LITTLE SPIKERS (2nd-4th grade girls & boys):
Little Spikers focuses on introducing players to volleyball through a series of fun games that emphasize movement on the court and an introduction to ball handling skills. We have players who have come back to our Little Spiker program for several series over the years. Little Spikers uses USAV-approved volleyballs specially designed for this age group that are lighter and somewhat softer to land more gently on young players' arms.
YOUTH SKILLS SERIES (4th & 5th grade boys & girls)
Our Youth Program is a new program designed primarily for new or returning players who want to develop a great skill base in a pre-middle school environment. We found that some 4th graders would benefit from a program beyond Little Spikers and many 5th graders are not quite ready for our middle school program. This program is also suitable for more experienced younger players who are ready for a new challenge. The Youth program uses Molten VB-U12 Youth volleyballs, used by USAV U12 teams. These balls are a little lighter which helps younger players without as much strength develop good technique.
