Tuesdays - Skill Development (13U - 18U): This program is an 8 week program designed for participants who are looking to develop and refine their beach volleyball skill sets while learning to be more effective on the sand. Participants will learn proper technique and tactics for forearm passing, setting, serving and attacking through progressions and modified games. This program will be divided with 45 minutes of skill development followed by 45 minutes of modified game play.
Thursdays - Youth 2's League (13U - 18U): Volleyball Alberta Youth 2’s Leagues are a fun way to be physically active during the summer months. It provides an opportunity for youth to practice their skills in a game-play structure. Participants register in 2’s (co-ed or same gender) and will play 2 games each Thursday. The last league night will consist of playoffs and prizes will be given.
- a $60 default deposit is required over and above the registration fee.
-default fees are charged in increments of $20
-Each time a team does not show up $20 will be deducted from the deposit that is refunded at the end of the league play (i.e. if a team misses two league nights then the refund will be $20)
-The default deposited will be refunded in full at the end of the season if there are no defaults.
It is the responsibility of the team to find a replacement if a player is unable to attend a league night. All substitutes MUST register as a Beach Recreational Player Role ($8.25) prior to arriving on the beach courts.
The sessions will run in all weather conditions unless there is lightning or severe rain making it unsafe to play. Always show up to games even if it is raining as weather can change very quickly. The Beach League Coordinator will email all team contacts by 3:30pm the day of to confirm if we are playing or not.
You can check if a league night will be canceled by looking on the Volleyball Alberta Website: http://www.volleyballalberta.ca/ (both the ticker on the front page and your specific beach page), VA twitter account, or by email.
We will be following the 30/20 Rule during game play which was set out by the Canada Safety Council.
If thunder is heard within 30 seconds of seeing lightning, games will be postponed. All participants must leave the playing area and seek shelter in a building or an automobile. Never stand under trees, in an open field, or under an umbrella. Games will resume 20 minutes after the thunder and lightning have moved away. If thunder and lightning are still present 20 minutes after, the game will be cancelled and the score counts as it was when the game was stopped. Halfway point of the game must be reached (11 points by one team) for the game to count towards the league standing.
