Fall Volleyball

Fall Volleyball

Interested in playing volleyball, but missed the Fall season. Registration for Spring Volleyball opens January 1st!

Girls Place offers a Spring and Fall Volleyball season to all girls in 1st-8th Grade.  The girls will learn the fundamentals of volleyball in a energetic and encouraging environment.  Click on the tabs above to learn more.

In the fall of 2017, we started offering a developmental league for 1st and 2nd graders.  It will be similar to our 1st and 2nd grade league for basketball, where the girls practice two days a week and then would have a small scrimmage at the end of the 2nd practice day.  With that being said, the scrimmages for this age group will start when I feel the girls have a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of volleyball.  We are excited to get the girls in the gym at a younger age and also to encourage an active lifestyle.

Please Contact: Charlie@girlsplace.net for further questions.

The cost for the 2018 Fall Volleyball season is $110.  An active 2018 Girls Place Membership ($20) is also required to participate in all GP programs!

Financial Assistance

Every season we are able to provide a limited number of scholarship opportunities to our athletes.  Priority is given to families experiencing financial hardship and extenuating circumstances that would otherwise limit their ability to participate.  Families are required to volunteer in exchange for their participation fees.  Please contact Ms. Kaihla (Kaihla@girlsplace.net) if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.

This season, we will be using a financial assistance application to apply for a bartering scholarship. The administrative staff and the economic status of Girls Place shall determine the amount of members assisted and the level of assistance.

When will practices start?

All girls MUST participate in evaluations on August 22nd OR August 23rd.  You will be given the option when you register your daughter. Evaluations are NOT tryouts, everyone who registers will be placed on a team.  We use the evaluations to determine skill level so that we can make teams as even and fair as possible.

1st and 2nd graders, will NOT be evaluated. They will be placed on one big team and then split up for scrimmages.

Our coaches are all volunteers from the community who are passionate about volleyball and giving back to their community. We rely on our volunteer coaches to provide a nurturing and enriching learning environment.   We want to teach our girls how to play sports – starting with a solid foundation of the fundamentals while gradually implementing new skills and challenging them throughout the season.  If you are interested in coaching this season, please complete our application!  All coaches are required to complete to a Level 2 FDLE Background Screen prior to coaching.

Please contact me (Charlie@girlsplace.net) with any questions in regards to the clinic and I can explain any other details.

Each team will play a minimum of one game on the weekends throughout the season.  The game schedule will be announced during the first week of practice.  An e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address provided during registration with a link to view the game schedule.  We will also post a copy of the schedule on the bulletin board in the gymnasium.
