Junior Jays Volleyball

Junior Jays is a traveling volleyball program where players are split up based on age. The program focuses on introducing, developing, and maintaining basic volleyball skills such as passing, serving, setting, hitting, and teamwork.


  • Traveling teams will be divided by four grade levels, 4-5th, 6th, 7th and 8th
  • 2-3 volunteer parent coaches will be needed for each team (volunteers are subject to a mandatory background check by the MAPS school district)
  • All athletes will be placed on a team providing we have enough coaches volunteer
  • Tournaments are held on Saturdays in local communities
  • Each team will enter 3-4 tournaments (1 of those tournaments may be hosted in Merrill)
  • If a tournament is held in Merrill, families of the players are required to help with that tournament
  • This opportunity is offered through WIVL, the Wisconsin Independent Volleyball League (a subdivision of the Great Northwest Basketball League) -- http://gnbl.org/
  • The cost to join a traveling team is $60.00 per athlete. Due to entry fees and t-shirt orders, NO REFUNDS will be issued unless an injury prevents the player from participating in the first practice.
  • Practice attire should include t-shirt, shorts/spandex, tennis shoes and kneepads.
