Bump, Set, Hit….  

LoneStar Youth Volleyball League is open to athletes from 1st through 6th grades in Recreational and 10U through 16U in Competitive.  Teams and individuals are welcome! Complete details on the team divisions and options are listed below.

Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall League Seasons

 

  • Each season is 8 weeks in duration with Friday night or Saturday morning games
  • Weekly practice, 1 game t-shirt, 8 matches and 1 tournament.
  • Recreational teams are grouped by grade – Friend requests are accepted.
  • Competitive teams are grouped by USA Volleyball age divisions
  • All teams are formed based on friend requests, school attending or area of town, where possible.
  • Unassigned athletes (athletes without an existing team) are added to existing teams with openings or newly formed teams

Types of Coaches Available for League Teams

LoneStar Professional Coach Team

  • Staff coach trained to conduct proper application of all volleyball skills using LoneStar’s consistent training methodology based on Gold Medal Squared (followed by the USA National Team). 
  • All staff coaches utilize consistent terminology and skill application throughout all LoneStar Youth Volleyball programs.
  • Higher probability of team placement as LoneStar controls the number of teams and placement of athletes
  • LoneStar Coach Teams have a primary professional coach for practices and games.
    • Due to overlaps or conflicts in schedules, a substitute professional coach may fill in from time to time.  Our goal is one assigned coach to one team for the season.

Existing Teams with their own Practice Facility

  • An option is available for an existing team that practices in a location they have secured.  The cost of the practice facility is removed from the fee and is paid as a Team Fee rather than an individual player fee.  All other fees are included in the Team Fee paid by the Volunteer Coach who registers the team.

Volunteer Coach Team

  • Volunteer coaches have a varying level of skill knowledge and experience coaching teams and/or volleyball.  They will coach both practices and games*.
  • Volunteer coaches are not screened for knowledge or experience.  They may be a parent or school coach, however, this is not identified in their team registration.
  • Placement on a Volunteer Coach Team is based on the availability of existing Volunteer Coach Teams with openings or volunteers stepping forward to coach a newly formed team.

 

*Volunteer Coach Team with LoneStar Professional Practice Coach

  • Typcially, this is a pre-formed team with a Volunteer Coach for practices and games.  The LoneStar professional staff coach will train players and mentor volunteer coaches during practices only.
  • The cost is not included in the individual player registration fee.  The fee is separate and paid upfront by the Volunteer Coach once the staff coach is assigned.  The team will reimburse the Volunteer Coach equally.
