Top Spin Volleyball

Kids & Teens

The Top Spin Volleyball Club program is designed to address the development of youth volleyball in Lawrence and surrounding counties.  The club is operated by the New Castle Y and Y-Zone.  The New Castle Y is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.  All practices, trainings, and tryouts for the Top Spin Volleyball Club will take place at the Y-Zone.
It is the intention of our club administrators and coaches to provide a safe and controlled environment to foster the growth and development of volleyball in our community.  Further, we intend to provide a program that will encourage success and character development for our players.  Success will not be measured solely by performance on the court, but also actions and performance off the court.
Our club is registered through USA Volleyball and we are a member of the Ohio Valley Region (OVR) for tournament play.  Our mission is to continue providing a program with a balance between high-quality training and competition while keeping the costs affordable to our families.  Please continue to view sections of our website for additional information.

Being apart of Top Spin Volleyball includes the benefits below:

  • Experienced Coaching – Every Top Spin Volleyball team is coached by a qualified and certified coach with several years of experience.  
  • Training Time – Each team will have 2 hours of practice time 2 nights during the week, and optional weekend practices.
  • Tournament Play – Each Top Spin team will play four to five tournaments throughout the season. Teams may be registered for additional tournaments if deemed appropriate as the season progresses. We will do our best to register each team for tournaments at the Y-Zone but due to availability some may require regional travel.  
  • Uniforms –  The uniforms provided to each player are of high-quality and include a jersey and shorts.
  • Optional Team Conditioning – Once per month each team will be eligible for a training session in the Y-Zone wellness center.  One of the YMCA wellness coaches will take the team through an exercise routine to help build players strength and endurance.

The club administrators and coaches will continue to add more benefits as the club grows.  If you have questions or suggestions regarding membership to the Top Spin Volleyball Club please contact the Yzone administration.

Tryout dates for the 2021-2022 season will be announced soon! The cost for tryouts is $15 for all three sessions. It is not required for players to attend all sessions, although highly encouraged! We understand some of you may prior commitments on some of these days and won't be able to make it to every session. PIAA state finals are on the 17th, this means the OVR allows us to do tryouts no earlier than November 11th.

All tryout sessions are at the Y-Zone, located at 428 Eleanor Drive New Castle, PA 16105. ALL PLAYERS are required to have at least a "try out membership" to the OVR to participate in tryouts. This tryout membership does cost an additional $10 that is paid directly to the OVR (and can be upgraded to a full OVR membership if you do decide to participate in full this season). The link to register for the OVR is here: This page also has a step by step of "how to" register. 


For questions or concerns, email Jen Kmick

To register for tryouts, call the Preston-Chambers Y-Zone at 724-658-9211!
