Competitive 4s

The Blizzard 4 ON 4 – Indoor Volleyball League

Our competitive indoor 4 on 4 volleyball league is an “open” division designed for athletes 13-17 years old who have a good understanding of the game. This is a great off-season league for club players and future club players! Girls will put together and enter their own teams with a parent representative, who will be the point of contact for their team. That parent must also be present at any practices the team attends and at any matches. Teams may roster 4 or 5 girls between the ages of 13-17.

Avalanche club coaches will hold non-mandatory training nights throughout the season to help athletes with skill sets, rotations, and strategies as it pertains to 4s. Trainings are typically held at ASC, our competitive training facility. Matches are played on Saturdays in the fall and Thursdays during the summers at the Thunderbirds BGCS, immediately following any developmental programming. Matches are “monitored” and scored by Avalanche officials.

Rules

League play rules will follow basic USAV indoor 6 on 6 rules with a few exceptions noted below:

  1. You do not have to rotate your players around the court, but you must rotate your servers.
  2. Once a player serves, that player must serve each rotation for the entire set. If playing with 5 athletes (meaning you have a sub) only 4 athletes may serve per set. You may switch servers and or service order between sets.
  3. Rosters are capped at 5 athletes per team and may not be changed after week one of the season.
  4. All matches are played best 2 out of 3 sets to 25. A third set is played to 15 if needed. No point cap.

Athletes may play in multiple divisions within Avalanche Athletics.

Athletes from other clubs are welcome and encouraged to build teams and compete.
