Participants will have the opportunity to play indoor volleyball in an organized, competitive, yet recreational setting. The emphasis will not only focus on teaching the basic skills and fundamentals, but also to teach fair play, teamwork and sportsmanship.  Registration is open to boys and girls in 4th grade through 8th grade. Practices begin Monday, Aug. 20. Cost is $50 per participant.

Games will be played on Sundays at Sports Pavilion Lawrence, 100 Rock Chalk Lane. Game shirts will be provided.
