Virginia Youth Volleyball League
VYVL IS A WINTER/SPRING 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 11-18. 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.
Total season cost is $615 ($225 paid when registering plus $390 paid when accepting spot on a team after try-outs). Players who wish to play VYVL must register online before tryouts and pay a $225 registration fee. This $225 registration covers:
- $60 RVC membership
- $55 admin/tryout fee (non refundable)
- $50 fundraising (raffle tickets given at Pre-tryout Orientation)
- $60 applied to the $450 Team Fee.
- If a player decides not to play or is not offered a spot on a team, $170 of the Registration Fee is refundable with the return of the raffle tickets.
When a player is offered a spot on a VYVL team, they must pay the remaining $390 of their Team Fee to accept the spot on the team.
To help negate the cost of playing for parents and players, at Pre-tryout Orientation each player is given a book of 50 raffle tickets. These raffle tickets are pre-paid for as a part of your registration fee and can be sold for $1 each. When you sell the 50 raffle tickets, you keep the money, bringing the cost of the program down to $565. The raffle is for a cash prize drawn on President’s Day (Monday, February 17th) with 1st Place winning $1000, 2nd place winning $500, and 3rd place winning $250.
Starting the week of January 6, NYVL teams practice 1x a week with an extra optional practice sessions on various Sunday afternoons throughout the season
The Virginia Youth Volleyball League (VYVL) is designed to be an introductory travel program.
