Why Grass? 

Playing on grass is a similar surface to playing in a gym so the timing of the spike approach and the block is similar. As an added bonus, we can set up courts in shady areas on hot days.

What to Expect: 

We use a positive coaching style (we reinforce positively what we want the kids to do instead of looking for errors) and we encourage and reward  good teamwork and team culture.

Price includes GST

No tryouts

Cancellations will incur a $15.00 service charge.
