LEAGUES

Outdoor Volleyball Leagues

Gainesville Volleyball specializes in outdoor volleyball. Currently, all leagues take place on the sand, with the intent to expand to grass in the near future as well. We offer both social and competitive leagues, so you can pick your best fit. Players are welcome to play in both leagues in Fall 2022 due to the different nights / different formats!

Sand Volleyball Coed 4’s Social League Rules 

Take a look at our coed 4’s social league rules before you hit the sand! You will have a referee supervising your match each week, but the social league has some significant differences from standard AVP beach rules, indoor rules, and tournament rules. 

 

These rules are designed to ensure players of all levels are comfortable and safe. Our rules also cover important aspects related to team expectations to make sure our matches start on time and are fair for all! 

We all know Florida weather can be unpredictable - we will make every effort to play through moderate rain but will cancel for severe lightning or unplayable court conditions at the discretion of the league directors. If we have to cancel a league night due to weather, a makeup match is not guaranteed.
