Volleyball

Grades 5 – 8 Boys and Girls

 

Overview:

Lions offers four (4) divisions (5th/6th and 7th/8th) for the 5th – 8th grade boys and girls of the Cathedral community to participate in.  The Cathedral participates with Catholic Metro Volleyball League (CMVL) who manages and schedules games for the program.  The season runs from mid August through early October.  Registration is open to rising 5th – 8th grade girls.  (space is limited)  This program is open for members of the Cathedral Community regardless of school attending.  CMVL does however require participants be members of a parish or registered at the school as a student.

SPECIAL NOTE about space and slots:  Cathedral of Christ the King may provide up to 12 teams in the league.  The number of teams permitted is limited to the number of those coaching.  Players are turned away from the program or ‘wait listed’ because there are not enough coaches.  Have you thought about coaching or team managing on game days for this season?  Please communicate any desire to be involved quickly to the Director of Recreation as quickly as possible at REC@CTKING.COM.  We can only have the number of teams for the number of coaches, not players.

SPECIAL NOTE, player expectation: A team sport is an activity in which a group of individuals, on the same team, work together to accomplish an ultimate goal which is usually to win.  The program and coaches understand there are occasional / conflicts that arise.  Participants are expected to make 50% of practices and 75% of games.    This is a team effort and team commitment is expected in order for all to be successful in the program.  Remember  participants are potentially ‘wait-listed’ and if you make a slot you need to be there with your team.  A coach may choose to bench a player should they not meet this requirement at any time during the season.
