In order to have a 2024 spring league season for grades 4-8, and to be able to accommodate the high interest level at these ages, we are reaching out early in need for coaches. If interested, please email the Spring League Coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2024 will be the 13th season that Hudson Volleyball Association has offered Spring League volleyball to 4th - 8th grade girls in the Hudson School District. We have an exciting opportunity for girls to learn the game of volleyball at a younger age and significantly improve their skills by the time they enter high school. Approximately 50 area communities in Western Wisconsin participate in this spring volleyball league each year allowing an opportunity for a wide range of competition.
While the girls will get a chance to play in a significant number of volleyball matches, the main focus will be during practice by teaching the fundamentals of the game, perfecting the basic skills, and learning how to be a positive team player. The girls will then have the opportunity to take what they learn in practice and apply it in competitive game situations.
The volleyball league has grade divisions 4/5th, 6th, 7th and 8th. Skill assessments may be needed for 6th-8th graders and will be scheduled in early February. If your daughter cannot make that date, you will need to contact email@example.com. All teams will be assigned prior to the first practice and parents will be notified. Teams will be kept to 10 players.
Practices will be held 2 times a week for 90 minutes starting around the end of March held at Hudson school gyms. Due to the number of teams, practices could be any day of the week. Players will be expected to attend practices or their play time will be reduced. All absences or late arrivals should be communicated in advance to the coaching staff. Please consider the involvement your child has in other activities and sports before registering for this team sport. Each player is a vital component to the team dynamic and missing practices can inhibit the player from building upon their skills and bonding with the team. Practice scheduled for the upcoming month will be known by the preceding mid-month, which will be available on our calendar and communicated by your teams coach.
Matches are played on Saturdays from April through mid-May. A league championship tournament (LCT) will be played for 7th/8th Grade mid-May. Teams will play 3 matches and will typically be scheduled for 4 play dates. Only 7th/8th grade will have an option to play in the League Championship Tournament.
Hudson will have the opportunity to host several home tournaments. We try to have one for each grade level. We can't host these tournaments without volunteer help.
Unlike other organizations that demand you give a Volunteer check that is held until you fulfill your obligations, we ask that all families volunteer 2-4 hours of time at home tournaments in which your daughter plays. The time can be donated by mom, dad, a grandparent or older sibling, etc... Type of work includes: pre-tournament prep, selling concessions, taking admissions, keeping score, tournament set-up/take-down, clean-up, etc...
This is a travelling volleyball program. You will have to commute to other communities, some may be near and others may not. (Most are an hour drive or less.)
Spring League is for girls in Grades 4-8 in the Hudson School District. Typical spring league season is end of March to mid-May. Registration opens in early to mid January.

UPDATES for 2024 -
1) Please be sure that you select the current school grade 2023-24 for your daughter when registering as we cannot ensure team placement if the wrong grade is selected.
2) Registration numbers are limited. The registration will close by grade when the capacity is reached OR on Jan 31st at 11:59pm whichever occurs first. We have limited numbers to start for a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, managing team size (to not "cut" girls), facility space availability, ability to have league playdates for all teams, etc.
Spring League questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All players are required to print and complete a WIVL Medical Consent Form (all other required forms will be part of the electronic registration). Girls will not be able to attend practice or participate in a placement clinic without the completed medical release form and copies will NOT be available. This form will be available to download when you register & is also posted below. We are not able to accept emailed forms.
Once registered, players should immediately mail the completed form to: HVA, Attn: Spring League, P.O. Box 672, Hudson, WI 54016.
Players that are confirmed registered for Spring League 2024, will be eligible to participate in a 2 session series to get ready for the upcoming season. Session 1 will focus on all skill areas of volleyball and Session 2 will build on the first session. This opportunity is optional for all registered spring families for an additional fee of $25 to cover facilities and coaching fees. Players MUST bring the completed medical consent form to the first session.
