2020 Fall Youth Clinic - Sundays 2nd - 5th grade
Sunday, August 23, 2020 - Sunday, October 4, 2020
from 1:00 pm - 2:45 pm
Every Sunday 1:00-2:45pm - except Labor Day Weekend
Our instructional clinics are open to participants 7-10 years old (or 2nd-5th grade); no prior experience is necessary. If your athlete has a year or more of club experience, you should instead register for the later afternoon Sunday session for 5th - 7th graders. This Sunday clinic series will be led by A5 Master Coach and Associate Youth Director Walter Patterson, with the help of a number of other experienced A5 coaches.
We may 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. The group they will work with may vary from week to week. Our instructional clinics are designed with beginners and intermediates in mind. Intermediates can still benefit from repetitions through skill progressions and technique adjustments. We recommend our Summer Camps or classes offered at VolleyPerformance for middle school and high school players seeking a more intense training regimen at a higher level.
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.
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.
