Littleton Youth Sports Volleyball participates in the Arapahoe Youth League (AYL). 

We offer Co-ed teams for K - 8th grades. 

We are a developmental volleyball league stressing the fundamental volleyball skills, sportsmanship and fun. 

We strive to provide a true sports academy for athletes to learn to play and love the sport, and to develop coaches to make this goal possible.

Teams are organized by grade level. 

K - 8th grades

K, 1st & 2nd graders are placed together on the same team. Players are allowed to play up one grade level but may not play down a grade level.  This is a coed program.  Volleyball matches consist of three games to 21 points while using a continuous running clock of 55 minutes.

  • K, 1st & 2nd graders:  Oversized Trainer
  • 3rd-6th Grades:  Volleylite
  • 7th & 8th Grades:  Any high school approved regulation volleyball

The Season:

Matches during the season will be played on Saturdays (and depending on the number of teams in the entire league, some games may be played on Friday nights) in March and April. Each team will play 8 regular season games. The entire season will last approximately 11 weeks.  The tournament is single elimination.

Teams for grades 5,6,7,8 will play in the Crossroads AYL Tournament early March  - this will allow for atleast 4 more games.
