MANITOBA'S ONLY YOUTH VOLLEYBALL LEAGUES

The Volleyball Winnipeg Youth Indoor League is a fun, recreational program where players are placed on teams based on the area of the city they live in and their general skill set. All games are held on Sunday afternoons so as not to conflict with school sports.

The program is split into three seasons. The Fall, Winter and Spring sessions. These consist of one week-night practice and league matches on Sunday afternoons. Every season runs for 10 weeks and ends with a Championship Tournament. It should be noted that each season has a week-end break as a result of statutory holidays. Detailed schedules located at the bottom of the page.

What athletes have to say about the program ...
"Volleyball Winnipeg gives a lot of great opportunities and is a good environment for girls to learn and experience different teams and skills." - S. K.

"We had really good coaching and it was very fun to play. There also wasn’t pressure from my coaches and teammates to not make mistakes which I really liked, because I could just have fun!" -H.T.

Feel free to read more comments from our Youth League athletes on our "Youth League Reviews" page.

Why Choose the VW Youth League...

Volleyball Winnipeg is flexible with age and places athletes in tiers according to their ability. This allows athletes to improve according to their ability and to experience optimal levels of play with other athletes of similar skill levels.

It is important for new athletes to participate in the process if they wish to find a team. Athletes that cannot be placed on a team are provided a full refund.

VOLUNTEER COACHES
The Volleyball Winnipeg Youth League is a volunteer-driven non-profit with a sincere appreciation of the need for our League Coaches. Children of VW Youth League coaches can participate in any Volleyball Winnipeg Fall, Winter and Summer Camps at no cost. Volleyball Winnipeg also provides coaches with a number of free merchandise. This is our way of saying "Thank you!" for taking the time to give back to the sport and the young athletes placing their trust in you. Thank you!


PLAYING TIME
The Youth Indoor Leagues are fair-play environments. However,  please remember that coaches do have the right to restrict the playing time of athletes that regularly miss practices or otherwise do not understand their assignments on the court. Furthermore, parents must also understand that not all athletes play the same position and may therefore not play equally with athletes playing other positions.

EVALUATION PROCESS 
Athletes are placed on teams by attending Evaluation Sessions where coaches attend and offer spots to athletes on their teams. Athletes are separated according to the area of the city they reside in so that they will be offered opportunities to play on teams that practice in their area as much as possible. Still parents should be prepared to travel outside of their area if the need arises.

Important: Please note that athletes are expected to attend evaluations until they are placed. lf additional sessions are required these will be added as needed.

New in Spring 2018: All returning athletes will need to attend the evaluations and participate in the Parents Meeting and Athlete Evaluations.
