The last tryouts for the season are 6/3/22. Once all of the athletes have had the chance to tryout, we will use those scores, as well as the end of season assessment scores for returning athletes, to build the new teams for the Summer Galaxy Season.
Keep your eyes out for an email on Saturday afternoon thru Sunday evening. If you do not see one, please check your Junk or Spam folder as sometimes our emails get shuttled to those folders.
The season will begin the week of June 6, last 8 weeks, and finish with a tournament on July 30th and 31st.
We look forward to getting the athletes started on a fun and exciting season!

The fall season of Galaxy will be open for registration in July! New athletes will be required to register for a tryout session first. Current Summer athletes will have the option to return without a tryout, using their end-of-season assessment as placement scores.
STAY TUNED for date information regarding our Fall Galaxy Season!
The Galaxy League program was established for boys and girls in middle school & high school ages 10-17. We are opening the league to younger elementary school players ages 8-10. Players are chosen based on athletic and skill testing, then placed on a team with participants of similar testing scores and age.
This Fall season, Galaxy will host elementary school teams, several levels of middle school teams, high school girls teams, and both middle school and high school boys teams. Elementary school teams will be co-ed. The Fall Season will last 8 weeks. Each team will have 16 practices. Possible practice days are Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, though each team will only practice twice each week.
**If you have scheduling preferences because your athlete can NOT participate on a particular day, please make a note of this on your registration form.**
Athletes new to Galaxy must attend a tryout for the session.** Schedule will be announced soon** YOUR ATHLETE CAN NOT BE PLACED WITHOUT AN ASSESSMENT.
A tryout is not a guarantee of placement on a team. Athletes are placed based on their assessment scores and team availability.
** Galaxy Summer athletes can use their end-of-season assessment for team placement if they choose. Summer Galaxy families should look for an email with more information in early May.
Practices will be held Monday, Wednesday, Friday evenings or Sunday afternoons. All practices will be led by NVVA coaches and held at the Virginia Volleyball Center in Sterling, VA. Your practice days will depend on the team your athlete is assigned to. We will not know the days until teams are formed. Your athlete will practice 2 times each week.
$600 to include all practices, practice and tournament t-shirts, and tournament.
A payment plan is available with 2 payments. The first payment of $425 due upon registration to a team, and the second payment of $200 due a month later.

Each team will practice 2 days most weeks. Galaxy practices will be held Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday evenings. Your athlete's practice days will depend on the team they make after tryouts. Practice times could be 6:00pm to 7:30pm or 7:30pm to 9:00pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. 5:00pm to 6:30pm, 6:30pm to 8:00pm or 8:00 to 9:30pm on Fridays. Sunday times vary, including 1:00 to 2:30pm, 2:30 - 4:00pm, or 5:00 to 6:30pm. Families can request practice days to avoid. And while we try to honor those requests, the final schedule depends on the athletes that tryout and the teams formed. We do try to keep younger athletes at earlier practice times, though MS teams can have any of the latest practice times.
** Galaxy teams will NOT practice on 7/4.**
