HARRISBURG, SD – BSYBL, Inc. announced today the inception of the Big Sioux Youth Volleyball League. Set to begin play this fall at facilities in the Harrisburg School District, Big Sioux Youth Volleyball is open to girls who will be in the 4th, 5th and 6th grade.
Following the success of Big Sioux Youth Basketball, which began in 2007, and to further grow the sport of volleyball in the state of South Dakota, this youth volleyball program comes to fruition in Harrisburg and its surrounding area.
The sport of volleyball is defined as a game played by volleying an inflated ball over a net. However, to many young athletes nation-wide, this sport is so much more. It’s a safe and fun place to spend time with friends while achieving a common goal. It’s an outlet to compete and learn from successes and failures. It’s an environment that encourages teamwork, cooperation, and perseverance.
Advanced registration for Big Sioux Youth Volleyball opens April 1, 2018. For further league information, visit BSYVL.com.
Group A Tournament (3rd-6th Grade Boys) - Saturday, Feb 24
Group B Tournament (Girls & 2nd Grade Boys)- Saturday, Mar 3
Every team will be guaranteed to play (2) games in the tournament, just like regular season Saturdays. If a team keeps winning, they will keep playing throughout the day. The only exception to this rule is if the #1 seed has a bye in the first round. That will count as their first game of the day.
Brackets will be created based on win/loss records, accumulated points, points allowed, etc. Teams will be bracketed by divisions, meaning the teams you have been playing all year will be the same teams you will compete with in the tournament. The playing divisions were created at the beginning of the season and have been consistent throughout regular season play, thus will stay consistent for the tournament.
