All Leagues Monday, February 2 Tuesday, February 3 Friday, February 6*
     
Team registrations are due by 5:00 February 6.
*Teams registering after February 6 will only be added until February 13
IF THERE IS AN OPENING IN THEIR LEAGUE. 
All registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Our office cannot guarantee placement in any league.

Captains do not need to know WHO all their players are before they register a team. To ensure getting a spot in the league, captains are encouraged to register promptly Feb 2 or 3, then finish confirming their players. Team rosters are not due until March 5, 2015.
Team registration forms and player contracts are available on the 'forms & rules' section of this website.

Pre-registration is open to all returning Rec&Ed volleyball teams that played in a league during Spring, Sand, or Fall 2014, or Winter 2015.  A team must meet one of the following criteria in order to be considered a returning team:
(1)  Have a returning sponsor
(2)  Have a returning captain
(3)  Have four returning players (2 for Quad leagues)..

Open registration is for all new teams or returning teams that did not participate in the league during the previous year.
 
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS AVAILABLE! (for Sponsor/Initial registration only)
You can sign up your team online.  Receive immediate confirmation of your league placement with the same priority as walk-in registrants. Captain’s packet is mailed out within 3 days. NOTE:  Online registration is for initial / sponsor registration only, which reserves your team’s spot in the league.  Captains will still need to come into the office by the contract deadline date to bring in their roster, player contracts, team fee, and non-resident fees.
 
When registering online, all captains must set up an online Rec&Ed account.
Setting up an account is free & easy. Only returning captains can register online during the pre-registration period (2/3/14). Returning captains will receive a code to use to pre-register. Anyone with an online account can register online after February 3, 2014.

If you are signing up a team on 2/2/15, you will be asked for the "Pre-Reg Code" which is sent to returning captains.  

 Other ways to register a volleyball team

  1. By Mail: Mark envelope “ Adult Volleyball League” and send it to Rec & Ed at 1515 S. 7th Street, Ann Arbor MI 48103.
  2. By Drop Box: Mark envelope “Adult Volleyball League” and place in our drop box at 1515 S. 7th Street, Ann Arbor, 48103.  The drop box is located inside the foyer and is accessible 24 hours a day.

You may also register your team before the start of the registration period, if this is more convenient.  Doing so, however, does NOT give you priority over those registrations received by online or walk-in registration DURING the registration period.   Registrations received by mail, fax, or drop box on or before Monday, Feb 2,  2015 will be processed after 4:30 PM on Feb. 2 if they are returning teams. New teams will be processed after 4:30 PM on Feb 3.

Priority is given to online and walk-in registrations throughout the registration period.   Any mail-in, drop-box, or faxed registrations received after Feb 2 will be processed at 4:30 on the day they are received. If you requested one, captain's packets are mailed out within 3 days or registration processing. Please call the Rec&Ed office at 994-2300 x 0 if you do not receive your packet in a timely fashion. All team paperwork is also available on the website!

NOTE: ROSTERS, CONTRACTS AND TEAM FEES SHOULD BE SUBMITTED IN PERSON BEFORE THE DEADLINE AND DURING BUSINESS HOURS AT THE Rec&Ed OFFICE ON 1515 S. 7th STREET. CONTRACTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AT THE GYMS. Captains may send anyone they wish to drop off these items.
