Meet the Director
Our desire for the league is to give glory to the Lord. To provide a fun, competitive league for the co-ed homeschool volleyball teams in the region. We encourage good sportsmanship, Godly leadership, trust and selflessness and fellowship among the teams. We encourage complimenting opponents during matches. We do not encourage rivalries. Our purpose is to demonstrate to others that friendly competition exists. We consider our league a developmental league.
Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do,
do all to the glory of God.
- I Corinthians 10:31
