Volleyball is currently offered to students in 5th-12th grade. Our regular season will run from roughly August 5 – October 25.
Required Equipment: Each Participant will be required to bring their own volleyball, knee pads, tennis shoes, water bottle, and appropriate attire.
Practices: Teams will usually practice or play a minimum of 3 days each week. We will refrain from holding practice on game days. Practices are usually held at Adversity Training Center in Germantown, Monday and Wednesday form 4:30pm — 6:30pm.
Games: We anticipate the teams will play 10-15 games at locations throughout the greater Milwaukee/S.E. Wisconsin area. Game schedule will be posted on the volleyball calendar, as information becomes available, here on the WCHSA website.
Tournaments and Travel: We will participate in a number of local tournaments. Members of the high school team will participate in one or more tournaments that require an overnight stay.
Absence from Team Activities: Players are expected to support their team throughout the season at both practices and the games. Unexcused absence from practices and games will result in reduced playing time.
Competitive Level: All teams will be competitive in nature, the coaches will encourage each team member to display excellence in their character and to perform at a high physical level of skill. While all players will not receive equal playing time, effort will be made to play each team member.
Team Selection: Individual team assignments will be designated by the coaches after the registration deadline. The coaches, working in harmony with the WCHSA board, will make every effort to uphold organizational goal and Christian standards in these determinations.
Player Requirements: Character- Players are expected to exhibit Christian behavior and attitudes as they strive to glorify God through their witness both on and off the court.
Level of Experience-
Grade school: Prior participation in organized volleyball is not required or expected.
High School: Prior participation in organized volleyball is very helpful, but is not required.
All Teams: A willingness to learn and improve, as well as a sound work ethic is a prerequisite for participating
Parent Requirements: We expect our parents to participate in our organization by striving to act in a Christ-like manner. Additionally, our organization is made up entirely of volunteers (including our coaches). It is critical to our organization’s success that parents give of their time and talents by proactively volunteering in WCHSA planning, programs, coaching, and activities.
Number of Players: Each team will consist of 7 to 10 players. We must have a minimum of 7 players to constitute each viable team.
Commitment to Spiritual and Physical Youth Protection: WCHSA will make every reasonable effort to meet each player’s spiritual and physical needs. Some ways we hope to accomplish this are by:
- Interviewing each coach and requiring that they express a clear profession of faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior
- Requiring at least two board-approved adults at each practice session; for boys, at least one of which will be an adult man — and for girls, at least one of which will be an adult woman
- Encouraging appropriate attitude, behavior, and actions during all practices and games
- Discouraging spectators from attending practice times to reduce player distraction and allow players and coaches to better focus on team objectives.
