Volleyball – Fall 2020 3vs3 & 4vs4 Leagues

REGISTRATION FOR SESSION (II)

Metro Courts, Inc. and Metro Volleyball Academy believe that players must be challenged at their own age and ability levels to improve performance. Along with the physical development needed to excel in any sport, the environment in which we place players during practice and games should promote fun and enjoyment, along with learning and understanding. It is our aim to provide countless opportunities for players to enjoy and master the fundamentals of volleyball.

WHY SMALL-SIDED PLAY?

In many other team sports, smaller-sided games are played in order to develop players’ technical skills, provide more touches on the ball, improve players’ decision making skills, and to increase game understanding. This model provides more opportunities for athletes to learn both offensive and defensive positions in order to become a more complete player and to understand more readily the roles and importance of teammates.

A DOUBLE ELIMINATION TOURNAMENT WILL BE PLAYED ON THE LAST GAME DAY OF THE SEASON

Note: Due to the complexity of COVID-19, spectators will not be allowed to enter the facility for the foreseeable future. We are working on the possibility of live streaming games and will keep you posted on this as we get closer to opening game day.

COST
$600 per team


Note: If your child is interested in participating, they will need to network to form a team of 4-5 players and register for the same practice day/time. A player or parent has to sign up as “Coach” (lol, you will not need to coach the team, only manage the registration…Gloria has your back!) and then can manage the team registration by creating a join code, send roster invitations, etc. At this time, Metro just does not have the capacity to place individual players on teams nor do we want to take on the task of forming teams from pools of players.
