Spring and Fall
SVAA's goal is to create an environment where every child will play and learn the game. No tryouts are required.
SVAA offers volleyball for 3rd - 6th graders. Over 1,200 play in the fall and spring seasons. Teams play regulation volleyball following a best two out of three format, with rally scoring. 3rd and 4th graders play in a relaxed, instructional mode. The fall and spring season for 3rd and 4th grade is instructional with no end of season tournament. 5th grade and higher provides an end of season tournament in both fall and spring.
All teams will be assigned a maximum of 10 players.
Each team gets one 90-minute practice time per week on a weeknight in an RISD gym. Practice slots are chosen by coaches. The ball size used for 3rd - 6th grade is the VolleyLite.
Our Spring season runs mid March through the beginning or middle of May. Our Fall season runs early September through early November.
