Virginia Youth Volleyball League

VYVL_large
 
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 11-16. 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. Tryouts are required and not everyone will make a team.

PRACTICES

Starting the week of January 3, 2021, VYVL teams practice 1x a week with extra optional practices on Sunday afternoons throughout the season

Competition

The Virginia Youth Volleyball League (VYVL) is designed to be an introductory travel program.  Teams will compete again other RVC VYVL teams, and similar teams from Northern Virginia Volleyball Association (NVVA) and Tidewater Volleyball Association (TVA).  There will be five tournaments between February and April – three held at RVC, one at NVVA, and one at TVA. 

Note: Because of COVID-19 we are still finalizing plans with NVVA and TVA for tournaments. If we are unable to partner with NVVA and TVA due to health and safety concerns, the plan is to play in house against each other with the possible addition of RVC Regional teams to increase competition.
