Juniors (Grade 3-4)
Our coaches will never forget their first season of volleyball and we understand the importance of giving kids a great first experience so that they fall in love with this great sport! We use lightweight volleyballs to increase rallies and modified games and activities so kids are playing age appropriate games with lots of rallies, movement, communication and fun! Our coaches are trained to keep our Juniors engaged and active throughout their 75-minute session. The last 20-30 minutes of every session features 4 on 4 game play on small courts and each child touches the ball hundreds of times. Each season culminates in a championship tournament!
Intermediates (Grade 5-7)
Our 90-minute Intermediate program features 45 minutes of game like activities and 45 minutes of small team game play with more touches, more rallies and more fun! Each participant will touch the ball hundreds of times in each session. We use lightweight balls to increase rallies and success, and we modify the rules to encourage communication, teamwork, movement and fitness. Kids will play mostly with their developmental peers so that they are always challenged and never overwhelmed. This program is a great preparation for kids to play on their school volleyball teams. Each season culminates in a championship tournament!
Seniors (Grade 8-11)
Our 90-minute Senior program is a great place to play volleyball outside of the school and club volleyball system. Participants will learn the skills, strategies and positions of 6 vs 6 volleyball with 45 minutes of game-like drills and 45 minutes of game play. We make sure that participants are grouped with their developmental peers so that they are always challenged and encouraged to always give their best effort to keep the ball flying! Our coaches are trained to teach skills in a consistent way and we use the same training and technique cues as our National team programs. Each season culminates in a championship tournament!
