MGVA's Power Open Play takes place every Thursday from 6pm-8:45pm! Each session has a small fee of $5/player. Power Play is offered year round, featuring one indoor hard court. We play at Beulah Brinton Community Center (2555 S Bay St. Milwaukee, WI 53207).
Power Play is designed for our higher skill level players (advanced/BB or more). Power Play is open to our experienced intermediate players as well, every other week. Follow our Facebook page to see who is playing at Power that Thursday! Advanced players will be expected to consistently execute fundamental volleyball skills in a 5-1/6-2 offensive system against other players of at least a newer advanced level. The play environment is competitive and supportive. Players should be highly familiar with multiple positions and rotations, and specialize in at least one they can execute at this new advanced level.
Minimum skills needed:
Full understanding and execution of 5-1/6-2 system (offense & defense)
Full knowledge of and at least approaching advanced skill in at least one position (OH, OPP, MB, S, L)
Successfully executes fundamental volleyball skills (e.g, receive serve, set a hittable ball at varying tempos, hit a ball on third contact not resulting in a error & often leading to kill, set/close block, defend, etc.) in both in-system and out-of-system play situations against opponents of a similar level and against opponents of a more advanced level.
