Uniforms
You MUST indicate a jersey size on your online registration form for your registration to be considered complete. Samples are in the Mudsock Youth Athletics’ office for your child to try on before ordering. Please call 317-845-5582 or email [email protected] if you would like to make an appointment to try on a jersey. They are fitted and we encourage you to do so; we will not reorder shirts if you ordered the wrong size. The only uniform requirement is the jersey included in the fee.

You are responsible for providing your player’s shorts, knee pads and gym shoes.

Sponsors
Securing team sponsors from the area businesses helps offset the cost of our jerseys. The cost to sponsor a team is $275 or you can sponsor two teams for $500. If you know of a business that would like to advertise in this way, please contact the Mudsock Youth Athletics office at [email protected]

Team Assignments
The league commissioner will form teams based on grade level. Coaches for grades 4-6 will contact their teams the first week of August. In our league, we combine the 7th and 8th grades for our Junior High Division. At this level, even if you are interested in trying out for your school team, you MUST register for our league in May in order to ensure a spot in the league. Registrants who make the school team will receive a full refund by contacting the Mudsock Youth Athletics office. MYA will have the school team rosters to verify your refund. Those who are NOT trying out for the junior high school teams will be involved in clinic-style group practices with us until the conclusion of school try-outs. Because of the time frame of the junior high school try-outs, the teams for 7th and 8th graders cannot be formed until after school starts.

Player Request Policy
The purpose of our league is to instruct players in the fundamentals of volleyball and, of course, to have fun! We realize kids may like to be on the same team as their friends, but we do  not take requests for friends or coaches. The only exception is siblings, who will be on the same team if noted during registration. For the 2022 season, we will also consider, but not guarantee, one mutual carpool request; carpool requests MUST be submitted by BOTH parties when registering to be considered.

Coaches
Coaches are volunteers who must be trained through a mandatory coaches’ clinic to be scheduled shortly before the season – typically the last weekend in July. Ideally, we like to have two coaches per team. All coaches must have a background check on file and complete concussion training.  Please note that requested days and times for practices will be considered, but not guaranteed, for coaches.

Practices/Matches
The season will begin with Saturday practices on August 6 and August 13. Weeknight practices begin the week of August 15. The first match will be played on August 20. There will be no games Labor Day weekend. Practices take place one night per week. The end of season tournament is scheduled for October 6, 7 and 8.We do not know the full tournament schedule details at this time, but we will post it on the Mudsock Youth Volleyball website once it’s confirmed. The practice and match schedules will be posted in Sports Connect as soon as we receive our allotted court space from the schools. We do not control how far in advance we get this information.

Volunteers
For every match, each team provides an adult (age 18+) scorekeeper and line judge.  Please help your coaches and volunteer at least once during the season. We could use help too…we generally set up equipment for Saturday matches on Friday evening for about an hour. This involves getting chairs out, and setting up nets, official stands, and scorekeeping tables. If this is a way you can contribute to our league, please let us know!Also, we are always looking for engaged individuals to help us continue offering this recreational league to our community.  If you are interested in joining the MYA Volleyball Board, please contact [email protected]

Pictures
Professional team and individual pictures will be taken on a Saturday to be determined during league play.Facilities Our practices and matches are restricted to the use of the school gyms. In order to respect school policies, please keep siblings and other children with you and from being anywhere other than the gym. No food or drinks, except water, are allowed in the gyms.      This policy is for players as well as spectators. Keeping the school gyms clean helps keep costs down by not incurring additional custodial fees. Thank you for helping us maintain our good relationship with the schools.
