  • Corner of Church & American Streets in Catasauqua, PA 18032 (with parking on American Street).
  • This is the first ever WILD CARD event!

    "What does that mean" you ask?

    Its easy, once a month, a WILD CARD event will take place.  During the event a "competition" will be launched and a prize is awarded for the best WILD CARD participant.

    The WILD CARD event will always be posted at least 1 week in advance.  The competition is open to any volleyball players whom attend the Tuesday volleyball.

    This week's WILD CARD event is "BEST HAT".  Bring and wear your best hat for the entirety of play.

    Judges (two will be randomly selected) will critique you on the following criteria:

    Most creative (you are limited only by your imagination).  Make it, buy it, break it, add stuff to it, you can even make it part of a larger concept.

    Remember it's a competition so you'll also be judged on how long you wear your hat too.

     

    Bring it on!!!

    ***********************************************************************

    TUESDAY NIGHT VOLLEYBALL IS BACK!! This is the 2nd year in a row and I'm hoping attendance this year will continue to be just as booming hot as it was last summer.

    RECAP NOTES:

    Last summer was a true success and a BIG HIT!  We played at 6pm sharp, some nights, going until 10pm/11pm.  This group demonstrated a desire for co-operation through working as a team, we had minimal drama because cliques are non-existant, and our injury record was 0.  Experienced players did not refrain from engaging in teachable moments with newer players.

    However, it is important to remember this is volleyball and not "slap ball".  Players should promote a modest effort to honor the traditional 3-hits, however, this is not an absolute requirement nor will anyone be chastised for occasionally hitting the ball over with one hit.

    CHANGES FOR THIS SEASON:

    - Rules will be a little more slack (i.e. nets and dinks).

    - Players should come prepared with knowledge of basic play concepts (i.e. bump, set, hit).

    Unfortunately the rain will not let up tonight. Volleyball is reluctantly canceled. The Wild Card event will take place next week. See everyone then.

    Hi everyone, the weather isn't looking too promising for tonight, however, I am not prepared to call it quits just yet. I will keep monitoring the weather stations and will have a definitive answer by 5pm.
    As always, please be sensitive to your RSVP status for those in the waiting list and bring your hats!

    Very familiar, I dont play that regular, so my accuracy may not perfect, the only term I may not be as familiar wotg is bump. I am very athletic though, I train everyday

    Hey Joel, as a beginner to the sport, are you familiar with the bump, set, spike concept? It's not a problem if you are not. In the case if the latter, please come a half hour earlier and I'm happy to share a crash course with you.
