MIDDLE SCHOOL SHORT SEASON

Our short season middle school program is ideal for eighth- to fifth-grade girls who either:

  • play school volleyball but haven’t played club volleyball before

  • are new to club and school volleyball

  • can't commit to a full club season

  • play other sports in addition to volleyball

  • only want to participate in a short-term season

  • don’t want to pay the fees for a full club season

Serve City offers short season middle school teams in Elgin and Wheaton.

Our Elgin short seasons are from November 28 to February 9 (season #1) and February 11 to April 20 (season #2). Our Elgin short season teams practice at Harvest Christian Academy (1000 N.

Our Wheaton short season is from March 4 to May 11. Our Wheaton teams practice at Vineyard Church (1900 Manchester Rd., Wheaton) and Community Fellowship Church (28W240 North Avenue, West Chicago).
