What are the rules?

We will be adapting the Stonewall Sports national rule set, which can be found here. Please be advised that these rules may be subject to tweaks and changes before the season officially starts.

How do I join?

There are three ways you can participate in a Stonewall Sports season as an active player. You can:

  • Create and captain a team
    • Creating your own team and acting as the Captain gives you control over how you build your roster. You can recruit up to 8 players and will be given free agents to round your team out up to 12.
  • Joining as a free agent
    • Playing as a free agent is a great way to experience Stonewall, whether it's your first season or your 10th! Our leagues grow year after year, so it's almost guaranteed you'll meet groups of new and friendly people. You can also request to be partnered with a friend as a pair of 2 free agents so that you are placed on a team together.
  • Join an existing team as a player
    • Stonewall Sand Volleyball teams are coordinated first by the team captain. Before completing the registration process, please ensure that a captain knows you will be taking up a player spot on their team. This prevents any confusion for the team rosters.

What do I need to know as a captain?

All Stonewall Sports Cleveland captains should be excellent communicators, mediators, and leaders.

As a captain you will be responsible for:

  • Communicating essential information about schedules, locations, and events
  • Team cohesion and healthy interaction between your team members and other participants
  • The on-boarding of your free agent players, helping them transition from new player to fully fledged team member and friend
  • Management of rotation order and general information about the sport
  • Ensuring that everyone adheres to the Stonewall Sports code of conduct

Who is the main contact for Stonewall Volleyball?

We ensure that your communications with the league can be treated as confidential and handled respectfully.

Adjacent street parking is typically available. Additional parking is available across Main Ave on Center Street. We of course encourage buddy car-pools, biking, and walks on a nice day - just make sure you bring plenty of trail mix.



How can I volunteer?

We are looking for referees to undergo our certification process for this season. Any interested persons should contact stonewallcleveland@gmail.com.

We will be holding referee certification sessions! Stay tuned for more information.


Each team will also need to provide line judges for each week at a scheduled time separate from their match. These positions do not need to undergo the referee certification but should have a clear understanding of the rules to assist the referees in calling the game.
