Loudoun Youth Volleyball (LYV) is a recreational volleyball league serving girls and boys in grades 4-12 who reside in Loudoun County, VA. LYV runs from the beginning of September through the beginning of November. LYV is a division of the Northern Virginia Volleyball Association (NVVA) and has been Loudoun's premier volleyball rec league since 1997. LYV is affiliated with Loudoun County’s Parks, Recreation, and Community Services (PRCS).
Girls in grades 4-8 are placed on teams based on their age and skill level from the group of players at the middle school they attend. High School age players are placed on teams that are established with balance, competitiveness, and geographic convenience in mind. All LYV Girls teams will practice in Loudoun County schools.
Boys in grades 4-8 are placed on teams based on skill level first and then, if appropriate, by where they live to maintain maximum convenience. Wherever possible, practices will remain in close proximity to the participant’s school. High School age players are placed on teams that are established with balance and competitiveness in mind. All LYV Boys teams will practice in Loudoun County schools.
The goal of Loudoun Youth Volleyball is to provide boys and girls with the opportunity to play and enjoy volleyball in a competitive yet safe and fun environment. LYV's philosophies are to build individual, systems, situational volleyball skills, encourage players to have fun playing volleyball, and creating life-long volleyball players. LYV coaches help players become the best players they want to be, challenge players to want to learn and grow, and teach players skills that will make them better at volleyball, sports, and life.
Based on this philosophy, we encourage all those interested, regardless of experience and ability, to join our program and play on our teams. If you don't know how to play, WE WILL TEACH YOU! There are no tryouts, just a one-time skills assessment and ALL those who register are placed on a team. We promote maximizing ball "touches" as the best way for players to master volleyball skills, and participating in competitive league matches as the best way to learn and enjoy the game.
