About SYA House Volleyball


The SYA House Volleyball program is designed as a developmental, recreational league for beginning to intermediate volleyball players and for more advanced players that cannot make the commitment for travel or club volleyball. House teams are co-ed and broken into leagues based on age: 

  • Elementary School (ES) League – 4th thru 6th grade
  • Middle School (MS) League – 7th and 8th grade

  • Please be on time, we have a tight schedule! Please do not ask to switch times. Safety restrictions require that we limit the number of players in the gym at one time.

Within each league (ES and MS), SYAV attempts to balance teams with a mix of skill levels on each. At the ES level, players are assigned to teams attempting to balance the number players at each grade level, the number of season of experience and the number of first time players. At the MS  levels, the balance is achieved by means of a player assessment and draft by the coaches of the league. Participation in the MS player assessment is mandatory. There is no make-up date for assessments.

**There is no assessment for Elementary School League players. Experienced 6th grade players who desire to play at the middle school level must attend the MS player assessment. If their skill is determined to be sufficient to play at the middle school level and there is room on middle school teams, they will be included in the middle school draft and placed on a team. 6th graders who do not wish to play at the middle school level, should not attend the assessment.  4th and 5th graders are not eligible to play up at higher levels.


All practices will be held on a weekday evening for 90 minutes. Typically, house teams practice on either Monday or Tuesday (possibly on Wednesday - schedules vary from season to season). The practice night and time will be assigned to each coach based on the coaches’ schedule needs.  Practices times are typically 6-7:30 pm or 7:30-9 pm during the week.  

Practices are once per week and will begin the week of March 12th. Games are once per week and will begin on Thursday the week of 3/27/2023. There are no practices or games during FCPS Spring Break. Playoffs will be held in late May or early June (dates TBD). 

Matches for all leagues are once a week for 90 minutes and will occur between 5:45 PM and 9:00 PM, typically with an early and late time slots. The actual schedule will be determined per level (ES or MS) and will be finalized after the number teams per level is determined. Games are played on either Wednesdays or Thursdays and the full schedule will be released once gym space is confirmed. Please note: last minute schedule changes may sometimes happen. This is out of our control but we do our best to give as much advance notice as possible.


SYA requires players, parents, and volunteers to complete a Concussion Training course each year. Click here for more information.
