Welcome to Vienna Youth Volleyball

Vienna Youth (VYI) Volleyball was formed in 2009 to meet the growing demand for youth volleyball in Northern Virginia.  The program is coed (girls and boys) in 4th-6th grade, and girls only in 7th-8th grade. We offer high school girls options in spring.

VYI offers play at all skill levels, from beginner to advanced/travel level. VYI does not currently offer a Boys only league or a CHRVA club team. See below for a guide to the various leagues, clinics, and skill level definitions.
