Fall Volleyball runs from mid-September through late-November. Winter Volleyball runs from January through mid-March with a break over Super Bowl weekend.
* D Level (formerly "social"): A fun league with emphasis on learning where the object is just to get the ball on the other side of the net. Only the most basic rule violations are called for safety. This league is intended to be a fun and social experience for those that just want to be more active in the community and learn a basic understanding of Volleyball. If there are not enough teams to form a league, teams will be offered to move up to the next appropriate skill level.
* C Level (formerly B1): All teams attempt to use 3 contacts (bump, set, spike) on almost every offensive possession. Teams are starting to begin to learn the rules of the game as well as working on their ball control. Basic rule violations (rotational errors, lifts) should start to be called. Hitters who can consistently hit a heavy ball may be asked to move up a higher league for safety purposes. If there are not enough teams to form a league, teams will be offered to move up to the next appropriate skill level.
* B Level: Teams are now very comfortable using 3 contacts (bump, set, spike) on almost every offensive possession. Teams may start to have dedicated setters and hitters while they learn the rules/positioning of the game. Players are learning how to transition back and forth between offense and defense. All teams block and have very strong perimeter defense. At least one player on the team should be well versed in the rules (and basic strategies) of volleyball. Players may start to specialize in their position of being a setter or hitter. Individuals in this league should be able to serve over the net almost all the time and consistently pass free balls over to their setter. Setters may double on occassion but can at least set a consistent ball to the outside. Hitters should be able to hit the ball in a downwards mostion. If there are not enough teams to form a league, teams will be offered to move up to the next appropriate skill level. There is a limit to the number of NAGVA BB level players to 1 per team. (Unless exceptions have been otherwise granted, please email if you have any questions about player ratings)
* BB Level: Teams should be extremely comfortable running some form of perimeter defense. Players now have specialized roles in being a hitter or setter. Setters should be able to set the ball with little to no spin upon release. Teams probably should be running a 5-1 or 6-2 offense and practicing set plays. (High B to NAGVA BB Level) The big difference between B and BB is that most BB teams have at least one strong hitter in every single rotation.
2023 Sand Volleyball Leauge Information
6:30 REC/Intermediate -- A fun and casual league where the focus is on fun. Teams do whatever it takes to keep the ball from falling to the ground and only the most egregious rule violations are called.
7:30 Intermediate -- All teams attempt to use 3 hits and better the ball at every opportunity. Defensive systems are organized and should be able to keep most non-hard driven balls in play. All players have some idea of the basic rules and can do most of the basic volleyball skills at an intermediate level. (Pass/Dig/Set/Hit/Block/Serve)
8:30 Intermediate/Competitive -- All teams are able to use 3 hits and convert any non-heavy driven ball into an attack most of the time. Teams have solid defense and passing and are able to adjust their strategies based on the opponent they are playing. Unforced errors are rare. Players have a pretty good understanding of the rules are able to call most of their own rule violations when playing.
Congratulations to the following winning teams!!
