Registration for the Spring 2017 Steel City Volleyball is Open!

Welcome to the Winter 2017 Registration!

Since moving to Pittsburgh Elite, our league has grown significantly. In order to maintain a well-running league, the Board has made some changes to the registration process about which we would like to update you. We have strived to balance many league priorities, such as social cohesion, maximizing play time, encouraging cross-division mentorship, and openness to new players.

The upcoming changes you need to know are:

– Only returning, full-time members will have the choice to play in 2 divisions. New players must wait until their 2nd season at SCVL. All part-time members will be permitted to play in only 1 division.

– A cap on total players will be implemented based on the limits of the facility; we anticipate being able to accommodate all current players if they register during the early registration period.

– Each team may have 1 bye week during the season, based on limits of the facility.

– Past SCVL members will have early registration access

– Early Bird rates will be extended to everyone for this season (subject to change in future seasons).

– Tryouts/Ratings are Sunday Jan 8 and Sunday Jan 15.

Steel City Volleyball Announces Fall Season!

New Divisions
A new, fifth division will be offered this season that we expect will help lead to a more-consistent level of play in each division while still preserving, as much as possible, opportunities for social interaction. Please see the new rubric for more detailed descriptions of each division. Some players have been automatically moved into a new higher division as a result of the division changes. Please check the new division rosters before registering. If you have been moved into a higher division, there is no need to attend try-outs to challenge your rating.

If you are new to the league and don’t know much about how we do things, here is a brief description of what to expect during the first two weeks for tryouts.

The SCVL offers four levels of play: Recreational, Setter, Spiker and Power. We would like you to select the division where you would like to be placed and join us at the Greentree Sportsplex for that tryout session. During the sessions, basic skills will be observed and pick-up games will be played in order to assess your skill level and determine if you should be placed in that division or assigned to another division. If you want to play in the Recreational Division you do not need to attend the tryouts. If you are NEW to the league (haven’t played in either the Winter 2013 or Fall 2013 season) and you want to play in Setter, Spiker, or Power, or you want to CHALLENGE your rating, you must participate in try-outs.

A brief description of the SCVL divisions:

Recreational
Beginner/Novice – players who have limited experience and are learning to pass, set and hit.

Setter
Intermediate – Players know the basics and are learning/practicing advance techniques and court positioning. With each possession there is an attempt to pass, set and hit. Designated setters are typically used, and they almost always come from the front line (4-2 offense). Play is more competitive than recreational.

Spiker
Competitive play – Players have a good understanding of the game and its objectives. This level of play executes good court coverage, ball distribution and service strategies. Each team will have a number of strong hitters and a setter. Teams typically play with a 5-1 offense.

Power
Advanced Competitive play – Players at this level are able to serve with power, control and placement. On hits, players have the ability to alter direction, depth and speed of hits. The hitter may also use a dink or roll to put the ball down. Each team will have strong hitters and experienced setters. Teams typically run a 5-1 offense. Play is fast-paced. They have in depth knowledge of offensive and defensive game play, and use advanced strategies to be successful.

See you on the court!
