Galloway PAL


March 13, 2023

We would like to thank all of our young athletes for another great year and to also thank Coach Ariana for doing such a great job.  Thank you as well to Ranyah, Tiffany, Haisley and Tim for pitching in.   Ariana, Tif, Raniyah and Haisley are alumnae from our PAL Volleyball program and now volunteer as coaches when they can.  Ariana currently plays at ACCC and is a coach at Oakcrest and at East Coast Crush VBC.  Tim has been a long-time coach at Pleasantville.  Haisley and Raniyah are student athletes at Absegami and Oakcrest , respectively.

Closed for Winter Break, return on Monday, January 9th


PAL volleyball begins this Monday, November 28th at 6pm for our 4th - 6th grade group.  Please bring your young athletes to Galloway Township Middle School (GTMS) a few minutes before 6pm, dressed and ready to begin training.    The address for GTMS is 100 S. Reeds Road, Galloway, NJ and you pass two other schools before you get to GTMS at the very end of Reeds Road.  The gym entrance is on the left side of the building as you are driving in.  


Tee shirts, sweats or volleyball spandex (girls) and gym shoes are required.  Knee pads are recommended; an example of the type of kneepad used for volleyball is below:


Jewelry is not allowed for safety reasons so have your kids leave their earrings, necklaces, watches, wrist bands, etc. at home.  Also, have them bring a water bottle, there is a filling station outside the gym in the hallway.  Other than water, no food or drink is allowed in the gym.  


Drop your young athlete off in the GTMS gym a few minutes before 6pm and you can return to pick them up promptly at 7:15.  They will play every Monday when the school is open until mid- March.  We are off for Winter Break, MLK and Presidents Day and a schedule will be posted on the  website at this location:


The format will be clinic-style with athletes being taught beginner-level fundamentals each week and then allowed some time to play where they can use the new skills that they have learned.  We are sold-out at maximum capacity, so we will not be accepting any additional players.  There is very little spectator room at GTMS, so if you are able to drop your athlete off and come back to get them promptly at 7:15, it would be appreciated. 


The Head Coach for this age group is Ariana Torres, who is an Assistant Coach at Oakcrest HS and a player at ACCC.  I will pitch in and assist Ariana as necessary.  This is her 3rd year of working with this age group, and our 25th year of doing PAL Volleyball.  If you scroll down this page, Ariana and I are pictured with some of last year's 4th - 6th grade group.



4th through 6th grade volleyball will be taught in clinic fashion with emphasis on teaching the fundamentals such as serving and passing.  This is a beginner level program for both boys and girls.  We will begin on November 28th and run on Mondays from 6pm to 7:30pm.


Thank you to all of our athletes and to Coach Ariana for making our Winter 2022 4th-6th grade PAL Volleyball a big success.  We hope to see you all back for next year.  Signups for 2023 will begin in October right here on this website.
