East Central Youth Volleyball Saturdays
Sept. 17th-Oct. 22nd
Youth Volleyball Saturdays are designed to teach or refine basic fundamental volleyball skills (passing, setting, attacking and serving) for youth players in ages 8-14. Most Spokane schools do not offer sports until middle school without exuberant costs and we recognize the need to help girls progress positively on the court so they can build confidence off of the court. Our philosophies use multiple courts, grouping players according to age and/or skill level. Skill mastery is accomplished through skill progressions, coach feedback, volleyball drills, and introductory volleyball games. Examples include serving games, attacking games, setting games and passing games. These games include a variety of formats – 1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2, 4 vs. 4, etc. but do not include full 6 vs. 6 scrimmages using regulation volleyball rules or scoring. These games might include net height and court size adaptations to encourage player success.
Level 1- Beginners
- Beginner-level youth players who desire instruction on basic/individual volleyball skills [passing, setting, attacking and serving].
- Youth players wishing to gain confidence in their individual skills by repeating the course.
- Youth players that prefer instruction vs. competition.
Level 2- Intermediate
- Intermediate-level youth players seeking additional opportunities to refine basic volleyball skills
through a series of modified ‘lead-up’ volleyball games that isolate or focus on a specific skill
including- serving games, attacking games, setting games, and passing games.
- These players may be ready for modified competition vs. instruction.
Private Lessons Available
Availability: Scheduled in 6-week sessions during the Fall, Winter and Spring in 1 hour segments following the ‘traditional’ school-year calendar [September-June] and also during the Summer Camp season in alternate formats.
