NW Juniors Beach Academy

NW Juniors Beach Academy 2022

NW Juniors Beach Academy introduces and improves all of the skills in volleyball.  During the first practice we assess players and group players by age and skill.  It is most important to have players of similar skill on the same court in order to keep each court moving at the proper pace.

This 4 week program spends a great deal of time on individual skill development. We will take each of the skills in volleyball (pass, serve, hit, set, defend, block) and teach the athletes the skills using simple key words and demonstrations.  We aim the drills and feedback towards improvement and mastery. The ultimate goal is for each athlete to dramatically improve their level of play and their appreciation for the sport of volleyball. That requires a lot of contacts, so regardless of the skill level of the player, they can benefit from practice.

Areas that are heavily emphasized are ball control, movement, attack footwork, and some blocking footwork. depending on their skill level, there will also be time spent on basic concepts of team defense, serve-receive offense, and transition defense/offense.  Multiple session offerings for those new to volleyball to learn and improve their skills as well as those more seasoned players.  


REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

No Walk-Ups :  Players must be pre-registered in order to participate in Beach Academy.
