The Kodiak High School volleyball season wrapped up more than two months ago, but that doesn’t mean the sport isn’t alive and well in town. Yesterday kicked off the winter coed league through Kodiak Parks and Recreation and many more opportunities for community members to bump, set and spike are on the horizon. Merissa Koller has coached for the Kodiak bears and various community teams and said there will be a women’s volleyball tournament this weekend.
The tournament itself will start at 9 a.m. with pool play to determine where each team will be placed in the tournament bracket. Koller said the hope is to separate the teams into gold and silver brackets to allow for more even playing. Prizes will be given to the winners of the gold division. Koller estimates the tournament to run all day and encourages participants to bring plenty of snacks and water.
Next month Koller said the male volleyball enthusiasts of Kodiak will have an opportunity to hit the court for a tournament of their own.
Waiver and entry forms for both the men’s and women’s tournaments can be found online at Kodiak volleyball dot wordpress dot com. The current coed volleyball league will run through February and a women’s league will start up on February 25. She said any interested ladies can contact Corey Gronn with parks and recreation.
