Spring Season Update

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

The schedule for the spring season has been released and is available from the Schedule menu as well as all portals. Coordinators need to make sure all rosters have been submitted by April 1st. All parents should fill out a Liability Waiver for their child in order for them to be eligible to play in the league. If your child played for a team in our fall season, you do NOT need to fill out another waiver. They are good for the entire school year.

Liability Waiver Form

Here are dates for the upcoming season:

  • May 13: Regular season ends
  • May 18-20: Single elimination tournament
  • Sep

    Season Ending Tournament

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    One weekend to go and planning for the season-ending tournament is almost complete.  Here is some information about the tournament:

    1. All teams are assumed to be playing in the tournament unless the league is notified by October 1st.
    2. The tournament will take place from Friday, October 20 through Sunday, October 22nd.
    3. This is a single elimination tournament so if a team wins the first two sets of a match, a third set will NOT be played.
    4. All 3rd/4th and 5th/6th rec divisions will be split into multiple tournament brackets so teams from the different pods will be grouped into Gold, Silver, Bronze, etc ... brackets based on their winning percentage (excluding forfeits) and a variety of other factors.  We did our best to reduce Friday travel but at the end of the day, we have a league that is very spread out.
    5. If you coach multiple teams, we made sure you could coach the first match of the tournament for both teams, but it is very difficult to do that for the entire tournament.  Please make sure you have an assistant ready to step in if both your teams continue to advance through the tournament.
    6. Individual medals will be given to the champion and runner-up teams in each bracket.
    7. COACHES, PLEASE POST YOUR MATCH SCORES IN A TIMELY MANNER DURING THE TOURNAMENT!

    If you have any questions about the tournament, please email [email protected]

    Fall Informational Meeting - May 11th

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    Volleyball Coordinators and Coaches,

    We would like to invite you to an informational meeting that will take place on Thursday, May 11 from 6:30pm – 8pm at the Springdale Community Center (11999 Lawnview Ave Springdale, OH 45246) in rooms Springdale 1 and 2.  The topic of the meeting will be the Fall 2017 Cincinnati Premier Youth Volleyball League season.  We hope that you or someone from your organization is able to attend this important meeting!  We have reached out to organizations that joined us for our inaugural fall 2016 and spring 2017 seasons as well as others in the Cincinnati volleyball community.

    We launched the CPYVL in the summer of 2016 to fill a void in the Greater Cincinnati area by providing a community-based youth volleyball league for kids in grades 3-8.  We provide league management, a full-featured web site, referee assignment, and provide a 10 game season schedule and single elimination tournament for $85 per team.  You provide the teams, a home gym for 5 games per team, and pay the referee at each match.  The goal is to provide opportunities for kids to play volleyball with friends in their community and grow their love of the sport.  During our inaugural season we had teams from the following communities join us:  Edgewood, Fairview-Clifton, Glendale, Hamilton, Indian Hill, Kings, Lakota, Little Miami, Loveland, Oak Hills, Seven Hills School, Waldorf School, and White Oak.  We hope to significantly grow our league this fall to provide less travel for recreational teams and more diverse competition for athletic teams.

    Here is a brief list of agenda items:

    1. CPYVL Overview – who we are and what we do
    2. Proposed timeline for the Fall 2017 season
    3. Discussion of Athletic and Recreational Divisions
    4. Proposed Rule Changes - Committee Formation
    5. Boys Divisions/High School Divisions
    6. Next steps

    We hope to see you there!

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    The fall 2017 season kicks off on Friday!! Good luck to everyone

    All teams can be viewed on the Standings page in their assigned division/pod. Please note that the 7th/8th grade teams will play some games against the 5th/6th grade athletic teams to round out their schedule. In addition, some of the teams in the central pod in the rec divisions will play a game or two against teams in other pods to provide for more schedule diversity for teams in the west, north, and east pods. We do not give out regular season awards so this will not impact a regular season championship and will give teams a more diverse schedule.

    Here is some information about the Fall 2017 season:

  • 10 match, 6 week season beginning the week after Labor Day and ending on October 15th
  • Post-season single elimination tournament on the weekend of October 21st
  • 81 total teams registered
  • Geographic pod scheduling for 3rd/4th and 5th/6th rec divisions
  • Single referee per match at a cost of $10 per team
  • Up to two 3rd-5th grade boys allowed per team. Boys must play up one grade.

    Game Change Notifications

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    Once the schedule for the fall season has been published, the league will activate game change notifications. From that point forward when a scheduled game has a change in location, a change in game time, or either of the two teams are changed, you can receive an email or SMS text message notification. In addition, when a new game is added to the schedule or a game is removed from the schedule, canceled, or postponed, you will also receive a notification

    In order to receive notifications, you must have a user account on the web site (click on the Register link in the upper left corner of the web site to create one). Simply choose the organization you are associated with and then choose the teams you want to follow (up to 5). You can then choose the types of notifications you would like to receive. Please make sure you enter a valid email address and if you want to receive SMS text message notifications that you enter a valid phone number including area code

    A quick note about game statuses. A game starts out as "scheduled" and then when the game has been completed it will change to "completed" or "forfeited" if one of the teams does not show up. If one of the teams cannot make the scheduled game but the game will be rescheduled, it will be placed in "postponed" status. If the location or time of a game is changed, the status of the game will be changed to "rescheduled".
