A5 Spring Youth
Monday, May 4, 2020 through Wednesday, May 20, 2020
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Spring Youth 2020 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. The Spring youth programs runs starting the end of April or beginning of May till Memorial day and will have the option to do 1 day or two days at the cooler Alpharetta Family Skate Center. 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. If you ready to sign up: REGISTER HERE REGISTRATION is Open!

Amber MacDonald at Wisconsin and Caroline Welsh at Illinois both played significant passing and defensive roles for their respective teams. The VP/A5 Libero Camp is a major part of the training of all of our players who want to serve, pass, and defend at a higher level. This camp is limited to 80 players. It is staffed by many of the best trainers in the country including Jing Hou, Scott Cioffari, Boba Nisivic, JJ Boyte and other high-level coaches versed in the A5/VP system.

Attention to detail fueled by massive amounts of repetition and combination work provide the right and challenging environment athletes seek when they truly wish to better their game. *Please note that while this is listed as a Libero Camp, many athletes playing other positions (outsides, middles, setters) attend this camp in order to work on these three critical aspects of the game: passing-defending- serving.
