Youth Winter League 2021

This page is for teams that wish to participate in the Youth Winter League.

Players that wish to participate in this league as part of a team representing the Northern Lights Winter I, Winter II and Spring Youth Clinics, should reference those clinic pages from the main menu of the website (under “Programs”).


General Information:

This event is for girls 10U-12U in grades 4 – 6.  This league is only for beginners in the sport of volleyball.  Competitive 12U teams should not register for this league and instead register for the 12’s Division of the Power League.

The Youth Winter League will be held at Midwest Volleyball Warehouse.

Play will be mostly on Sundays.  We expect to run several waves over the course of the day.  We may opt to change these start times depending on the number of teams who participate as well as the final format of the games.  When you register for this League (or any Single Playdates in this League), please be sure your team is available for any morning or afternoon play.
