GAME VENUE
IMPORTANT CHANGE: Although we have been at Lavallee School, 505 Ste. Anne's Rd. for more than 10 years, the school division has decided to withdraw the permit in order to offer the community a drop-in program.

The League will therefore move to John Henderson Junior High, 930 Brazier St. 


PRACTICES
Teams generally practice once per week, the time and venue are at the coaches' discretion. During the Evaluation process, coaches will approach athletes they are interested in to see if their practice location and evening will work for them. This is where parents find out about practice options. See below for list of teams looking for athletes.

 

EVALUATION PROCESS 
Athletes are placed on teams by attending Evaluation Sessions where coaches attend and offer spots to athletes on their teams. This is where athletes learn about the practice options available.

  • 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.
  • Athletes will be asked by coaches which friends they may wish to play with. Coaches are expected to keep friends together.
  • Athletes who reside outside the city can choose that area that is closest to them.
  • Parents should be prepared for the possibility that their child be asked to join a team outside their immediate area.  There are a limited number of teams in each area within an age class.
  • Athletes are expected to attend evaluations until they are placed. lf additional sessions are required these will be added as needed.

TOURNAMENT
"Spring VolleyFest" - Sunday, June 9, 2019

Why Choose VISION Rec League...

The VISION Youth Rec League 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.

The league also attempts to have athletes train in their area with regional clubs. That being said, it may still be necessary for some athletes to join a club outside of their area depending on the available number of teams. 

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. 

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

REGIONAL CLUBS

"Titans Volleyball Club" for athletes who reside in the Charleswood, St. James, & River Heights area; 
"Tigers Volleyball Club" for athletes who reside in the Fort Garry, Lindenwoods, & Fort Richmond area;
"Fusion Volleyball Clubfor athletes who reside in the St. Boniface, St. Vital & Southdale areas; 
"Stars Volleyball Clubfor athletes who reside in the East Kildonan & Transcona areas.

PLAYING TIME
The Youth Indoor Rec League is a fair-play environment. 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.

What people have to say about our rec league

The VISION Youth Indoor Rec 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.
