BYAA Volleyball

2017 Fall Season

The 2017 season is upon us! Pre-season Open Gym/Tryouts are scheduled Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from July 31 through August 18. This is a great opportunity for players to get back into the swing prior to the season opening. This is open to all middle-school aged players, regardless of intent to play BYAA's Fall Season. If you're just looking for a place to get some extra practice in or see if the program is right for you, drop on in and have some fun. Fees are a flat $40 per player for this event.

Our regular Fall Season begins Monday, August 21, 2017. Check the schedule (link below) for specific dates and times and keep in mind that the schedule will be updated as more detailed scheduling information becomes available. Player fees for the 2017 Fall Volleyball Season are set at $225. Our teams will be participating in the Gold Crown League again and these match schedules (specifically match times) will not be published until mid-September at the soonest.
2017 Season Schedule

Spring Clinic

To give potential players an opportunity to experience competitive volleyball, we hold a Clinic in the Spring, just prior to school being let out for Summer Break. This clinic is intended to provide players with an opportunity to gain some court time, learn some fundamental concepts and obtain coach evaluations of their personal strengths and weaknesses. While previous volleyball experience is helpful, it is not required. The clinic is open to all middle-school aged (entering 6th, 7th or 8th grade next year) players interested. This is a great way for players to get a feel for the program prior to formal tryouts the following Fall. Fees for the Spring Clinic are typically in the $40 to $50 per player range.

Fall Season

With this being a competitive league, we hold Team Tryouts as an Open-Gym format in late August of each year. The exact date of Try-outs will be communicated prior to the start of each school year. This is typically run as mixed age and a great way for players to 'test-drive' the program and see if it's right for them. Participation in this event is not considered a commitment to play in the Fall Season, it is open to all interested players (typically 5th through 8th grade age range).

Teams are typically formed by the time school starts and practices begin immediately. Practices are normally twice per week and do not conflict with Berthoud Area school leagues. Matches are generally played on Sundays from mid-September through October. The general team classifications will be based on the current grade level of the player. The grade levels that we try to fill teams for will be 6th, 7th and 8th.

Establishing these teams will be greatly dependent on player interest as well as coaching support. To maximize playing time, teams will be limited to no more than 10 players. Players may elect to ‘play-up’ in a higher grade level if they desire. Season fees typically equate to between $200 and $300 per player.

We are always looking for coaches and assistants. These are voluntary positions and require an application process with background checks. If this is something that you may be interested in or would like more information on please feel free to contact the BYAA Volleyball Director (Kevin Preusse at BYAAVolleyball@Outlook.com).
