Fall 2021 Youth Volleyball
Fall Youth Volleyball Registration Open August 16 – September 24
Portland Parks & Recreation invites established teams and individual players to register for the youth volleyball program. The PP&R youth volleyball program provides players an opportunity to learn and practice fundamentals, develop teamwork, and participate in match play in a recreational environment. Players in fourth grade through high school are eligible to participate and all skill levels are welcome.
New COVID protocols affected the PP&R volleyball program and caused a change in the practice/game format. PP&R teams, whether registered as independent players or established teams, now practice and play games on Saturdays at Parkrose Middle School. Teams with their own practice spaces will be scheduled for games only on Saturdays. Following is an example of the two-hour practice/game format for two teams.
8:30am - 9:30am Team A practices on Court 1.
Team B practices on Court 2.
9:30am - 10:30am Team A plays a match against Team C on Court 1.
Team B plays a match against Team D on Court 2.
Each Saturday has four, two-hour time slots that provides practice/game opportunity for eight teams. An additional eight teams have opportunities for game play only. The Saturday format is ....
8:30am - 10:30am Practice/game play
10:45am - 12:45pm Practice/game play
1:00pm - 3:00pm Practice/game play
3:15pm - 5:15pm Practice/game play
The beginning of the season is rescheduled to Saturday, October 2 and continues through Saturday, November 6, which provides six weeks of practice and game play.
