Girls Volleyball

 Girls Volleyball (Grades 3-8)

Fees: $130

Season Information

Eligibility: Open to all active parishioners’ grades 3 through 8 who regularly attend religious education classes (including Catholic School, CCD, etc.)  We encourage all to play regardless of skill level or experience. 

Registration: March and April.

Team Formation:

In grades 3, 4, and 5, our focus is on providing an instructional experience. Our goal when players are placed on teams in grades 3 through 5 is to balance the teams.

For grades 6, 7, and 8, our focus is to enhance a player’s individual and team's athletic progress. Our selection process is based on objective assessments of student athlete’s skill and ability.

Evaluations: To accomplish this team construction, evaluations are held for all grades before the beginning of the season. See St Susanna Boosters Policy Handbook for details.

Our Goals

Grow the players love for the sport of volleyball, teach the fundamentals and reinforce the importance of our faith in all we do.  

Additional Information:   
Open gyms and evaluations will be held in May and will be sent out as soon as we have definitive dates. Grades 3-5 are balanced teams, and Grades 6-8 have both competitive and recreational teams. If your daughter is selected for an "A" team, there might be some additional fees for extra tournament games once the schedule is finalized.
Youth Evaluations – Grade 3-5
Evaluations for youth are conducted by different grade parents, coaches, coordinators, and/or athletic director at each grade level. The girls are scored on a variety of skills, which then groups them by the number of teams that are to be formed. The blind draft uses numbers for the coaches to pick from in each group, balancing the team with all levels.
Boosters will not accept request for parents at the Youth levels to pair up as Coaches before evaluations and team selections.  All Assistant Coaches for Youth Level teams are selected at the time of the draft.
Remember, parents are not allowed to stay and watch the evaluations. Teams will be announced the day after school is out for summer.

Varsity Evaluations – Grades 6-8
Based on Booster rules, if your child does not want to play for a competitive team, you need to email the Coordinator and Athletic Director before evaluations. However, all requests ARE subject to Boosters being able to balance rosters across all the teams. Boosters retains the right to adjust all team rosters if needed to conform with League rules and/or avoid cancelling a team.
Everybody needs to come to at least one evaluation if they want to play volleyball, no matter what team A, B, or C. Based on the evaluation scores, the coordinator and athletic director can decide what mix of teams best fits the dynamic of the girls; i.e. 1A, 1B, 1C team or 1A and 2C teams.
In keeping with prior years, evaluations will be independently conducted by several parties. The results are thoroughly discussed amongst all the evaluators before teams are formed. This is the process for finalizing all A, B, and C teams.
Note, parents are not allowed to stay and watch the evaluations. Teams will also be announced the day after school is out for summer.
