A5 Sunday Youth
Clinics and camps are purely instructional in nature. Although there are some competitive elements incorporated so that participants learn the game play aspect of volleyball (short court games, cooperative drills, etc). Participants do not compete on a team.
Our instructional clinics are open to participants 7-14 years old (or 2nd-9th grade), no prior experience necessary. We group participants according to age and/or skill level during the first week. We then adjust participants to the appropriate groups depending on how they progress each week.
Part of A5’s success is its coaching methods and philosophy. We believe in technique progressions and high repetitions. We insist on doing each skill repetition the correct way every time. Everyone, regardless of skill level, will start off with core drills that emphasize the basic fundamental skills of volleyball. Each week, we focus on one particular skill set, then build upon it each session. We end each training session with competitive game play. Towards the end of the program, participants compete against each other in different competitive formats.
This program only runs on sunday at the Walker School in Marietta. The Sunday sessions run starting Aug 18 and going thru Sept 30. There are two waves 1pm to 2:45 (8-10 year olds) and 3pm to 4:45pm (11 to 13 year old)
10 & Under - We use a lighter ball, smaller court segments and lower nets. The program’s focal point is fun and enjoyment; at the same time developing agility, hand eye coordination, body movement and ball control work. Team play is incorporated with motor learning and skill development. Ideal for young beginners.
11-12 Years Old - We continue to develop agility, hand eye coordination and court movement. More game play situations are introduced. This is a great way to hone skills or prepare for school or 12 & Under club tryouts.
12-14 Years Old - For those who want to keep their skills sharp, cannot commit to playing club volleyball or just want additional training. The first portion of each session will cover instruction-based drills then progress to competitive play where athletes will be divided into teams. Competitive game play situations are the norm and rotations are introduced.
