The Juniors division is for any youth who are currently 15 and younger. One boy must be 14 or younger to play with another male in this and any other coed division. Two girls may play together on July 2. Juniors divisions are played on a women's height net.
Parent-Child Division Rule Clarifications:
This division on Saturday, July 2nd and September 3rd, is open to any gender parent and child (age 17 and under). The Parent-Child division is played on a women's height net with the short (8m x 8m) court. To eliminate the competitiveness of the Parent-Child division, there will be no prizes awarded to the winning teams. This division will only have two rounds of pool play and will not have any kind of elimination tournament. All the children who participate will receive a small prize. If you want to compete for better prizes please consider playing in one of the other divisions such as Novice or B.
The parent-child division is for the purpose of the child to have a positive experience and to get as many touches on the ball as possible. It is not for the purpose of the parent to dominate the match. As our children get bigger, and they express an interest in the sport of volleyball, we want to give them a division that they can participate in and not feel intimidated. That is why the parent-child division was developed.
In order to put the adults on a level playing field and for the safety of the children, adults may not contact the ball, above the height of the net, when the ball is attacked. This includes legal tipping, roll shots, and setting the ball over when the ball is above the height of the net. The adults also may not block. There are no restrictions on serving. However, it is recommended that if the adult serves the child they do so at the child's skill level.
