The Volleyball Academy is a year-round program that is designed to develop student-athletes with the focus on systematically teaching fundamental skills in a non-competitive environment.
The goal of the volleyball academy is to deliver the quality coaching that helps young athletes to build a solid foundation and brings lifetime benefits.
The Academy is also designed for students to learn how to play the game, a critical step leading players towards a club team or MS/HS team. These sessions use newly acquired skills in a game-like setting in a smaller group such as 4 x 4.
Volleyball Academy students are grouped into 2 groups based on their ages/skill levels:
Group 1: Beginner (8 yrs – 11 yrs); <1 yr experience)
This group is designed to introduce basic skills to student-athletes with limited experience. Under well-structured instructions, students learn warm up routines, basic volleyball movements, focus on passing, serving and introduction of setting and spike approach.
Group 2: Beginner & Intermediate (12yrs – 14yrs); 1-2 yr experience)
This group helps students to become confident with their passing and setting, increase the pace and movement of balls during sessions. Spiking will start to be combined with the approach. Students understand warm up exercises and contribute during stretching time.
