The below information has been updated for the Fall 2020 Volleyball season.




Grab some friends and join the Y’s Volleyball League!  This fall we will be running  two smaller, 6-team volleyball leagues on Tuesday and Thursday nights at the Downtown YMCA at 302 W 1st St. Our league is open to pre-formed teams only with a maximum roster size of eight players per team; rostered team members do not need to be an active member of the Duluth Y. This fall season will runs nine weeks in total: seven round-robin games followed by two weeks of single-elimination playoffs. All games will be refereed, which will aid in ensuring Y pandemic policies are followed at all times. Games will run between 5-8 P.M. with all played on the West gymnasium court.  Teams may deduct $10 for each Duluth YMCA member on their roster, with a maximum $60 deduction.
