The Academy Sports Center will host a 6 week season (year round) volleyball training and competition program for girls in 5th-9th grade. This is an opportunity to train with some of the best volleyball coaches in the NW. We will train on Mondays and Fridays and will have 2 in-house tournaments as well.
We are committed to training the whole athlete through the latest coaching techniques and philosophies. We do very little talking during the training portion of our practice, with most of their time spent in drills that emphasize a maximum amount of quality ball contacts. Players that are learning need to have as many opportunities for a trial and error experience reading movement and contacting the ball. A Trial – Feedback – Strategy – Repeat process is utilized as much as possible which allows our players to attain tremendous levels of competence in all six skills of volleyball through these training methods. All players are trained in all skills.
The AVL is for a beginner or intermediate level junior high player who wants to improve their skills to play club or for their high school. Athletes who have only had YMCA or Boys and Girls Club experience are encouraged to join AVL.
The first week of each session - coaches will assess players and put them into training groups based on their skill level. This assessment is done through a competitive ranking tournament that places players into groups of similar ability. After the initial week, teams will be formed and each team will be assigned a coach. Teams will train together as we introduce the skills beginning in week 2 and they will compete in two tournaments during the 6-week season.
