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. The season will begin Monday, March 4th (for the 5th-6th graders) or Friday, March 22nd (for the 1st-4th graders) and will end with a home scrimmage date on Wednesday, May 22nd. 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).
