Introducing our WAVE SMG Youth program (formerly developmental league)! What's SMG? Sharks, Minnows & Guppies! Our Sharks are our 5th and 6th graders (possibly stronger 3rd & 4th graders with approval); our Minnows are 3rd and 4th graders; and our Guppies are 1st and 2nd graders. The SMG Youth program is for beginner to novice level players in the mentioned grades - focused on developing the fundamentals of volleyball, introducing the game, preparing players to play club, and having fun!
Registration for our Winter SMG Youth League is now open. All players should be in 1st-6th grade (2013-2014 school year). All rising 7th and 8th graders can join our Jr. High League, which will also be on Mondays and Wednesdays. Click here for more information on the Jr. High League - the current season just started.
SMG Youth League Session Information:
SMG Youth League is for players who have little or no volleyball experience and are looking to learn the basics and team dynamics of the game of volleyball in a structured environment from an excellent coaching staff. Many of our Youth League players continue on to the next session, or 'graduate' on to our Junior High League program.
Our program will prepare players to improve their volleyball skill set, and develop the participants as players and people. Players will be placed on teams chosen by age, then skill level.
Players should currently be between the ages of 6 and 13 years old and will be going into 1st - 6th grade. There will be two tournament dates included as well as practice times for each age group. It's a great value for the practice time, tournaments and coaching for the summer.
Practices will be at Competitive Edge Sports Complex (The Edge).
Practice times and days for all players are:
Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00 pm for the Sharks (5th-6th graders)
Mondays 5:30-7pm for Minnows and Guppies (1st-4th graders)
