Program Overview

House, grade K-1:

Our House K-1 Program introduces young kids to the exciting sport of volleyball. This program is in the Fall.  We use specialized equipment, carefully designed activities, and a low child/coach ratio to maximize success. This is open to girls and boys.  Practices are typically 50 minutes and the season lasts 4 weeks.

House, grade 2-5:

Our House2-5 Program introduces our young athletes to the sport of volleyball in an encouraging and fun format.  This program is in the Fall.  The season will be structured to introduce and reinforce individual and team skills to prepare our players for competition. Teams will be arranged according to grade level and schools (2nd/3rd grade teams and/or 4th/5th grade teams).  Practices are typically 50 minutes and the season lasts 4 weeks.  

Competitive, grade 6-8:

Our Competitive Program is for Middle School athletes (grade 6-8; and 5th graders who would like to tryout) who have some experience playing volleyball.  This program is in the Fall. It is more of a commitment with practices and games.  The players will be taught rotations and other volleyball skills to prepare them for High School Volleyball.  This program will have a tryout which usually takes place in later August each year.  Attendance is required at tryouts.  Practices are 1.5 hours long and this program runs for 6-7 weeks.
