Sand and Indoor Leagues

We typically run outdoor sand leagues in the Spring and Summer and indoor leagues in the Fall and Winter. Spring season usually starts mid-May and runs through mid-July, and Summer starts in mid-July. Indoor leagues typically start at the end of October, with the first session finishing up in mid-January and the second beginning in January and ending in Mid-March.

 

General Details

We have added another night of play for 2018: Wednesday. Spring leagues are up and running and Summer registration is open. Our leagues generally sell out or get very close to it, so do not wait until the last minute to sign up if you want to play.

 

Format

  • Teams are co-ed and consist of six players on the court - at least two must be female
  • Registration fees are based on 8 players per team and include eight shirts. Extras are available at an additional cost
  • Shirts, equipment, and referees are provided by MSSC
  • Matches consist of three games/sets played to 21 points (rally scoring)

 

Divisions

Teams self-select their division, subject to MSSC approval. This is the best way we can define our divisions:

  • Lower: Teams with little-to-no playing experience. They don't pass well (or even understand what a pass is) and do not utilize the bump, set, spike technique on each play. Most players serve underhand and teams are generally called for a fair number illegal hits during the course of a match. Most players on the team cannot spike well, if at all
  • Intermediate: Teams who have some volleyball experience, but generally do not have any players who played in high school or college. They understand the basics of the game and fall somewhere between Lower and Upper
  • Upper: This is MSSC's highest level of play, but is by no means "Power" (for those who understand the term). Many players on the team played in high school or college or otherwise have a fair amount of organized playing experience. They understand the bump, set, spike technique and try to employ it whenever possible. Most players serve overhand and can spike fairly well if they are tall enough

 

Overall, our leagues tend to be at a lower level of competition than others out there. Please sign up for a higher division whenever possible, as teams who actually belong in Lower do not enjoy getting destroyed by teams who are much better than them.

 

Dates and Locations

  • The regular season is 6 games, followed by 2 weeks of playoffs
  • Locations: Spring and Summer sand leagues will be at Olbrich Park on Olbrich Ave.

 

Prizes and Other Benefits

  • Champions t-shirts will be awarded to the league champions
  • Gift cards or cash prizes will be distributed as well based upon the number of teams that register

Individual registration details: Individuals may sign up and we will place you if we have room. No payment is required at sign up; we will contact you if we have a spot for you and place you when payment is received.

 

Do not register for multiple nights if you are not able to play on multiple nights. We count on all free agents being available for any and all nights for which they register. If you are able to play on multiple nights but only want to play one night, register for the night you prefer and indicate in the comments section that you would be able to play on other nights.
