Volleyball

St Paul Volleyball is available for grades 3 through 8. All leagues are recreational through the 6th grade. The leagues for grades 7 and 8 will offer both competitive and recreational teams as registration allows. St Paul school is not competitive in the sense of the Club or Select volleyball definition but in the best way we can be with the skill level of our players. St Paul school does not have the student numbers to form a team at the select level. In addition, being a Catholic school we have additional goals that we are looking to share with these girls, many described in the document above. All of the players will practice 100%, all of the players will be coached to improve their fundamental skills and knowledge of volleyball and all of the girls will be a 100% part of the team. It is important to remember that while improving skills and presenting a strong team is a goal of the St Paul Sports program but the overall goals of building team work, sportsmanship, faith, friends and FUN are also at the forefront! All girls are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the various select volleyball opportunities offered in our area. Coaches will assist in guiding any player interested in these opportunities.
