Jump, Pass, Dig dominates reverse coed volleyball tournament

Adult volleyball season is almost here

Women took center stage in the Juneau Parks and Recreation’s first annual Reverse Coed Volleyball tournament at Thunder Mountain High School on Saturday.

Adopting special rules in which men aren’t allowed to spike or block the ball, the event served as a precursor to the next month’s adult coed volleyball season, which averages around 60 teams of all abilities.

Parks and Rec Volleyball Winners

Half Pack (Julia Frost, Justin Jarvis, Robert Schuler, Alicia Schuler) defeated Will Clark, 2-1 (25-17, 12-25, 15-13), in the Gold championship. In the Silver championship, Jump, Pass, Dig (Kirt Stage-Harvey, Hannah Harvey, Sophia Harvey and Jeremy Weske) ousted Los Lobitos, 2-0 (25-11, 25-22). Jump, Pass, Dig was the only team out of 12 to go undefeated.

“Everyone had a good time and it was well received with the players,” Dave Pusich, the city’s adult sports recreation manager, said.

The adult volleyball coed season begins on Feb. 11. Teams can register online at juneau.org/parkrec/adult/adultsports.php or attending visiting the City and Borough of Juneau Assembly Chambers, 155 South Seward St., Thursday at 5 p.m. A $30 late registration fee will be applied on Friday.

Volleyball matches scheduled for weekday nights and Sunday afternoons. Division 1 and 2 team registration costs $275, while Division 3 and 4 team registration goes for $375. The extra $100 in in the lower divisions goes toward paying officials (upper divisions provide their own officials). A double-elimination postseason tournament begins in April.
