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

EmBe offers a winter and fall volleyball season that runs from January – March and September – November. Each team is built with ten youth and two volunteer coaches each. Open to both boys and girls. Teams are divided into two divisions; 3rd-4th grades and 5th-6th grades.

Season Sponsors


Cost: $130.00 + Sales Tax
Scholarships Available

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.

Registration & Team Information:
All skill levels are invited to participate in our recreational league. Our league is made up of two divisions: 3rd – 4th grades and 5th – 6th grades, boys & girls.  Teams will be organized based on grade level and school they attend. EmBe reserves the right to mix players from different schools to form teams. League organizers do their best to accommodate special requests and preferred practice days, but preferred placement is not guaranteed. Each team will be led by two volunteer coaches and meet one day each week for a one hour practice or clinic. Registration closes July 19.

Practice Information:
Practices will start the week of September 2nd. Practices will take place at EmBe Downtown, EmBe South, or a local elementary school for one hour between 6:00pm – 8:45pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. Practice is led by two volunteer coaches. If your team does not have the two required coaches, your team cannot move forward with a season.

League Games: 
Will be held at the Avera Human Performance Center.  Games schedule is TBD.

Each team will play two back to back games per game day. The tournament will be a single elimination. Recreational play is emphasized while regular volleyball rules are followed. All players are required to wear non-marking tennis shoes. Kneepads are encouraged, but not required.

We will not turn anyone away based on inability to pay. Scholarships are available.  If financial assistance is needed, please contact Jasmina Miller at (605) 681-8329 or jnmiller@embe.org before filling out participant’s registration to be granted a scholarship code.

Volunteers make this program successful!

No volleyball experience necessary to coach a team. We just as that volunteers have a passion for mentoring young athletes and helping them be their very best! Two coaches (male or female, 18 years & above) are required for every team, creating flexibility in scheduling! If a team does not have two coaches, they cannot continue with the season.

Volunteer coaches are provided training materials and practice plans for the entire season. Coaches give 1 hour of their time each week to their team. We do understand schedule conflicts arise, we ask that all coaches be present at majority of practices and games.

If you are interested in coaching, please complete the volunteer application below. A background check will also be required but will be sent to you once the application is received and your coaching spot is confirmed.


Sponsoring our volleyball league, a division or a team is a great way to advertise your business!
