2022 Winter Volleyball League Information:
Lincolnton Parks and Recreation offers an instructional volleyball league for girls ages 8 - 17 that stresses the fundamental skills of the sport and teamwork. We strive to provide all children with a fun and positive team experience without the pressure to win or excel as an individual.
Practices are held at the Lentz Recreation Center (800 Madison St., Lincolnton, NC 28092) and possibly, Love Memorial Elementary School (1463 Love Memorial School Rd., Lincolnton, NC 28092). All games will be held at the Lentz Recreation Center. Games will be on Monday, Thursday, Friday evenings, and/or Saturday mornings. Practices could be any day during the week and weekend Monday-Sunday.
Registration can be completed online or in-person at the Lentz Recreation Center during regular office hours (M-F, 9a-5p). Registration cost covers the cost of the uniform shirt and knee pads which will be given to the player by coaches before the team’s first game.

Evaluations are required for players who have not evaluated with us previously or did not play with us in the 2021 Winter season or the 2021 Summer Season. More information below.
After evaluations are finished, coaches will meet with the Volleyball Program Coordinator on November 30th or December 1st to discuss rules for the league, league modifications, as well as team divisions. Once teams are divided and contacts are given to coaches, coaches will begin contacting parents to inform them of their practice schedules. Practices will begin the week of December 13th. Each team will practice 1-2 times per week (depending on gym availability after registration is complete). Games will begin January 10th. There will be a tournament at the end of the season for each age group. The season will finish no later than February 26th.
Mandatory evaluations will be held if the participant did not play with the City of Lincolnton Parks & Recreation Department during the Winter 2021 season or the Summer 2021 season. Evaluation times will be listed on the registration forms. Players that are evaluating will only attend one of the evaluation days. Evaluations will be held at the Lentz Recreation Center Gym at Betty G Ross Park (800 Madison St, Lincolnton, NC 28092).
Volunteer coaches are needed in this league. Their duties will be to lead their team during practice and games to better understand the game of volleyball, encourage teamwork and team building, and to handle the safety measures required of them (as mentioned above). Volunteer coaches have to complete a coaching application that includes coach conduct material as well as information for a background check that is completed by the City of Lincolnton Human Resources Department. Head coaches for a team will receive a $10.00 account credit added to your account once coaching application has been approved by the City of Lincolnton. This credit is given to a coach per team coached.
