Overview

This league emphasizes skills, fundamentals, sportsmanship and fun. At this age level, participants play on elementary high nets and use softer volleyballs. Everyone is guaranteed to play an equal amount of time because there is no substitution (substitution is on rotation). The main goal of this program is to have FUN! Achieving the goals and objectives we have for young players requires a cooperative effort involving parents, coaches, referees and the Wheaton Park District staff. In an effort to lower the level of intensity on the court, volleyball coaches are asked to keep their comments on game day to a minimum. The behavior of parents, spectators and coaches can make or break a child’s experience. Please show good sportsmanship and offer only positive reinforcement. Please remember nobody wins or loses, because we don’t keep score. Our program emphasizes fun, sportsmanship, and skill development.
