Program Overview

Becker Inferno JO Volleyball is a competitive program with the goal to provide a positive experience for all athletes in the program. The program will host a parent informational meeting TENTATIVELY on Wednesday, October 2nd at 6pm in the High School Small Auditorium.    Attendance is strongly recommended for players and parents. Players and parents will be provided a general overview of how the program works, answer any questions players and parents may have, given tryout dates, a review of the registration process, and an opportunity for players to try on uniforms for appropriate sizing. Online registration with payment is required prior to the tryout date, and NO REFUND will be issued after a player has completed tryouts and teams have been formed (refunds for medical reasons will be considered on an individual basis if no prior medical issue has been reported).  Online registration will open TENTATIVELY on Monday, Oct 2nd after the parent meeting.

Players 11U/12U and older must attend the evaluation tryout to be considered for team placement.  10U will NOT have tryouts.   Athletes are placed on teams based on their athletic abilities and skill level.  Athletes are placed on teams by their evaluation performance and positional needs are taken into consideration for the best opportunity for success for the team. Tryouts will be held TENTATIVELY on Monday, October 28th for levels 11U-14U at 7pm in the Field House and on Tuesday, November 12th at 7pm in the High School gym for levels 15U-18U.


A. INFERNO will form more than one team at each age classification when there are enough players to place at least ten (10) players on each team.  At the higher levels teams may be necessary to only have 9 players on a team.  

B. Teams at 11U and under will be selected based on a skill assessment for all players. If there are enough players for two or more teams, they will be divided based on skill level.

C. Teams at the 12U, 13U, 14U, 15U, 16U, 17U, & 18U will be selected based on a skill assessment for all players. If there are enough players for two or more teams, they will be divided based on evaluations. 

D. Skill assessment will be judged by impartial adults/coaches from communities outside of the Becker School District.

E. The competitive teams may participate in a higher-ability league than the players on the other two teams.

F. The players will not be placed on teams based on any reason other than skill and attitude. 

G. A 12U-17U player is eligible to move up a level if the following conditions are met:

1. The player completes evaluations for both levels

2. Must demonstrate emotional maturity for the older age classification.

H. Players will be assigned teams in the manner listed below.

* On competitive teams, the players that score in the top 8-10 will automatically be placed on the competitive team. The remaining players will be placed based on their skill level.


Any issues with playing time should always be handled by the player approaching the coach first. Playing time WILL NOT BE EQUAL for 12U and older girls; we promote equal time, if possible, at the 10U-11U level. 

-Winning occurs through mental attitude and physical ability, positive attitude, coaching, and teammates.

We will be coaching to win. This means putting the strongest team on the court during a tournament, and in particular, during the playoffs of a tournament.

All players will receive an equal opportunity to practice. Game play time will be based on skill level, practice intensity, missed practice time, attitude, and the position played may be a determining factor in playing time.

These are important guidelines for setting clear expectations for both players and parents. They will help us all have a positive experience during the JO volleyball season.


After your athlete has attempted to speak with the coach on their own, consider the following before acting further:

  • Coaches will not discuss “coaching decisions”. “Coaching decisions” include who played, who subbed, who served, etc. 
  • The playing time of an athlete is determined by the coach, the athlete’s ability, the athlete’s potential, the team’s needs at the present time, and the team’s needs in the future to foster success. 

Procedures to follow if you as a parent have concerns about policies or actions:

  1. Adhere to the 24-hour rule.
  2. Athletes should speak with the coach.
  3. If the matter remains unresolved after the athlete speaks to the coach, then the parent should set up a meeting to speak to the coach. **Parents are not to approach a coach during a tournament or play date; the coaches will be instructed to REFUSE to discuss any controversial matter and to refer the parent to the Becker Inferno JO Board of Directors.
  4. If the matter still remains unresolved, or if the parent has a reasonable concern that speaking to the coach will not resolve, the parent may contact the Becker Inferno JO Board of Directors and request a meeting with the coach and the members. In most situations, we will ask the athlete to attend the meeting as well.

*Players must treat their coach with respect. If problems persist, the player will be talked to by the coach. If the problems continue, the coach will talk to the player with the parents. Ongoing, inappropriate behavior may end in the termination of the player from the organization (with NO REFUND). 

The Becker Inferno JO Board of Directors consists of volunteers. 

The Board of Directors is responsible for the operations of the JO VB program, including finances, parent handbook, ordering equipment and uniforms, practice schedules, coach's clinics, and tournament registrations.
