ABOUT MINI VOLLEY

Our process is based on the following sequence, as described by the International Federation of Volleyball (FIVB):  

HOW TO ENJOY   >   HOW TO PLAY   >   HOW TO WIN  

We teach the game through a combination of drills and Mini Volleyball. 

What is mini-volleyball? 

A modified version of volleyball:

A reduced court, lower net No more than 4-players per side
Always aim for 3 passes All players play all positions
Focus on serving under-hand to make sure all players learn how to pass properly Once players have strong passing skills, we begin teaching overhand serve
Training sessions are planned from easy to difficult, but we try to avoid fatigue to ensure concentration We make training interesting by introducing game-like situations and contests

 

Training Principles

Maximum contact means maximum learning

There is a time and a place for everything and when it comes to specialization, it should be later not sooner

Players learn best by playing, not watching Develop well rounded players and they will always be in demand
Don’t just explain how to do it, make sure they understand why: maximize volleyball IQ In the early ages it is important to emphasize collaboration over competition
While the training must be fun, it must also be structured and disciplined As with all subject matters, learning is maximized when we break down the process into small manageable parts however

 

It is important to continually challenge the players with new concepts in order to avoid learning stagnation/boredom

MINI VOLLEY

Our approach to teaching Volleyball follows three stages: How to Enjoy, How to Play, and How to Win.  Our Mini Volley Program is designed for players 6-9yrs old (boys and girls)  who have an interest in learning to play Volleyball.  The program focuses on the first two stages: How to Enjoy and How to Play.  We use a modified version of the sport with a lower net, a smaller court, and less players per court, to ensure every athlete is more involved in every drill or game situation.  This leads to more touches of the ball for each player, which in turn leads to more learning, and more fun. We focus on a Collaborative environment, not competition.  The players inevitably fall in love with the sport and begin learning the proper fundamentals in the process.
