The U.S. Youth Volleyball League — for youths eight to 14 years old — that uses Clover Park in Santa Monica is taking registrations for its fall program.

The league operates in a co-ed format.

League officials say the league emphasizes learning by positive reinforcement.

The group’s mission “is to provide every child between the ages of eight and 14 with the opportunity to learn and play volleyball in a fun, safe and supervised environment,” league officials say.

Theme for the league is “Every Child Plays.”

The eight-week volleyball program will focus on serving, hitting, setting and spiking, as well as fundamentals of volleyball, including teamwork and sportsmanship.

The program in Santa Monica runs from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays and 10 to 11 a.m. Saturdays.
