FAQ

Player Evaluation Day gives SoCal Elite’s volleyball coaching staff an opportunity to observe each player’s volleyball ability and knowledge before teams are formed. Each registered player will go through a basic volleyball skill assessment that encompasses passing, setting, hitting, and serving.

After players are evaluated, teams will be formed internally to provide a competitive and fun experience for all players. Teams are coed and formed by dispersing talent as evenly as possible to ensure fairness – they are not limited by the number of boys or girls on each team.

Our volleyball league practices will be led by SoCal Elite’s volleyball coaching staff with the help of Parent Coach volunteers.

SoCal Elite is always looking for volunteer Parent Coaches for all seasonal leagues. If you are unable to, or do not want to, volunteer to help operate SoCal Elite’s volleyball leagues efficiently, you are required to pay a ‘buy-out fee’ to cover the cost of bringing on additional staff members.

Each week there will be an hour and a half session for players to get an opportunity to practice and play scrimmages. Your whole division will practice together. After practice is over, your team will play a scheduled scrimmage against another team in your division. Depending on the division’s volleyball ability, there may be modifications to the games to provide the best experience.
