Itsy Bitsy Spikers
This is a program for primary aged boys and girls (Ages 6-11). Program includes a weekly practice and runs for approximately 3 months. Start Date is January 12th!! If you are interested in participating in our Itsy Bitsy Spikers Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org !! There is limited availability so get your name on the list asap!
The Itsy Bitsy program is designed to be an introduction to basics and fundamentals of volleyball and will be a group no more than 12 total. This will allow us to scrimmage and enables us to hold a full practice even if we have a percentage of players sick or at another activity. Throughout the course of this program, they will learn basic skill sets (passing, setting, and some serving), basic game comprehension (how to play in an actual game, rotations, some positions), and general volleyball terminology. We value the ability to "slow teach" team concepts at our practices so players can understand how everyone moves as a team. We run practices with coaches who know how to teach the sport not stand on the sideline. There will be some lighter conditioning training, to get these players volleyball ready. The goal of our program is that by the end, these players will be ready to perform as a team, and have an end of season game to showcase all they have learned. This program runs for 3 months, there will be a break for the month of January, then we will start the program up again, for those that wish to continue and those that could not get in on the 1st group!!
Coach: This program is being directed and coached by Danelle Kern and may sometimes have guest coaches visit from our Islander staff. For your child's volleyball development you're going to be hard pressed to find more knowledgeable coaches than our staff. We are continually updating this offering to get the most out of our practice time with the kids. The goal is to give players an opportunity to learn from upper level coaches at a price that is much less than travel volleyball.
Cost: The cost for our program is $225. Practices will be on Fridays! Returning Itsy Bitsy will be from 5:00-6:30 and Newcomers will be from 6:30-8:00. Your fees also includes one child's t-shirt jersey for new players which they will be required to wear at all practices.
Required Gear: The items your child will be required to bring that is not included in their fees are, solid black athletic shorts, a court type athletic shoe, a water bottle, and 1 pair of youth sized kneepads *(can order these through the club).
