East Mids volleyball league registration 2016-17

Hello everyone


Its that time of year again where we ask for current league teams to re-register and ask for new teams to join us.

Congratulations to the league winners

Womens 1Darkstar Derbyshire     (Runners Up – Ashfield Vipers)

Mens 1Melton Men                         (Runners Up – Kettering)

Mens 2Darkstar Derbyshire           (Runners Up – Leicester VC)


And the MVPs from each league


Womens 1Jess Stock (Nottm Rockets)

Mens 1Kris Kuksa (Nottm Casualties)

Mens 2 –  Calvin Moss (Belper Hammers)



The format for this year…..

Melton men have decided to drop out of Div 1 to allow them to concentrate more on their NVL (MN2) commitment (possibly putting a team into Div 2 instead). This means that both Darkstar 3 and Leicester VC are automatically promoted from Div 2 to Div 1.. congratulations to both teams.


So provisionally we have the following


Mens 1                                         Mens 2                                                    Womens 1

Kettering                           Hermitage                                    Darkstar womens 2

Polonia  Leicester            Belper Hammers                        Ashfield Vipers

Darkstar mens 2               Ashfield Vipers                                       Nottm Rockets

Nottm Casualties             Loughborough Uni students                Hermitage

Darkstar mens 3               Northampton Outlanders                    Lincoln Leopards

Leicester VC                                                                                       Loughborough Uni students


This is all dependent on teams above re-registering and we are aware that there are a number of potential teams that have expressed an interest in joining up too.

If we have enough new teams sign up we will look at adding a second womens league and possibly a 3rd men’s league.


It is still the case that Mens Div 2 teams can have women playing for them.  We hope this allows new teams to establish themselves and hopefully in the future get enough women interested in playing that they can submit a team in to the womens league as well.


NVL players –   we allow NVL registered players to participate in the East Mids leagues. 

Mens 1 – max of 4 on court at anytime (including libero)        

Mens 2 – max of 3 on court at anytime (including libero)

Womens – max of 3 on court at anytime (including libero)

U18s at the date of 01/09/16 are classed as U18s for the whole season and are not counted as NVL players.


We appreciate that it is difficult to find court time, referees and volunteers to score etc… How about considering organising triangulars? Need help with anything at all just get in touch


Registration forms for teams and players are attached with this seasons rules.  Any questions let me know.


Also attached is a county contact form.. can we ask that all county associations and clubs fill this in as much as they can as we are always battling to have up to date contact information.


Can you contact us as soon as possible to say you want to re-register or submit a new team please.  Forms need to be sent back before the end of September.
