If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. 
The hard is what makes it great."

Program Overview

Under Construction

Lil' Spikers is designed to introduce children to the sport of volleyball.  Open to girls and boys in grades K-1. Click here for more information.

Elements is open to girls and boys in grades 2 - 5

Middle School is open to girls and boys in grades 6-8 and is designed to start growing those skills and capabilities learned in our younger programs. Play time will not necessarily be equal and parents are required to provide transportation to games.  

YDT JO is a program for girls and boy in grades 2 - 5 that provides an opportunity for individual growth as well as deeper team development through practices and play dates.  Since the focus of this program is overall development, there are not tryouts for players at this level. Teams are primarily based on age/grade/school.

Summer Camp focuses on development of individual and team skills while learning the fundamentals of competition and mixing in some fun (It's camp afterall!) We tailor the experience and ability level of each age group - beginners and experienced players are welcome.
