Middle school students are invited to join a new indoor volleyball league.

Surf City Parks & Recreation will begin the program on Sept. 7, and matches will be played for eight weeks, from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays in the Surf City Community Room gym, using NCHSAA rules. Matches will all be a best two-of-three game format with a referee and scorekeeper. Play is designed to last one full hour.

“With volleyball now on the map in Surf City , we are running adult leagues, youth clinics and just concluded our first summer camp,” said Steve Unger, athletics supervisor. “Our new league should cater to many players getting ready for play at their schools this coming winter.”

To be eligible, players ages 10 to 15 must be enrolled at the middle school level in grades 6 to 9. Home-school students are also welcome. The cost is $40, and everyone will receive an official league shirt. Practices will be held Monday nights from 6 to 8, and volunteer coaches are sought. To get a taste of volleyball play, open practices for the age group will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. on Mondays through Aug. 26. Open play is free to any players who have signed up for the league and Community Center members. Guest registration is $5.
