  • If my son/daughter does not live in Loudoun County can he/she still play LYV?

    Applicants from outside of the county of Loudoun are permitted to participate provided there is space on a roster. The non-resident may not displace a resident of Loudoun County. Non-residents will usually be placed on the team that is geographically closest to their home. If that is not possible, the non-residents will be offered an opportunity to play on a team with roster space available. Non-residents may not play on an Open 1 or Open 2 division team. They can only play on a House or a 4th/5...

  • Do participants have to "try-out" for a team? Are players "cut" from the teams?

    LYV is a rec league where every participant makes a team provided we can recruit enough volunteer coaches. There are no "cuts". LYV does divide its middle school girls participants by skill level, so those players wishing to be considered for the higher skilled Open teams should look at the Skills Assessments as a tryout. The House and 4th/5th/6th grade teams, high school girls, middle school boys, and high school boys are "drafted" so we have equally skilled teams in those divisions.

  • Can my 4th, 5th, or 6th grade girl play up?

    Yes. Typically, 4th graders will not play up but are allowed to do so. 5th and 6th graders are allowed to play up. In certain cases, 5th and 6th graders might be needed to play up to fill out a house team. A 4th, 5th, or 6th grader will not be pulled up to a House team without consulting with the parents first.

  • Are walk-in registrants accepted for LYV?

    Yes, LYV will accept walk-ins at our Skills Assessments provided the parent is present to sign a liability release. Walk-ins will be placed on a waiting list and have no guarantee of getting on a team. Walk-in registrants successfully placed on a team must register online and pay in full prior to the team’s first practice.

  • When will I know what team my child is on?

    Some coaches will begin notifying team members as soon as the Skills Assessments are complete. Other coaches might wait a day or two. If you have not heard from a coach by the practice start date at your school, contact your LYV Middle School Representative, LYV High School Girls Representative, or LYV Boys Division Representative. List of division representatives can be found on our website under contacts here.

  • Where does LYV get their coaches from?

    All of our coaches are volunteers. The majority of LYV’s coaches are recruited from the pool of parents at each school. LYV offers coaching clinics at the beginning of the season for volunteers who want to coach but have no volleyball experience. Refer to the Coaches Clinic link on our website for more details.
