Registration for the 2017-18 LRD adult winter volleyball leagues will be held starting on Monday September 18th thru Friday September 22, 2017 at the Recreation Office at 525 Pavement Road.

Registration will be for all of our adult leagues. Players must be 18 years and up to play in our men’s, women’s, and reverse coed leagues. Our men play on Tuesdays and Wednesday nights, our women on Wednesdays, and our reverse coeds on Thursdays, with all leagues starting in mid to late November, with divisions available for all skill levels.

As always, we are looking for new teams in all leagues.  Teams may have up to 4 nonresidents per team for an additional fee. Teams from the 2016-17 season will be contacted by mail. If you are an individual interested in playing, give us a call and we will forward your name if there are teams looking for players.
