Youth Volleyball

Youth Volleyball at the YMCA

Learning proper volleyball fundamentals at a young age is key to future success. The Y provides Youth Volleyball leagues for young athletes in the Greater St. Petersburg area. We provide highly-skilled instruction and competition for those players looking for a character-driven league. Our leagues and clinics promote sportsmanship, fun, parental involvement, competition and the basic foundations for learning how to play volleyball.

Creating a Safe Environment

For Players

  • Providing special COVID-19 training for coaches and staff on health and safety procedures and guidelines
  • Focusing on individual skills during practice time
  • Limiting team sizes to reduce the number of players on the field at the same time
  • Discouraging unnecessary physical contact, including handshakes, fist bumps, hugs, etc.
  • Discouraging sharing of items such as pinnies/practice jerseys, water, snacks, etc.
  • Providing socially-distanced seating areas for players during practices and games
  • Monitoring players for symptoms of illness; If a player becomes ill, they may not participate and a director will determine when they can return
  • The game ball will be sanitized before each game

For Families

  • Spectators should maintain at least a 6 feet distance from others
  • For outdoor events, spectators should bring their own chair (bleachers will be off-limits)
  • Masks are required inside our facilities; For outdoor events, spectators should wear a mask outdoors when unable to maintain at least a 6 feet distance from others
  • We ask that spectators do not congregate in groups of 5 or more
  • We ask that only members of the same household as the player attend as spectators
  • Parents are encouraged to send a ball to practice with their child for their own use
