Weeknight Leagues
Skyline volleyball leagues are played each weeknight in the summer. To join a league, you can choose your preferred night (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday) and you’ll play on that night weekly.

Different Program Levels
To keep games fun and competitive, you’ll choose the program that best fits your team’s skill level and what you’re looking to get out of the league. You can choose from: co-ed rec, co-ed intermediate lower, co-ed intermediate upper, advanced, women’s rec, women’s intermediate, young at heart (aka old timers), college (rec or intermediate), or high school (Sundays only).

Captains’ Meeting
The volleyball captains’ meeting will be Wednesday, May 1st starting at 6pm. Enjoy free pizza, meet our new league coordinator, and learn what’s new this year. This meeting is not required but encouraged for new teams. All are welcome (returning teams too!). If your captain can’t make it, bring a teammate or two!

2019 Summer Playoffs

Welcome to Volleyball Playoffs!

We are wrapping up our summer season and that means it is time for playoffs! Each team is seeded based on the regular season.

Captains & players have been emailed their division’s playoff bracket so find your team’s path to the championship! The brackets are color coordinated by week so keep this in mind when you are planning ahead. Yellow will be the first week (starting week of Aug 19), blue is the second week of playoffs (starting Aug 26), and then so on. The tournament will be double-elimination format so each team will be guaranteed 2 weeks of games. Reminder: before the playoffs begin, add all of your players to your roster to help us prevent any disputes when it comes to lineups! To update your roster, login to your LeagueApps account and invite players via email. Here’s a how-to blog post with more details for updating your roster (unfortunately, you can’t add players to your roster via the app yet). If you have any questions about your roster or your playoff schedule, give Kellen a call (218-727-8555) or email kbergs@skylinelanes.com. To view your volleyball playoff schedule, find the night you play on this playoff page, and the league you play in, and then download your division. Good luck!

League Definitions

Recreational League is by far our most popular; it includes new teams to the sport to those not quite ready for intermediate play. Based on its popularity we split teams into separate divisions, we do this in an effort to keep a similar style of teams together. We set the divisions based on turn out, prior standings, and your responses to our questions during the registration process. To help you gauge where your team might stack up, consider these general definitions:

  • REC NOVICE- is newer teams or people to the sport, primary goal is to have fun and socialize
  • REC MODERATE – is teams that have played together before, have a feel for the game, and our looking for a balance of competition and socialization
  • REC SKILLED – are teams that have played together before, understand the game, have a greater focus on competition, but are not quite ready for intermediate play

*Rec League must serve underhand

Young at Heart! This rec co-ed league (also known as “Old Timers” league) requires all players that are young at heart! This league was created for our life-long regulars who want to have some fun playing volleyball, but don’t want youngsters spiking the ball down on them.

*Must serve underhand

Intermediate Lower is our second most popular league it has a strong focus on competition and skill

Intermediate Upper is a league for people ready to take their game to the next level it features great teams and great competition

Advanced is the best of the best and is our most skilled league
*Max of 4 players

* Intermediate and above leagues have the option of serving overhand
