Our experienced coaches bring their knowledge to the court to help younger athletes develop motor skills, age-appropriate skill development, fundamentals and technique of volleyball, coordination, improve agility, develop hand-eye coordination, and all in a FUN, volleyball related setting.
Age and ability appropriate groups will be taught the fundamentals of volleyball. Young ones will learn to enjoy the game of volleyball through the introduction of drills and games, utilizing a much lighter ball and a lower net. Volleyball is the ultimate team sport, so these small athletes will also learn the benefits of teamwork as they learn to play the game.
Teaching the correct technique for all the fundamentals is very important at a young age. At Ohio Premier Youth Academy, our focus is proper technique to develop good habits and muscle memory in our youth players.
As the players grow and gain experience, we are able to tailor all practices to allow athletes with no experience to get better and allow the most experienced athletes to continue to grow and develop. Classes are for all skill levels.
