CYO Girls Volleyball

3rd - 8th Grade

Registration: April 11, 2022


Players register directly through the school/parish program, not through CYO. The school/parish program then registers their teams into the league.

Games are scheduled Friday 5pm-9pm; Saturday 8am-6pm; and Sunday 1pm-7pm; with occasional week night games 5pm-9pm.

POST-SEASON: The top four teams in each division advance to post season play. The format for the single elimination playoff round is 1st place vs. 4th place; 2nd place vs. 3rd place; with the winners advancing to a single elimination championship round. If two teams finish with the same record, head-to-head results determine playoff eligibility and seeding. Trophies are awarded to the 1st place and 2nd place teams immediately following the championship game.

8TH GRADE ACHIEVEMENT GAME: Each 8th grade team may send one player to participate in an exhibition game at the conclusion of the season. All players receive a commemorative t-shirt.
