In close collaboration and on the initiative of the municipality of The Hague, Sovicos Volleybal organizes the 11th Sovicos Volleybal Schools League.

The 2020 and 2021 edition unfortunately could not take place for well-known reasons; the volunteers of Sovicos are happy to be ready for you again to set up a nice tournament in 2022. The preparation time is short, but after two years we want to grab this opportunity with both hands.

Unlike other years, this edition will adhere to the rules prescribed by the government regarding access for participants, visitors and supervisors.

On 11, 18, 25 March ans 1 April 2022, Sovicos will organize the 11th edition of the Sovicos Volleyball Schools League. A volleyball tournament for various youth teams from different secondary schools. All teachers and students of secondary schools in The Hague are invited to participate in the school tournament with one or more teams*

* Participation of more than 1 team per category is dependent on the number of registrations and cannot be guaranteed in advance.

Categories

  • mix < 15 years (born after 01-01-2007)
  • girls 15+ (born before 01-01-2007)
  • boys 15+ (born before 01-01-2007)
  • teachers (max 1 team per school)

**All teams must always be occupied with at least 6 players. In addition, in the mix category, at least 2 girls must play in the team.

**A team of teachers may only be registered if a team is also registered in at least one of the other categories.

Please take into account possible dropouts due to corona for the team size.

Levels

We always try to classify the preliminaries by level. This is experienced as positive, but in practice sometimes proves to be difficult. For the coming edition, we will again try to organize the classification by level, but of course we depend on the number of registrations. This applies to the categories mix, boys and girls.

The format is as follows:

  •  Recreation class ; A maximum of 3 team members may be members of a volleyball association. Depending on the number of teams on both levels, the winner of the recreation class may or may not qualify for the final day.
  • Competition class ; this concerns teams that have finished high in previous editions of this tournament. Participants in this class can qualify for the final day.

With this format, we hope that many schools will sign up, because the competitions will be more fun and more equal. We therefore invite all schools to register.

We will try to implement the division into levels, but as mentioned earlier, we cannot guarantee this division into levels for all categories. We ask for your understanding.

Planning and tournament setup

The total tournament is organized on and divided over 4 Friday afternoons. All tournament days are played in the sports hall of HKV/Ons Eibernest at 16 Steenwijklaan in The Hague.

The tournament days last from 15.00 – 19.00 hrs. and the format is as follows:

  • Friday 11 March 2022: preliminary round Juniors mix born after 1-1-2007 **

  • Friday, April 1, 2022: final round for all categories

** The preliminary round of the teachers will also be played on one of these days. Which day this will be depends on the number of registered Mix, Girls and Boys teams on these dates. Shortly after the registration deadline, we will inform the schools that have registered a team of teachers what day it will be. The final round of the teachers is equal with the students.

An attempt will be made to start the competitions of the teachers only from 15.45 hrs.
