The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department (WCPR) is pleased to announce open registration for the Spring 2019 youth co-ed volleyball leagues for kids ages 7 to 15 (age as of August 31, 2018).

The leagues are divided into three age groups: introductory (ages 7-9); intermediate (ages 10-12) and advanced (ages 13-15). This year the league will offer three options for practice locations: Franklin, Brentwood or Nolensville. Register for the practice location you prefer. All games will be played on Saturdays with most matches held at Academy Park Gym, 920 Everbright Ave. in Franklin.
