I am so excited to Open the Official Registration for Session 1 of the 2023 Waves Grassroots Volleyball Season. (Finally !)
The first practice of Session 1 will be January 8th at the UWF HLS Building.
If you are interested in playing this season, please read all the details — (we have had to make a few changes on facilities) and follow all 3 Steps below to complete registration:
|*Must have Sports Engine Account to be able to complete the USAV registration.|
**Note: The first membership option available: 22-23 Gulf Coast Junior 17 & Under Player, is a $90 registration fee is not required.

These are anticipated times and may shift slightly to accommodate numbers. Weeknight practices will not go beyond 8:30pm. Sunday practices should not start before noon. Additional facilities may be added.
**Also note, tournaments start in waves. If your child’s team draws the late wave (starting at 6pm), they may be playing until possibly 8:30pm on Sunday night. This happened frequently last season for the 11’s and 12s.
First Practice – Sunday @ UWF – Health Leisures & Sports Building (Bldg. 72)
