Youth Girls Volleyball League - Spring

The Orange County Youth Volleyball League is a developmental recreation program for youth ages 9-15-years-old. Volunteer coaches will work with players to improve individual skills with emphasis on the fundamentals, while instilling values in teamwork and sportsmanship. Fee includes team shirt.

Team Formation, Practice, and Game Play:

There will be no skills assessments or drafts. Players will be assigned to pods by Recreation Division Staff. The first three weeks of the season will be podded play; players will be divided into a pod of no more than 20 players and four coaches to practice together one night per week and scrimmage the second night of the week. At the end of week three, each pod will be divided by its volunteer coaches into two teams of no more than 10 players and two coaches. These teams will continue to practice as a cohort, but will play games against the two teams from the other 20-player pod. 

The Platinum Division (13-15-year-olds) will practice on Mondays in two time slots (5:45 p.m.-6:45 p.m. or 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.) and play on Wednesdays in the same two time slots (each pod/team will rotate times throughout the season). 

The All-Star Division (9-12-year-olds) will practice on Tuesdays in two time slots (5:45 p.m.-6:45 p.m. or 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.) and play on Thursdays in the same two time slots (each pod/team will rotate times throughout the season).

  • COVID safety precautions developed in consultation with Orange County management and the Orange County Health Department will be in place.
