CYO Volleyball

Boys & Girls CYO Volleyball 

All Incarnation Parish boys & girls (school & PREP) grades 4-8 are welcome.  Non-Incarnation students can participate if your registered parish doesn’t field a volleyball team.  Note: Incarnation Parish policy says all participants must attend Catholic school or enrolled in PREP to play. The goal of CYO is to offer an enjoyable experience for all players to learn the game and compete to the best of their ability with neighboring parishes!

REGISTRATION:  PLEASE REGISTER EARLY!!  Registration closes Dec 16.  It will be difficult to add players late because rosters are due to Dayton CYO before Christmas.  The season typically runs January to April.  Practices will begin in January as court time is freed up by the basketball program.  Matches begin in February and are played at Catholic schools throughout the Dayton area.  The season will wrap up in April with a tournament.

 

Team Assignments:  Teams will be assigned by coaches and the CYO commissioner.  We may hold an open gym and/or clinic to help conduct evaluations.  Teams in the 4th and 5th grade are generally chosen by volunteering coaches. 
 
Coaches and Coaching:  Parents and other volunteers are encouraged to coach!  We have resources available to assist; no experience is necessary.  All coaches are required to meet Archdiocese requirements (e.g., VIRTUS trained).  Coaches can request practice times but aren’t guaranteed their first choice.  There are generally 1-2 matches on the weekends, in addition to weekly practices.  
 
Volleyballs:  Teams in grade 4-6 use "Volley-Lite" while grades 7-8 use standard volleyball.  Coaches will be provided a bag of volleyballs for practice.  It’s helpful for players to bring their own volleyball to practice with their name on it.
