Volleyball – New 16U Program Available!

Welcome to Fall 2018 Volleyball!!  Our program is proud to announce that we are the fastest growing sport in the recreational program over the past four years.  Thank you to all of the players, parents and especially our volunteer coaches for making our program so fantastic!

 

REGISTRATION FOR a NEW 16U FALL 2018 SEASON IS NOW

OPEN

!!!  DO NOT WAIT to register your child to play as the teams fill VERY QUICKLY !!!


REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE ON October 5, 2018 at midnight.   Please make sure you register within this time frame!!!!  This is a new program so please be patient with us as we work out the bugs!

AGE GROUPS AVAILABLE for this component of the fall program:

  • 14-16 year olds

This session is specifically for the older kids who have aged beyond the recreational program administered by the County (Under 14 only).

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 14U PROGRAM ADMINISTERED BY AA COUNTY IS CLOSED FOR REGISTRATION.  We will be offering a spring season that will open registration in February 2019.

Coaching

WE NEED COACHES!   Please indicate on your registration if you are willing head or assistant coach a team and the age group you prefer.  

You will be required to submit a background check.  The link can be found under the team registration tab here:            https://www.aacounty.org/departments/recreation-parks/sports/volleyball-youth/index.html

Players are assigned to a team/coach based upon age group, requested practices days and availability.  Your coach will be your primary source of communication throughout the season.

Practice Schedules

Practices are scheduled to begin as soon as possible!

  • 1  practice per week for one-hour (depending on # of teams registered and available gym space).  If you need a specific day, please indicate that in your registration notes!
  • 1 game per week, lasting approximately 1 hour.  Game location is TBD and dependent on the number of teams that register.
  • Held at Crofton Elementary School and Nantucket Elementary School in the gymnasiums.  Subject to change, pending availability of additional gym space.

Game Schedules

Game schedules will be determined once teams have been formed.  I will send a link to all registrant parents once it is available.  Games will be held on Fridays, and dates and locations will be communicated once schedules are completed.  Currently this program is only for Crofton, but we are asking if other athletic programs want to participate as well! 

IF you have two children playing on two different age levels - it is quite likely that their game schedules WILL cross - either by time, location, or both. This CAN NOT be avoided, please plan accordingly.
 

League Description

CAC Volleyball is dedicated to teaching volleyball to both boys and girls, ages 8 to 16, in Crofton, MD.  Crofton Volleyball begins by focusing on basic skills including bumping, passing, and underhand serving.  Once players have successfully demonstrated basic skills, we move on to more advanced skills including setting, hitting, tipping, blocking, and overhand serving.


Uniforms

Uniform shirts are provided as part of the registration fee for all players.  Fittings will occur during the first practice(s).  During the fitting the players can choose what name they would like included on their jersey (numbers are first come/first serve, names are first names or nick names preferred by the player).

 

Parents Corner

We will attempt to inform, advise, sometimes entertain, and provide you with links to items of interest on the web, and perhaps find you discounts on products, etc. In general, we will attempt to share information important to you. The Crofton Athletic Council considers our relationship with the parent members of the council the most important link to providing the best possible youth sports experience for our children.  We have created the Parents Corner on our website and sincerely hope that it becomes a very important stop for you on our web site (www.croftonsports.com). 

We need volunteers!!!  We need volunteers to help with the following:

-          Coaching the teams

-          End of season party!

Please contact our Commissioner, Jodi Reedy, at volleyball@croftonsports.com if you have interest in coaching or any of the other items listed.  We thank you for your continued amazing support of our volleyball program!!
