Adult Sand Leagues

NEW Sand Volleyball Registration Option Offered April 5-16

To provide for fewer people in the Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) office, remote registration for adult sand volleyball will be offered as an option this summer. We’re providing this option given our current circumstances. Please know in-person registration is still being provided. Please know both remote and in-person registrations are equal and sand leagues do not fill up.


Option 1: Remote Registration

  • Remote registration starts Monday, April 5 at 7:30am and ends at 5pm on April 16. This is done by emailing your roster to rjochim@bisparks.org. And then, you wait….
  • Adult Sand Roster Form
  • DO NOT CALL IN WITH YOUR PAYMENT. Someone from our office will contact you to take your credit card payment over the phone. This may take a day or two. Please make sure to provide contact information on your roster. All fees must be paid at one time over the phone. We will not call your players individually for payment.
  • If you have a credit from the fall league, please make sure to note that on your roster so that is deducted from your payment. You can contact RaNae at rjochim@bisparks.org if you need to verify the amount of your credit.
  • Your sponsor check may be dropped off separately as needed but we don’t allow individual player’s fees to be dropped off, please. You can drop the sponsor fee off in our office, or you can put it in an envelope and put it in the dropbox outside the BPRD office. Please note the team name or manager’s name with the payment so we can match up the roster with the payment.

Option 2: In-Person Registration at the BPRD office, 400 E. Front Ave.

  • In-person registration starts Monday, April 5 at 7:30am and ends at 5pm on Friday, April 16.
  • Adult Sand Roster Form
  • You must follow physical distancing guidelines while standing in line. We will have 6-foot markings in the office and outside the office. Masks are encouraged. Please be respectful of others registering and of our BPRD staff.
  • All fees must be paid at time of registration. We do not allow individual players to come in and pay their fees separately.

    • Sponsor Fee – What and How
      Every volleyball team, in addition to individual player’s fees, pays a team sponsor fee. Perhaps a team member has a connection with a local business and can approach that business to pay the fee? The team can then use that business name in their team name, if you so choose. The business gets some exposure as their name is listed on schedules and results. The business can use it as an advertising expense. (Hint: be sure to express your thanks to this business. They need to know you appreciate their support.)  What if you don’t want to, or are unable to find a business to sponsor your team? Some teams split that cost among all the team members and include that when registering. The options are up to your team to discuss.
  • All teams will receive a team beverage permit with their schedule

Roster Deadline

The deadline is April 16. Roster forms are available at the Bismarck Parks and Recreation District Office and must be returned by April 16 with the proper fees. All teams must have seven players per roster, except Men’s, Women’s, and Coed 4-Person leagues, which must have five players.
