Volleyball League Information

 

Got game? Hit the courts with the ones who invented the game – the Y!

The Lake Highlands YMCA youth volleyball league has no tryouts and everyone is welcome. It is offered in the fall and spring seasons.  Thanks to the Y’s sports philosophy and volleyball rules, kids participate in every game and receive equal playing time, regardless of skill level. Youth volleyball at the Y develops fundamental volleyball skills, teaches teamwork and promotes physical activity in a team environment. Volleyball players will learn to spike, block, and assist and competitively learn serve, pass, set, attack, block and dig while having a positive experience and having fun.

"Help! I have not received email communication/do not know what team my child is on/do not know when my child's practices and games are."

YMCA Staff will send all communications through our sports management site PLAYERSPACE. All updates to rosters, schedules, weather activity and events will be posted to your team page. It is essential to download the PlayerSpace app to better receive push notifications.

If your coach is not sending messages to the team through PlayerSpace, he may be using personal communication methods such as group email, group text, or Groupme, so please make sure that the email and phone number you provide at registration is correct. 

Notifications from PlayerSpace will be sent to the email address that you provided at registration. Please add noreply@playerspace.com to your safe sender list to ensure that you receive all notifications. If you believe that you are not receiving notifications, please check your junk/spam folders for emails from 'White Rock/Lake Highlands Sports Assocation/noreply@playerspace.com.' There is also a chance that you may have opted out of our emails in previous sports and that is why you do not receive PlayerSpace communications.
