New Member FAQ

How do I join LSVA?

The first step to join is to create an account. New members are automatically unrated, which just means we are unsure of your skill level and can't give you a rating yet. You can create your account here

What is a rating or division?

In LSVA members currently play in one of five divisions: Power, Advanced, Competitive, Recreational or our new Masters Division. When a new member joins, or when a current member desires a new rating, they attend a new member/evaluation clinic. During the clinic, new members are evaluated and given a numerical rating corresponding to four divisions: Power, Advanced, Competitive, or Recreational. After receiving their rating, a member is then allowed to play in the corresponding division. Members who wish to play in our Masters Division must be over age 35 and must have played in a competitive volleyball for over 5 years. Curious as to how we evaluate members? Check out our Evaluation Guidelines.

What is play format?

LSVA essentially has four seasons: Summer and Winter Open Play, and Fall and Spring League. Open play is a pick-up game format; people show up, we randomly pick teams (based on division), and play. League is an assigned-team format. Normally, members sign up for the league in advance and are then drafted onto teams (based on division). Our league seasons last about 12 weeks: 10 weeks of play and 2 weeks of tournament.  

When and where do we play?

We play on almost every Sunday from 5:30 pm - 9:30pm at The Zone Sportsplex. No, not the entire time. We have two 2-hour sessions, divided by division. You can check our play schedule by clicking on Play. Please arrive early to warm up, as play starts right on time.

Where do my fees go?

LSVA is a nonprofit corporation managed by a volunteer board directors elected by the membership with Division Officers and several Committees. Dues mainly pay for the facility, but also pay for equipment, t-shirts, etc. As a nonprofit, LSVA strives to maintain a transparent relationship with its members. Inspection of our books and records is proudly shared at any member's request.
