You may also want to keep an eye on our FB group.  Teams are posting weekly looking for players.  Check the information below for details on subbing in TSVL.

Welcome to the Recreational Division

The Recreational Division in TSVL plays on Thursday evenings and welcomes players of all skill levels to enjoy sport and develop volleyball skills in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. Focus in this division is on fun, physical activity, development, and socializing.

There are two Recreational seasons:

Fall: September – December (registration usually in August)
Winter: January – April (registration usually in December)

People looking to play in the Recreational Division are required to sign-up as an individual (unlike the Intermediate or Competitive Divisions where players register as a team).

New registrants attend a new player Combine (detailed below) prior to the start of the season. The Combine Committee evaluates skill levels in the various aspects of volleyball (i.e., passing, setting, serving, etc.). The Combine is for internal purposes only and does not affect how you participate in the division.  Teams are then created using a system that attempts to create balanced teams, so that each team has a range of skill levels represented and are able to compete fairly with the other recreational division teams.

This system also allows beginners to play with more experienced players, providing an opportunity for learning and skill development in regular season play, in addition to the TSVL’s Development Clinics that run separate from Thursday night play.

Questions about the Recreational Division or inquiries about how more experiened players can become a recreational captain can be directed to Jason, the Recreational Division Coordinator:   We look forward to seeing you on the courts!
