There are 3 leagues (recrational (5th-8th), travel (7th-8th), and young adult/adult. All leagues, except travel, are co-ed (meaning a team can consist of both girls and boys). The travel league is girls only and requires a tryout. Depending on the interest and skill level, SCAA may field a middle school travel team that will participate in a Fairfax County travel league.
Recreational - for players in 5th - 8th grade interested in learning the foundations of volleyball and who have zero to intermediate experience. Matches for the elementary and middle leagues could be played against other SCAA rec teams or against neighboring recreation clubs.
- The players will focus on learning the foundational building blocks for passing, setting, and hitting. They will learn the key elements of team work (communication, attempt pass-set-hit before sending ball over the net, and learn to cheer on teammates regardless of points won or lost during games).
- If there are at least 3 teams, your team may be assigned as the work team during game nights. There are usually 4 players assigned to the work team and duties include: 2 line judges, scorekeeper, and down ref.
- Playing time should be relatively equal but could vary due to how quick or slow the rotations happen and participation at practice.
Travel - for players in 7th - 8th grade interested in playing at a higher competitive level and skills. This league is for intermediate to advance players. Coaches have the discretion to recruit skilled players in the 5th and 6th grade. Matches are played against other organizations throughout Fairfax County. Since this league is more competitive, coaches have the autonomy to establish the playing time policy that will be shared with the parents and players at the beginning of the season.
Adult - for players who are currently in high school or 18+ years old. This league is for fun and there are not formal teams assigned. We hope that this league will become popular so that we can make it more competitive (in-house and/or with sister organizations).
COACHES NEEDED - Since SCAA Volleyball is a volunteer run organization, we are in need of coaches for our preparatory, recreation, and travel leagues. We would like to ensure we have enough coaches to give each player the maximum number of "touches" and game play. As a coach, you get to decide what day(s) and time(s) you would like to practice from the schedule provided by FCPS. If interested, please click HERE.
