Fall volleyball league forming

Students interested in jumping, setting and spiking will want to register for the upcoming volleyball season.

Registration for the 2013 fall season of 6-o- 6 coed volleyball is now open through 5 p.m. Nov. 5, said Matthew Wright, intramural sport assistant.

OCCC students can join teams for free with a current ID. OCCC faculty and staff can join as well, Wright said.

“Anyone can join — a student, teacher or faculty, and anyone can form … teams.”

Wright said the regular season starts Wednesday, Nov. 6, and will continue through Wednesday, Dec. 4, with game times from 4 to 8 p.m.

The minimum number of players needed to have a team is five. The maximum is nine, Wright said. The teams are coed.

“Since we are a smaller college, it is harder to get multiple teams of boys and girls to play against each other so to make it easier, we combined it into one league,” Wright said.

“The important thing is it’s all for fun.”

He said practice times are up to the team.

“They do not have to even practice,” he said. “That is completely up to the team and its members to decide …”

Wright said the sport was canceled last season for lack of interest.

“We did not have enough teams to play so they canceled the season.”

Broadcast journalism major Stephen Windsor said he wasn’t aware OCCC had sports.

“I did not know that the school had a intramural volleyball league.”

Engineering and physics major Cody Logston said the team sounds interesting but he doesn’t have time to play this season.

“I had once heard of the league but I do not have enough time to play in it because of my rugby league I am in,” Logston said.
