Volleyball

Welcome to Fall 2019 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!

FALL VOLLEYBALL REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

Hello everyone! We are excited for another fall season of Volleyball!

Registration is now open!

Please note the following items when registering:

1)     Fall Volleyball is run through AA County parks and rec. The cut off date for the age groups is Sept 1. In order to play, your child must be 8 as of Sept 1, 2019.  The age groups are as followed:

·        10U: Birthdates between 8/31/11-8/31/09; child turns 8 before Sept 1, 2019 and turns 10 before Sept 1, 2019

·        12U: Birthdates between 9/1/09-8/31/07; child turns 10 after Sept 1, 2019 and turns 12 before Sept 1, 2019

·        14U: Birthdates 9/1/07-8/31/05; child turns 12 after Sept 1, 2019 and turns 14 before Sept 1, 2019

2)     Unfortunately, at this time, the County does not plan to have a 16U age group. However, I am in communications with their office to see if we can get that established. If the County decides to add a 16U group, I will send another message for registration for it.

3)     Please note days your child CANNOT make practices in the fall, if known at time of registration

4)     Please note requests for specific teammates on registration pages

5)     Please note request for specific coaches on registration pages.

6)     I have been asked several times about boys playing-volleyball registration is open to both boys and girls. At this time, there is no separate league or teams for just boys in the County league.

            PLEASE CONTACT ME AT [email protected] IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEING A COACH. YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE ABACKGROUND CHECK DONE AND ATTEND A COACH’S CLINIC TRHOUGH THE COUNTY. You will need the background check done BEFORE the season starts at the beginning of September. I am waiting on a date for the first coach’s clinic but the background check is most important before the season starts. New coaches are welcome. Volleyball is growing fast and the number of participants increases every season. We are always in need of coaches!

We can also offer a coach’s training session at the very beginning, if not before, the season starts if you are interested and yet feel you may not know enough!

If we have enough coaches, we will accommodate (4) teams in each category, which results in 48 players in each category.

PLEASE NOTE REGISTRATION IS CLOSING AUGUST 16, 2019. MANY FORMS NEED TO BE INTO THE COUNTY BY END OF AUGUST AND TEAMS NEED TO BE FORMED BEFORE FORMS CAN BE SUBMITTED FOR EVERY PLAYER, COACH AND TEAM.

More information about volleyball rules, regulations and play can be found at https://www.aacounty.org/departments/recreation-parks/sports/volleyball-youth/index.html

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 [email protected] 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!!
