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: $95.00
This includes 10 weeks of play, 1 scheduled practice per week, 2 matches every other Saturday, a season end tournament and an EmBe Volleyball team t-shirt.

Will take place at various Sioux Falls gyms for one hour between 6:00pm – 9:00pm on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays.

League Games: 
Will be held on Saturdays between 8:00 am – 5:00 pm at EmBe South, EmBe Downtown or another Sioux Falls gym.  Each team will play 2 games on a Saturday and play every other weekend.  We will play 3-4 grade league games one weekend and the 5-6 grade league games the next.

Kairos is a partner of Avera Sports Institute.
