Virginia Youth Volleyball League

VYVL_large
 
VYVL IS A FOUR MONTH PROGRAM WITH TRYOUTS IN NOVEMBER AND PRACTICES STARTING IN JANUARY
 

Virginia Youth Volleyball League is designed to be an introductory travel program for girls ages 11-16. Therefore, we designed it for kids who want to make travel teams in the coming years or who simply don’t want to commit the additional time or money to travel. It will give players and parents a small taste of what a full travel team does. As teams are not a part of USAV, teams may be mixed ages based on registration numbers and skill.
