EmBe Youth Volleyball program provides kids an opportunity to learn the skills of the game in a recreational, non-competitive, environment.

EmBe and Kairos Elite Volleyball Club with Avera Sports have collaborated to bring an even greater volleyball experience to youth! With a shared vision to positively influence the lives of youth through volleyball; area kids will benefit from the knowledge offered by the two organizations, providing a seamless experience that fits each child. More than 1000 youth benefit from the EmBe and Kairos partnership. We offer two seasons of league play; one in the winter (Jan.-April) and one in the fall (Sept.-Nov.). Teams in each league will be formed according to grade and school attending with ten youth and two volunteer coaches each. Our league is broken into two divisions; 3rd-4th grades and 5th-6th grades.

Cost: $100.00
This includes 11 weeks of play – 1 scheduled practice per week, 2 back to back games every other Saturday, final weekend single elimination tournament, EmBe Volleyball team t-shirt and season end participation medal.

Will take place at EmBe Downtown Gym for one hour between 5:30pm – 9:00pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.  Avera Human Performance Center on Fridays from 5:30-6:30pm.  If a coach chooses an alternative night to practice, the coach must find their own practice site.

League Games: 
Will be held on Saturdays between 8:30 am – 1:00 pm at the Avera Human Performance Center.  Games will be played in blocks from 8:30am-10:30am and 11am-1pm.  We will alternate league age groups each week.

Each team will play two back to back games in that time block.

On the last weekend of play (November 20) both age groups will participate in a single elimination tournament.

Game weekends are as follows:
