Adult Chairperson

Steve Covert ELECTED TERM: 2012-2014

I am looking for 3 members to serve as an official adult committee to help get things rolling if interested please email me and I'll put you on the committee

2012 US Nationals

CONGRATULATIONS to all of our Keystone teams!!

The KRVA Board has approved splitting the adult season into two seperate seasons Fellowship which will run from October 1st until May 6th and National which will run from May 6th until June 10th

For the fellowship season we will have no rosters so you can move from team to team and pick up players from other areas. Uniforms only require a t-shirt with a number on it ,Libero must be contrasting, Do not register with the region. All events will be unsanctioned so you are PLAYING AT YOUR OWN RISK.

National session will be for those teams heading to the US Open, WE will help you get registered and full usav requirements will need to be met. Once you have played for most of the 2013 season and have decided that you want to attend the US open that is when you will register with the region.

I have also contacted the MAC mens club, EIVA mens club and New England womens Clubprograms and as they sponser events I will post them here at the bottom under tournaments

Good luck this year and let's get the adults playing again

Any one wishing to serve as a team representive please email me and I will set you up with information. I will list all Captians here with Location, Playing division, email, phone number. You will also be listed in the adult email chain so you recieve information for all upcoming events.

News Release

Playing Levels Defined

In all areas of the country there are primarily 5 levels of adult volleyball competitiveness. They are Beginner, B, BB, A, and AA. (Well, there are 6 if you add in professional/Olympic.) These are classifications that are used by USAVolleyball, the United States' governing body for adult non-professional volleyball. I googled around the web to find definitions for these levels and could not find any. This is an attempt to define these classifications. If one were to call themselves a BB player, that may be interpreted differently if they were in, say, Hawaii or Southern California than if they were in Georgia or South Carolina. No offense to GA or SC but things are different around the country in volleyball. But generally, the definitions below can be used. I encourage you to please discuss this if you feel differently. Recreational- A "Recreational" player is a Beginner. A Recreational player should know the basics of volleyball, and played some volleyball before, but he/she is just beginning to bump, set, and spike. A Recreational player should not RSVP to an event which includes "BB" or "A" level or Advanced players. B- - A "B" player is still in the early learning stages of the game but knows the skills. A "B" player knows how to bump, set (a little), and spike. But a "B" player has a lot of practice yet to go to be able to do these skills consistently. A "B" player makes mistakes often. BB- A "BB" player knows where to be on the court at all times when plays are developing. He/she knows where to be when the opponent is hitting. A "BB" player knows the footwork of and how to approach hitting effectively. A "BB" player knows how to run a 5-1, a 6-2, and needlessly, a 4-2. To see videos of BB level volleyball click here or here. A- An "A" player is somewhere between "BB" and "AA". They know all the skills extremely well but cannot always execute the super-high level plays extremely effectively all the time. "A" players can run combination plays in a basic way if passes are good. That includes slides, tandems, x's, crosses, and back-row hitting. AA/Open - Nearly Olympic. Or at least able to dig an Olympic Player's attack hit or able to once in a while put a ball down as a hitter against an Olympic Team. OK. No one can ever put a ball down against an Olympic defense. But an adult AA team of players would be able to beat a college Division I team of their same sex at least some of the time.
