Team Overview

The Cretin-Derham Hall Volleyball program consists of one team at the varsity, junior varsity and B-squad levels. Typically, there have been three 9th grade teams consisting of 12 to 15 players. If the number of athletes trying out for the 9th grade team exceeds 15 players per team, the experience of learning and game situations will decrease for all involved and cuts may occur. Previous volleyball experience is necessary for those considering trying out for volleyball at the B-squad, JV, and Varsity levels.

The varsity volleyball season begins Monday, August 14, 2017 and is 13 weeks in length with 17 regular season contests followed by playoffs. JV, B-squad and 9th grade teams compete for 11 weeks with 17 dates of competition. 9th grade teams are allowed additional dates and may have more than 17 dates of competition. When school is in session, volleyball practice ranges from 3:15-5:30 pm Monday-Thursday and 2:45-5:30 pm on Friday. There will be several weekend practices and tournaments for all levels.
