and Club Volleyball. 

In contrast to the Academy/beginner level ran through the YMCAs, SELECT players must try out to be selected for a team. Players will be evaluated on the following: passing, serving, hitting, overall volleyball knowledge, and coachability.

Items included with being on a team are:

  • Players will be on their teams from December to May with 1 Head Coach 
  • Players will practice at their location 1 night a week for 2 hours 
  • Each Team will play in 4 Inter-League Playdates in the Cobb area between January and April; instead of just 1 game every weekend at NEXT, SELECT teams will have multiple games in 1 day and then be seeded for an End Of Season Tournament.

 

Players will be introduced to different aspects of the game, for example: 

  • A weekly newsletter full of new volleyball information for players to learn outside of the gym
  • They will learn actual rotations rather than PE Rotations 
  • They will learn volleyball "positions"; instead of only feeling comfortable with Back Row or Front Row players will have the opportunity to be an Outside Hitter, Middle Hitter, DS, or Setter 
  • End of the Season Tournament will be run like a true "Club" tournament to prepare them for Club 1 day Tournaments. 
    • This means participants need to prepare to be in the gym play all day for at least 6 hours. We will be in pool play first, which is usually 4 full games, then reseed and prepare for Bracket Play. 

 

Our goal is to make three (4) 4th-5th-grade teams, three (4) 6th-8th grade teams, and (2) 9th grade teams at each location.
