Girls Volleyball League registration opens for inaugural season

 

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (July 30, 2010)  Girls Volleyball League is offered for the first time ever in Goodyear, beginning this fall. Games are played on Saturdays from October 2 through November 6. Weekday practices begin September 7. Offered for girls ages 7 through 15, registration is currently in progress and will be ongoing through Sunday, Aug. 29, or until the League is filled. The fee is $70 for Goodyear residents and $80 for non-residents. Reversible team jersey costs $15. Register before 5 p.m. on August 13 and receive a $10 early-bird discount.

 

Register online at www.goodyearaz.gov/rec, or in person at Goodyear Recreation Division, 3075 N. Litchfield Rd., Goodyear, AZ  85395.

 

The City of Goodyear is proud to offer this inaugural season of Girls Volleyball League, meeting the many requests from citizens for girls' leagues. Research suggests that girls and women who play sports have higher levels of confidence and self-esteem, and depression is less common. They also tend to have a better, more positive body image and sense of overall well-being than girls and women who don't play sports.

 

Traditionally, boys have used sports to learn about teamwork, goal-setting, and other behaviors that promote achievement and excellence later in life, especially in the adult workplace. Now, Goodyear hopes to help girls gain the same edge on their future by offering this and other sports programs.
