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.-March) 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 10 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.  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 1:30 pm – 6:00 pm at the Avera Human Performance Center.  Games will be played in blocks from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm and 4 pm – 6 pm.

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

On the last weekend of play (March 12) both age groups will participate in a single elimination tournament.
