What

Volley for Mitchell (VFM) is a 4 on 4 sand volleyball tournament played each year to raise funds for Parent Project MD research. Each team is guaranteed 2 matches. VFM is played using rally scoring (point on every volley). First team to 15 wins a game with best 2 out of 3 games winning the match.

Where

VFM is headed back to the Rec Sports Complex outdoor sand volleyball courts located behind Shots on the River restaurant in Belmont, MI. Plenty of parking is available. Family and friends are welcome to bring chairs, sunbrellas, and tents to setup around all four courts to watch games and cheer on players.

When

Saturday - July 15th, 2017

Kids Start - As early as 8AM

Adults Start - Mid AM to Early PM

No rain date planned. (“We’ve been lucky so far!“)

Who

All players young and not so young are welcome to play. Four player teams can be all male or female teams as well as mixed “co-ed” teams. Looking to keep it competitive yet fun, so 18+ year old teams must have a minimum of 1 female per team. We’ll create divisional brackets based on age groups and how many players register.

VOLLEY FOR MITCHELL
it's not just a game

WHY WE PLAY

Volley for Mitchell started with the thought of helping Steve and Sandy Peterson, founders of Mitchell’s Run thru Rockford, raise even more money to help Parent Project MD lead the fight to end Duchenne, a disorder their son Mitchell lives with.

The 4 on 4 sand volleyball tournament is now in its 11TH YEAR and has raised OVER $100,000 in support of Duchenne muscular dystrophy research.
