Division Descriptions

Recreational

This division will feature players that lack experience and/or are learning the basic skills of volleyball. This is the ideal league for beginner volleyball players. Players registering for this league should abide by the "fun-first" mentality. The following points describe the level of play that should be expected:

  • Focus is often on just getting the ball over the net rather than executing 3 hits.
  • Players generally do not have specific player positions (i.e. power, setter, middle, etc.).
  • Underhand serving is more common than overhand serving.
  • Hard hitting is NOT allowed in this division.

Intermediate

Most players on the team typically have some experience playing volleyball, although a few players on the team may be new, or may be above average in skill. The following points describe the level of play that should be expected:

  • Hard hitting is allowed, however, it must be done in a controlled manner. Players can anticipate that approximately 1 out of every 3 rallies will contain a hard hit. Players that hit hard should do so with respect and direct the ball at players on the opposing team that are capable/comfortable with receiving the hit.
  • Typically there are 3 contacts made prior to returning the ball over the net to the opponent.
  • Passes are not always crisp and accurate.
  • Some blocking will occur.
  • Players may have specific positions, however; for the most part teams do not have organized attacks.
