This training program is for athletes who are in the 13U age group (born 2005).
Using multiple court configurations (mini court & full sized court) and low player to coach ratios, this program will be structured to provide development environments for both intermediate and novice level players.
Participants will receive training in all the basic volleyball skills (passing, setting, hitting and serving) and learn footwork and movement patterns. A lighter ball and a modified game format will used to provide maximum opportunities to practice these skills and prepare players for the more complex 6 on 6 game.
Where appropriate, athletes will be grouped by ability on different courts. Those that can perform the basic skills with control and consistency will have additional skill challenges:
- Use the regular weight ball
- Drills run at higher intensity
- Game play on a full sized court
- Learn offensive and defensive positional play in a 6 X 6 environment.
Training is offered twice a week and athletes can register to attend 1 or 2 days per week. We may also include some optional Play Day competitions against 13U programs from other Lower Mainland volleyball clubs.
Spring Training Programs
We are planning to run a 13U tournament team starting after Spring Break to participate in the Volleyball BC 13U competitions. Details will be available in early February and if interested, athletes participating in this 13U winter program can be considered for selection to the team.
