2013 Spring Season (SYA Volleyball)

2013 Spring Season


Online registration starts on December 1, 2012 and runs until February 16, 2013. The cost this year will be $100.00 per child. A $20.00 late fee will be charged for those who register after February 16, 2013. * Please note that there will be an additional Fairfax County fee of $30 if your child lives outside of Fairfax County. If your child should make one of our Travel Teams, the cost is $125. We plan on having girl’s travel team(s) at the 7/8 grade and High School levels this season to play matches against teams from Springfield, McLean, and other local area organizations. We will keep our web site up to date on all volleyball information. SYA volleyball is co-ed, boys and girls play together for the 4-6 grade, 7/8 grade and high school age house teams.

There will be a coaches’ meeting on December 9, 2012, 7:00 PM at the SYA office, call me for directions, Dave Lacey 703-615-2606. Additional meetings will be held in January and February.

The season will start around March 18th and go until about May 30th.

We will have the following age groups: 4/5/6 grades, 7/8 grades and high school. Those 6thgrade children wanting to play at the 7/8 grade level will have to try out with the 7/8 grade children. You will also need to indicate this desire when you sign your child up so that we know to contact you for his/her skill assessment time. The 7/8 grade level and the high school age children will have to go through a skills assessment review so that we can balance the teams out in those two age groups. The skill assessment will take place in February. We will contact you in early February to give you the exact date/time and location. They will only take about 20 minutes. The 4/5/6 grade children can indicate whom they would like to play with when they sign up. We will do our best to place them with their friends. If your child is in 6th grade and has not played before, he/she will be placed with the 4/5/6 grade level. This is to ensure that every child plays at an appropriate skill level.
Travel team tryouts will take place first and we will notify everyone when they will take place. If your child does not make one of those teams, then she will also go through the general skill assessments noted above.

Practices are on Monday or Tuesday. High School Houseand Travel Team matches will be on Wednesdays. The 4th-6th grade & 7th-8th grade House teams will play on Thursdays, though some could be on Friday. Please note that due to the 7/8 grade and high school teams being defined by the skill assessments, we will not ensure that other players are placed on your child’s team.

We will offer coaches’ and players’ clinics in February or March of 2013 before the season starts.

Travel Team tryouts will be on February 21, 2013 at Liberty Middle School from 6:45-8:00 pm.

House assessments will be on February 26 at Liberty MS
for those 6th Grade boys and girls wanting to play up and all 7-12 Grade boys and girls.

For those 6th-8th grade boys and girls the times are as follows based on the first letter of your last name.

A-G  6:00-6:30 PM
H-N  6:30-7:00 PM

Your child will be placed on a team if he/she cannot make this assessment date.

The season will consist of one practice and one match per week running from March 18 to about May 30, 2013 all during the week. There are no weekend activities, except for the final all-star event on June 8, 2013. The all-star event is played against the all-star teams from other local youth volleyball organizations. SYA volleyball will once again make its all-star selections by providing each of its teams a specific number of players to be chosen who are then given the opportunity to try out against the other SYA players in that age group and from the tryout a given number of players will be chosen depending on the total number of teams entered by SYA in each age group.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 703-615-2606.
