NIVA offers 4 different programs to choose from:

1.  NON-TRAVEL/CLUB/FEEDER TEAMS
*For girls and boys in 3rd-8th grade
*Players play for a "feeder" program that is run by someone involved with the junior high or high school volleyball program
*Players should play for the feeder that is the name of the high school they will eventually attend
*If a player's high school is not listed, they will play for the INDEPENDENT FEEDER, which is comprised of girls who will go to a high school that does not have a coach running a program with us (Penn, Mishawaka, South Bend, Catholic and private schools, etc.)
*Each feeder program sets their own dates for the informational meeting and tryouts...we will post this on the tab for that feeder once we have it (usually late October)
*Teams practice 1x a week, sometimes 2 if the coach and gym space are available.  Practices generally start in December and run through March.  Each feeder program and team sets their own practice schedule and uses gyms that are in their own school district so girls will be close to home for practices.
*Teams play in the Northern Indiana Power League.  These are local tournaments on 6 Sundays from January-March (exact dates TBA but will be posted under the "Power League Info" tab. Teams will rotate where they play each tournament but usual schools that hose are Goshen, Memorial, Concord, Marian, Northridge, John Glenn (and some others).  Schedules are posted by the Wednesday before the play date on our website.
