The focus of our youth programming is FUNdamentals! Our goal is to develop correct volleyball form and technique as well as volleyball IQ. We incorporate a variety of motor learning and development strategies to achieve this aim. In order to do so we incorproate more than just volleyball skills to introduce volleyball movements as well as ball skills; including but not limited to, agility training, jumping skills, use of a variety of balls (balloons, tennis balls, Ollyballs, volley lites), obstacle course, mini nets, hitting boxes, and targets. We also incorporate fun games during play to teach these young athletes how to communicate effectively during team play. Our youth programs are designed by our directors who are phsyical therapists, with Robyn speciliazing in Pediatrics with experience across all settings of pediatric physical therapy, with her favorite focus area being early intervention/development therapy. Our athletes recieve a lot of positie reinforcement during each session, and are always eager to come back for more!
