VolleyKidz USA Summer Camps

Resident registration opens at 10am on May 10th!

In our 1-week camps, EVP Academies coaches deliver an introductory, yet challenging, series of lessons on either grass or sand volleyball courts. Fun and active instructors also lead a variety of volleyball contests and games. Lessons are designed to develop passing, setting, overhand serving, and spiking skills.

The "Day at the Beach" co-ed tournament camps are for experienced volleyball players age 11 to 16 yrs. Sand court matches in competitive 2-person and 4-person formats (12U, 14U, 16U) run for 5 hours on three Saturdays. Athletes are dropped off, and EVP Academies coaches supervise players for the entire "Day at the Beach." Maximum 20 athletes per day, 5 matches guaranteed, playoffs for all teams. Teams that finish 1st and 2nd receive a bid to compete in the VolleyKidz USA Championships on Sunday, 8/7/22!

Youth Volleyball Leagues

 

The Arlington Heights Park District has partnered with VolleyKidz USA to offer Fall and Winter season co-ed recreational volleyball leagues for 5th through 8th graders. We teach young players fundamental technical and age-appropriate tactical skills and sporting behavior. Teams are limited to 7-10 players to maximize play time.

League information

  • Volleykidz USA certified staff coach and referee all practices and games.
  • Players register individually, by grade. Teams and leagues are Co-ed, and leagues are divided into 5th/6th grade and 7th/8th grade.
  • The 2021-22 season fee is $99.00 for Park District residents and $119.00 for non-residents.
  • Participants have a 1 hour and 15 minute session on Sundays. Teams have a 25-30 minute warm-up and practice followed by a 40-45 minute match.
  • The 8-week season runs on Sundays. The first Sunday,  VolleyKidz coaches lead a practice and player evaluation. Coaches use evaluations to form teams with parity. Games begin the second week of the season, and teams play five regular season games. The last two weeks of the season, all teams qualify for a single-elimination tournament.
  • Because we form teams based on player evaluations, we are unable to accommodate requests to place friends on the same team.
  • All players receive a T-shirt.
