Semi Competitive Volleyball
(Winter 2021)

The SPIRIT: Our volleyball program is labeled semi-competitive and is open to any & all who are interested in this level of play. Play will allow hitting and is ideal for players with a bit more volleyball experience. The play is meant to be semi-competitive, but the spirit will always be friendly and fun!

FORMAT: We’ll be making four teams of roughly 9 players. Games will be 6 vs. 6. There are no refs and so teams will self-officiate and keep their own score. The four teams will rotate games against each other each week.

LOCATION: Community YMCA on Gottingen (2269 Gottingen St, Halifax, NS B3K 3B7)

DATES/ TIMES: Sunday @ 5-6 p.m. OR 6-7 p.m. The schedule will tell you which time slot you’ll be playing in.

COST: $60 Registration fee for the season

WHO CAN PLAY?: Players of all ages (19+) and genders! This league is designed more towards experienced players, but the intended spirit is very much fun-first.

HOW TEAMS WORK: We create them, with an emphasis on mixing things up & ensuring there is decent parity in skill levels. That said, players will have the option to name two friends they want to play with, although efforts will be made to mix up teams & equalize skill levels, in the spirit of fun that we foster.

COVID-19 means that rules are fluid and subject to change. We are currently finalizing a detailed return-to-play plan specific to each program & consistent with provincial guidance, the latest version of which can be found @ halifaxplays.com/volleyball/rules/
