Registration for Fall Boys Volleyball is Now Open
by posted 08/01/2019


Registration is now open for the Boys Volleyball Fall 2019 season!  Last year, over 140 boys had a blast playing in the program.  Here is the link on the MYA Volleyball website to register.

MYA Boys Volleyball teams play in the NoVA Boys Volleyball League which includes teams from around Fairfax County.

Available Leagues

  • 4th-6th Grade – Elementary School League
  • 7th-8th Grade –  Middle School League
  • 9th-12th Grade – (High School boys can play volleyball this fall in the separate Northern Virginia High School Boys Volleyball League (NVHSBVL) with teams representing McLean HS, Langley HS, Madison HS, Marshall HS and other local schoolsContact Commissioner for details.)

The MYA Boys Volleyball commitment is student friendly and multi-sport friendly:

  • One week of instructional clinics at the beginning of the season to develop or refresh core volleyball skills such as passing, setting, hitting and serving
  • 1 team practice per week (1.5 hrs) on a weekday in McLean-area gym
  • 1 league match per week (1 hr) on Saturdays against other boys teams
  • Practice days, times and locations are determined by coaches (a good reason to volunteer to coach) – during registration players can identify preferred days, times and locations
  • The program is open to all interested boys, not just those living in McLean

MYA Volleyball is 100% volunteer and needs Volunteer Coaches.  Please consider coaching -- it is a great way to be part of your son’s exposure and positive experience with the sport.  Prior coaching and volleyball playing experience are a plus, but not required -- training, mentoring and supporting materials are provided by MYA Volleyball.

For additional information and registration, visit the MYA Volleyball website at http://www.mcleanvolleyball.org/.

Please forward this message to anyone you believe would be interested in participating in this great sport.

We hope to see you on the court soon!

Donate to Help Bring Sand Volleyball Courts to Spring Hill REC

Help Bring Sand Volleyball to the Spring Hill RECenter

Good News. McLean Youth Volleyball is partnering with the Spring Hill RECenter to build two (2) SAND VOLLEYBALL COURTS on the RECenter property.  The planned location will be in the open field adjacent to the pool sun deck and baseball diamond.  

This is an exciting development that will bring high quality sand courts to the community and open up options for additional McLean Youth Volleyball programs.  Sand Volleyball is already a popular Olympic sport and currently the fastest growing NCAA sport, expanding 10% annually.

The goal is to raise about $15K through private donations that the Fairfax County Park Authority will match with public funds. 

If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation, please use the following form on the MYV website: http://assn.la/UserForm.asp?RegID=164496&org=MCLEANVOLLEYBALL.ORG

We welcome whatever amount you are comfortable donating ($20, $50, $100 or more). 

Thank you!

Chuck Pruitt, Director
McLean Youth Volleyball

Congratulations to MYV's Vicki Gilmer: Champion of Character
by posted 10/20/2018


Congratulations to our own Vicki Gilmer for winning the prestigious Fairfax County Champion of Character award on October 15, 2018 for her amazing contributions to McLean Youth Volleyball.

Here's the next of her nomination read out during the ceremony.

Vicki Gilmer embodies all the good qualities of a youth sports volunteer. 

Over the past several years, she has been one of the most popular MYA volleyball coaches leading at least two girl’s teams in separate leagues each season.  Vicki routinely goes beyond teaching volleyball skills, gameplay and sportsmanship by providing support and mentoring off the court to her players.  Her teams feel more like inclusive families where her caring and compassionate approach fosters mutual trust, respect and life-long friendships. 

Vicki’s passion for helping youth sports goes beyond coaching.  She regularly volunteers as the Age-Group Coordinator for two leagues working with fellow coaches and parents to ensure that all aspects of each league (rosters, schedules, matches) run smoothly, and they always do.  In fact, she was the force behind starting a new league for High School girls to continue enjoying the sport and playing with their friends.  Behind her leadership, HS House has blossomed into the most popular MYA Volleyball league with over 16 teams and 160 girls this past spring. 

For all her contributions as a youth coach, leader and mentor, Vicki Gilmer is unquestionably a Champion of Character.

Way to go, Vicki!!
