Please read prerequisites prior to registering

 Our goal is to group players of a similar caliber.  If your player is registered  for a group which is not instructionally appropriate we will move them to the correct group so they are able to fully participate and enjoy their volleyball experience. If the session you are interested in is full, please ask to be added to the waitlist. Please do not register for a different session expecting to be moved into the session which is labeled "full". If you have questions, contact Ali Jaber at ali.madisonignite@gmail,com
