  • YOUTH VOLLEYBALL OPEN GYMS TO START!

    Your child will need a pair of good tennis shoes for this league. We will be practicing on
    Wednesday evening from 5 to 6:30pm at Roxford Church Family Life Center and on Sunday in our High School gym from 2 to 3:30pm. These days and times could change pending gym availability. There will be 2 tournaments, one on Sunday, January 27 th and one on Sunday, February 24 th We are asking for a commitment when it comes to this league because it isn’tfair for girls to just show up for the tournaments and to get to play the same amount as girls who have been to several practices. And we are also asking for a commitment to the tournaments because we do not want to have to back out of the tournament due to not having enough players. We do understand that things do come up but we are just asking for you to try and have your child to as many scheduled practices as you can. If you have any questions please feel free to call or text the Coaches!
