VOLLEYBALL

Welcome to Stewards of the Game Girls Volleyball!
Below is some general information about our volleyball program.

Every successful youth volleyball program must provide each player the opportunity to become the best individual and team player she is capable of becoming. As each individual is blessed with different abilities and talents, this implies providing fair, but not always the same opportunities, for each player to strive to achieve her own personal best. Moreover, it is during the struggle to achieve this personal success that lasting life lessons like perseverance, self-confidence, and humility are learned. Stewards of the Game, or any youth sports program, can only build these important character traits and lasting life lessons within a framework that encourages and challenges each individual to become the best she is capable of becoming. Growth, be it physical or spiritual, requires struggle.

Romans 5:3-5 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.

At Stewards of the Game, we believe that in order for players to be given this opportunity, age-appropriate fundamentals and sound biblical principles must be at the very foundation of our volleyball instruction.

PLAYING AGE:

Stewards offers two age groups: 8* - 11 years old and 12 - 16** years old.

Age is based upon players age as of August 31 of the current year.

* exceptions may be made for advanced younger players 

** SOTG Volleyball offers an opportunity for players who have "aged out" but want to continue to be involved with our volleyball program.  Please contact us for more information.

PRACTICES:

Each TEAM practice session will last approximately 1½ - 2 hours.

Optional practices and clinics may be offered based on player interest and court availability.

FUNDAMENTALS:

ALL players attend 4 Skills & Drills clinics to learn the basic fundamentals of volleyball.

Consistent with our overall philosophy and core values, our goal is to start with basic skills and teach more advanced concepts only after these basic skills are learned.

There are 10 fundamental skill areas that we will focus on:
- Warming up properly
- Conditioning
- Forearm Passing
- Overhand Serving
- Overhand Passing
- Setting
- Hitting
- Blocking
- Offense
- Defense

LEAGUE PLAY:

Teams will play 8-12 matches during regular season play.

Each match consists of best 2 out of 3 games (sets).

Games use rally-scoring to 25 (win by 2) and 3rd set is to 15 (tie-break).

Players and parents will be trained on how to officiate games during the regular season.

Spring Volleyball will conclude with a post-season tournament with Paid officials.

SUMMER PROGRAMS:
SOTG hosts a week long SUMMER CAMP for ages 8-12 and 12-16.

SOTG is partnering with Caterpillar Ministries to host a 4-night Volleyball Camp.

This is a great missions opportunity for our SOTG Volleyball players and families!
