House Volleyball

ARAA Volleyball offers a fall house league designed for 3rd through 12th graders, placing emphasis on rules of the game, skill development, fun and equal play.  House leagues are ideal for those who are trying volleyball for the first time and for returning players who are looking to build and maintain their skills. 

  • Registration opens June 1st and closes August 1st.  ARAA Volleyball will only consider late registrations if there is space available.  ARAA Volleyball will not take any late registrants after the first week of the season.  
  • The season runs from early September through early November. 
  • Teams will be formed based on grade, player/coach requests, number of volunteer coaches and the number of players that register.  
  • Players are coached by volunteer coaches/parents. 
  • Practices and games are used to teach rules of the game,  passing, setting, hitting and serving.
  • Each team will be scheduled for approximately 1 hour, 2 nights a week between 5:45pm and 8:55pm.  (Ocassional 1 night/week based on gym availability)
  • 3rd through 6th grade is scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays.
  • 7th grade through High School age is scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Fall House Volleyball volunteer coaches needed!

Our volunteer coaches are vital to the success of our house volleyball program.  Volleyball experience or knowledge is not necessary as this is an introductory league.  ARAA Volleyball's goal is to assign 2 coaches to each team who would share responsibilities. Skills and rules coaching clinics hosted by Anoka High School Volleyball and ARAA Volleyball are provided, age appropriate practice plans/drills are distributed and each coach will have access to online coaching videos.  

Volunteer today and  support your local community through this fun and rewarding coaching opportunity! Sign up to coach during player registration or email  if you are interested. 

All coaches involved in ARAA are required to have yearly background checks completed.
