League Overview

First started in 2001, VISION Premier League is a program offered by Volleyball Winnipeg. VISION Premier League is a unique blend of instructors who train athletes during practices and parent-volunteer coaches who coach during games. 

INSTRUCTION
Volleyball Winnipeg provides instructors for every team practice where two teams training together. Instructors will review positional play and team strategy along with the fundamentals of the game.

VISION INSTRUCTORS

  • Run team practices 
  • Follow VISION's training protocol
  • All instructors undergo training with VISION Elite on the unique techniques the club uses to train young athletes


TEAM PARENT REP
For our program to work effectively every team will require a "Parent Rep". The parent rep will communicate directly with the Program Director should problems arise. Bench coaching during league games is also undertaken by parents and is organized by the Parent Rep. Parents participating in team games as bench coaches will provide the team instructor with feedback on what areas of the game the teams need tow work on.

PARENT VOLUNTEER COACHES

  • Assist instructors during practices
  • Bench coach the team during games


PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY
Although coaches are asked to respect the league's fair-play policy during league games, coaches may favour athletes during the season-ending tournaments. That being said, we ask coaches to hold athlete/parent meetings prior to competition if they intend to reduce playing time.

PLAYING TIME
The VISION Premier League is a fair-play environment. That being said, parents should understand that playing time may be affected by each player’s chosen position (fewer setters, for example, would result in them playing more) and bench coaches have the right to favour players during the season-ending Championship Tournament.

Please note that teams in divisions with eight or more teams can expect to play two matches of 45 minutes each while divisions with 4-6 teams will likely play one match of 90 minutes. In brief:

  • Matches will be two sets only when playing two matches
  • Matches will be four sets when playing one match                             
  • Bench coaching is limited to providing feedback in-between sets. Referees and a site convenor will be on hand to sit with teams to review strategy and offer feedback. 

ADDITIONAL RULES

DIVISION B

  • ROTATE: Teams rotate out of position one and into position six to allow for fair play. Players do not normally switch to designated positions
  • 5-SERVE RULE: There is a max of 5 serves per rotation with the serving team rotating to allow a new athlete the opportunity to serve
  • STEP-IN: Athletes can step over the line when serving
  • HAND PASSING: Athletes can pass serves with their hands

DIVISION A 

  • Volleyball Canada rules in effect except the following:

- No libero 
- 12 Subs unlimited
- You can pass  a serve with hands

DIVISION AA

  • Volleyball Canada rules in effect except the following:

- 12 Subs unlimited
- NOTE: You can pass  a serve with hands / Libero is permitted


FIRST PRACTICE OF THE SEASON
During the first practice of the season the instructor will start with a parent meeting to ensure all parents understand the rules of the league and that there is a bench coach confirmed.

  • Athletes confirm their practice schedule when registering online
  • Two teams of 8-10 athletes train together. This ensures there are always 12 athletes to play 6 on 6 games while at practice
  • The teams are formed during the first practice. Friends are kept together
  • Positions are also confirmed during this session and may affect athlete placement


SCRIMMAGE DAY
The first scheduled day of league games is officially our "Scrimmage Day" in which no scores are recorded. Based on the results of the days games some teams may be re-tiered to ensure balance in the tiers. Therefore, scores will not be counted towards league standings.

TOURNAMENT DAY
The Championship Tournament will be hosted on the final weekend of the season and Volleyball Winnipeg reserves the right to host the event over the weekend and may include any day from Friday-Sunday. 

YOUTUBE
Volleyball Winnipeg will do its best to post game videos on its YouTube Channel for parents to view along with their child. We would like to hear from any parent who would like to register as the team's videographer, please contact us at: hello@volleyballwinnipeg.ca

Out of town residents’ welcome! We have many participating athletes who reside outside the Winnipeg-area. Our program is not limited to Winnipeg residents only.
