Competitive Indoor Volleyball (CC+/B-/B:): Kratos Libertyville

Cost is $7 CASH ONLY - Doors open at 6:45 to start warming up.  We're limiting to 24 spots for the 2 CC+ nets.  We can add a 3rd net once attendance starts to grow.  If the CC+ event is full, please add yourself to the waitlist.  You can also play at the C+ level if available (there's a separate event listed).

THIS FACILITY USES SPORT COURT FLOORING.  VOLLEYBALL SHOES ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  YOU MUST WEAR CLEAN GYM SHOES ON THE COURT.  STREET SHOES ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE.  YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE COURT WITH DIRTY SHOES.

There are 2 CC+ level nets available. This event has a limited number of players to ensure we don't have too many attendees.  You must RSVP if you plan to attend.  There is a wait list in case the event fills up.  Meetup will automatically notify you if a spot opens up, and it will automatically RSVP you (first come, first served).  If you show up, and aren't RSVP'd, you'll be asked to leave.

If you can't make it, please adjust your RSVP so someone can take the spot.  If you repeatedly no-show, we'll ban you from attending.

The gym closes at 10, and you need to be ready to walk out with your stuff at 10.  Not 10:05.

Please make sure your skill level meets our CC+ or higher requirement.  There is a separate signup for our C+/CC-/C or higher net.

If you aren't SURE that this event is appropriate for you, please ask prior to signing up, or sign up for the C+ net.  We reserve the right to move players to the appropriate net to keep games safe, competitive, and fun.

Here is the definition of CC & B level for our group:

CC: Players here know the basics and are learning / practicing advanced techniques and court positioning. With each possession there is an attempt to pass, set and attack (spike) the ball. Passes and sets are made to a target at a rate of over 65%. Players usually overhand serve with some control, and while typically getting the ball in play (over 80%), still make errors when attempting to do so with power. Attacks are more controlled but frequently are still weak (more like roll shots than hits down), and while designated setters are now being used, they almost exclusively come from the front line. Play is more consistent but frequently there are breakdowns in terms of power and control. Players are more competitive here but generally have not played for a long time and have a tendency to overestimate their skill levels and strengths.

B: Players at this level and above are competitive and play year round. Play is skilled, but needs to improve in consistency. Almost exclusively play within a 6-2 / 5-1 scheme. Each player can pass, set, and attack, but there are some issues with control and speed. Players pass and set to a target at a rate of over 85%. They serve with power and accuracy (but not yet for aces or return errors). Most attacks are hit downward with power – landing generally in the back third of the court. Periodically, roll shots and dinks are also seen. Single blocks are attempted on almost every attack, and occasionally double blocks are executed successfully. Everybody here knows the game well, sees the whole court in order to execute plays.
