We need your help to continue to successfully run our BAA volunteer organization. We have training and mentors available for any position that you can assist with and if needed can pair volunteers to work together for scheduling needs. Please consider sharing your time and talents with us. Please assist at the games by Coaching/Co-Coaching, Scorekeeping, Referee, Line Judge. The more help we get, the more the players play, because we can keep the teams smaller.
We also have two very important Level Director position openings. Duties are administrative: setting up teams, answering questions, and helping with sign-ups and tournaments. As a level director, your BAA Volleyball player(s) will play volleyball free for your help!
EQUIPMENT: Shirts, volleyball, and nets will be provided by BAA. Tennis shoes and knee pads must be provided by players.

Cubs (3rd-5th Grade)
In the cub league, there are 6 team members on a side, with approximately 8 players per team. A player can serve a maximum of 4 points in a row, at which time the serve rotates to the next player. There is a city-wide tournament at the end of the season.
We are moving the serving line up 10’ and overhand serving is encouraged. There should already be a mark on the court at the 10’ line. Foot-faults at this line should be called. We have moved this line up to enable more play and to encourage overhand serving. As a player progresses in skill, they should be encouraged to move further back for their serves. Only the server may touch the ball before it crosses the net into play.
Midgets (6th-8th Grade)
In the midget league, athletes play 6 on a side, with approximately 8 players per team. A player can serve a maximum of 4 points in a row, at which point the serve rotates to the next player. There is a city-wide tournament at the end of the season.
Co-Rec (9th-12th Grade)
In the Bantam league, girls/boys play 6 to a side, with approximately 8 players per team. A player can serve a maximum of 4 points in a row, at which point the serve rotates to the next player. Teams will rotate players so that it is girl then boy vs two boys playing next to each other. There is a city-wide tournament at the end of the season.
Who we are:
Carri Sampson-Spande – BAA City Director–Volleyball
I signed my kids up for BAA sports when I moved to Bloomington in 2013. I find that community athletic leagues are a great way for the kids to make friends before starting a new school. I was asked to coach my daughter’s BAA volleyball team and thought it a great mistake. I’m not athletic! However, I really loved the program, being part of my daughter’s team and memories, and ended up helping out as the City Director. BAA is a great organization and I’m proud to be a part of it.
Mandy Geyen – BAA Volleyball Cubs Director (grades 3 – 5)
My Name is Mandy Geyen, I have 2 children who love to play in BAA activities. We have been apart of the Bloomington Community since 2006. I am excited to start my adventures as a Cub level director for BAA Volleyball. I look forward to meeting you and your family. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
