  • 1 practice per week - practice times can be 5pm but typically are 6pm, 7pm or 8pm. (4th & 5th graders will not have 8pm practices.)
  • Coaches select times and gym. Parents can select up to 3 practice conflicts during registration. Please note the conflicts when registering. Once assigned to a team there will be no changes
  • Practices are in Lafayette or Moraga.  We will not take requests for a particular gym-the coach chooses this.
  • 1 game on Saturday per week
  • Season runs from March-May
  • No requests  and no changing teams after assignment in volleyball. Teams are made mostly by school and/or are based on the evaluation results (team balance is a priority)
  • Players are provided with a game shirt.
  • No jewelry of any kind is permitted during games or practices - This includes pierced ears (taping ears is not allowed as a substitution for removing earrings). We suggest getting ears pierced during the off season of all LMYA sports.
