Littleton Youth Sports Volleyball participates in the Arapahoe Youth League (AYL). We offer teams for boys & girls ages 5-14. We are a developmental volleyball league stressing the fundamental volleyball skills, sportsmanship and fun. We strive to provide a true sports academy for athletes to learn to play and love the sport, and to develop coaches to make this goal possible.
Teams are organized by grade level. 1st grade & Under, 2nd-7th grade, and Senior (8th & 9th Graders). There are two divisions of play at each level (AFC & NFC). Players are allowed to play up one grade level but may not play down a grade level. This is a coed program. To develop the K/1 players, the emphasis is on having fun while learning the very basic skills of volleyball. To help insure this, scores are not kept, teams will play using a 45 minute continuous running clock, and players continuously rotate through each of the four positions on the court. For grades 2nd & up, volleyball matches consist of three games to 21 points while using a continuous running clock of 55 minutes.
Volleyball used by grade level:
- 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade: Oversized Trainer
- 4th, 5th, 6th grade: Volleyball Lite
- 7th, 8th, 9th grade: Any high school approved regulation volleyball
- 1st Grade: 30' x 40'
- 2nd-9th Grades: 30' x 60'

Matches are played on Saturdays. Each team will play eight (8) regular season games begin March 9 and play through mid May. All teams are invited to participate in the postseason volleyball tournament. The tournament is single elimination with the championship games to be played May 18.
Game Location is the Momentum Fieldhouse, 7347 Revere Parkway, Suite 100 Unit A & B, Centennial 80112. When going to that facility - please use the entrance on the north side of the building complex.
