Welcome St. Edwards CYO Girls Volleyball Page
Our CYO program is designed to provide all girls residing within the St. Edwards community with the opportunity to participate in an organized volleyball program. The foundation of the program is to promote and teach volleyball skills in a Christian environment that emphasizes sportsmanship and fair play. We welcome all girls in our community from grades 4th through 12th. Below is a description of our program.
Our Intramural League is for girls in grades 4th through 8th grade. The teams will consist of 4th and 5th graders in one league and 6th, 7th and 8th grade in the other league. All players will receive a uniform and will have practice 1 night per week and play a total of 10 games.
Our Inter-Parish League is for girls in grades 6th through 12th who are looking to participate with the opportunity to play games in a structured league setting. The amount of registrants will be a deciding factor towards the number of teams in each grade level. If necessary, grades may be combined to form teams. Teams formed must adhere to the rules set forth by the St. Edwards CYO board with the help of CYO Nassau Suffolk. Most teams will play teams from other Catholic parishes in Nassau County. There will be a 10 game schedule followed by playoffs for the top teams in each division. There is normally one practice and one game per week although there could be multiple games in a week. The link to Nassau/Suffolk CYO is: www.cyons.org. This is not a true travel program. We are utilizing the leagues of CYONS to faciliate play. Teams will not carry over year to year.FacilitiesAll of our practices are held at the St. Edwards gym. All teams have 5 games at home and 5 games away at various parishes that participate in the CYO program. Coaches
All coaches are volunteers from our community. New coaches are always needed and welcomed for teams at all levels. Coaching is a wonderful way to build relationships with the kids in our community. Coaching experience is necessary, so if you have knowledge of volleyball and want to teach to the girls, that would be great. Coaches are required to complete a background check form and attend Virtus Training. New coaches also need to attend a sanctioned workshop through CYO of Nassau Suffolk.
Register online. Once a draft is held, there are no refunds issued.
