MINI VOLLEY

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
