VVL Frequently Asked Questions
Hopefully the FAQ's below help to answer some of your questions. But if not, please do not hesitate Contact Us anytime!
Q: IS VANCOUVER VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE CO-ED?
A: Yes, the league is co-ed but there is a larger number of girls than boys in our program. We look to create teams that include boys and girls but this generally depends on the kids who sign up. We always look to ensure that there are at least 2‐3 boys on a team together. Friend requests are also welcomed if your child wishes to play on a team with their friends!
Q: My child is new to volleyball. Is the VANCOUVER VOLLEYBALL League a good place to start?
A: Yes! Each weekly session includes skills development as well as game-play so we teach the fundamentals to help newer players learn the game. Each team is assigned a coach each week to help with all aspects of this development.
Q: What's the difference between vvl and club (rep) volleyball?
A: VVL is a house league designed to give all kids a chance to play. There are no tryouts, the weekly sessions are 90 minutes each and the season runs for 9 weeks. Club or Rep Volleyball, (the two names are interchangeable), involves a tryout process each fall where kids are selected for teams in their age group. These teams practice 2‐3 times per week and play tournaments on weekends. It’s a far greater time and cost commitment and the environment is more competitive. Teams play within the Volleyball BC association and often travel to the U.S. for tournaments as well. Many of our Club players got their start in VVL!
Q: My child is interested in improving his/her skills. are their options other than vancouver volleyball league?
Yes! Pacific Coast Volleyball Club offers indoor skills clinics at various times throughout the school year in addition to our Club teams and VVL. You can check out Clinics/Camps for our indoor programs. We also offer Beach Volleyball programs in the summer months (June-Sept).
Q: Are VVL and sunday league the same thing?
Yes, we have used "Vancouver Volleyball League" and "Sunday League" interchangeably in the past. The Vancouver Volleyball League (VVL) or Sunday League is run by Pacific Coast Volleyball Club as one of their many programs for youth in Vancouver.
HOW ARE TEAMS ASSIGNED? DO I NEED TO REGISTER AS PART OF A TEAM OR CAN I SIGN UP AS AN INDIVIDUAL?
Teams are assigned based on a combination of age, skill level, friend requests, and gender. Players will sign up as individuals but during the registration process, you will have the opportunity to provide names of any friends who you would like to be on a team with. We will do our best to accommodate all friend requests.
