What is Mini Club?

Mini-Club is a 8-9 week program that is a mini version of club volleyball. Elementary and Middle School aged athletes practice and train within a team setting, participate in 2 one day events against other clubs, during the Fall season when HS volleyball is typically taking place. This is our most popular program outside of our travel teams. It is great for newer kids who want to experience what club volleyball is as well as our more experienced Middle School age players who are looking to prep for the upcoming club season.

Unlike Travel, we do not have a tryout for mini-club. We will ability group players within age groups and select teams once we are able to work with the players over a few practices. Practices are heavy in skill, movement, and game like concepts that will prepare players to be able to play at the highest levels. We teach our players foundational skills that will be used at the High School and throughout their volleyball careers. We incorporate competitive concepts to keep the training fast paced and challenging. Majority of our coaches are educators and all have head coaching experience at the High School and Club levels. They do an excellent job of breaking down skills and building them up so kids can apply them to various situations.
