Each session runs about 1.5 hours long; every session has a section focused on skills followed by a progression into modified game play. 

For 6, 7’s and 8 years old’s:  Mini Volleyball  is an introduction to the sport of volleyball for the young.  It’s a fun and creative program. The program runs for about a one hour long, with the remainder of time used for eye-hand-ball coordination activities.

For 9-10 years old’s: Atomic Volleyball  is an introduction to the sport of volleyball providing activities while learning the movement needed to play the sport. Co-ed participation.

Volleyball 12’s for 11 and beginning 12’s is the entry level in the development of a volleyball athlete.

Volleyball 13’s   We will accommodate this age group within the Triple Ball program, until such time as we get enough for it’s own group.  


Volleyball Canada’s national development program is called “Elementary” and has been deemed to be the best method of training for this age group.

We follow best practices for these entry level programs.  Everyone has to begin to learn how to play the sport.  It’s exciting when you improve. 

It’s all about controlled training with a purpose within a game time environment.   Includes training with a certified coaches, along with some game play during the sessions.   Each session has a progression of skills development and modified game play.  Co-ed participation.

The technical components of the skills are the same for all beginners in the sport.   The practices are at different levels, to accommodate a variety of levels in the players.

There are three levels of practice plans in each session to enable the instructor to keep all the players involved. The practice plans are progressive to make moving some players onto more challenging activities while others may continue working on the easier ones. Each session has activities designed for Novice, Intermediate and Advanced levels.

When a player reaches the Advanced level, it is suggested they move onto a more competitive volleyball environment.  We encourage that.    Contact Sheldon for more information about that.

Parent as coaches:
Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s development.  Parents with volleyball knowledge are more than welcome to provide assistance during the sessions.    

Please contact Sheldon or inquire at your child’s court.  There are some specific requirements needed for all who are coaching children which is easy enough to do if you are interested to assist.
