STARS Volleyball

 



 

 

STARS Volleyball is the second progam that JETS ATHLETICS offers each year (in addition to a Volleyball Summer Camp in August). Once again, modifications are employed to help our younger aged players to learn and display actual volleyball skills. In fact, our very first session deals with footwork and arm swing, so our players can learn to hit the volleyball. Some of our other modifications include using badminton nets and courts, as well as softer and lighter volleyballs.

Again, each of our one hour sessions is divided into a half hour of skills and fun drills, followed by half an hour of 3-on-3, or 4-on-4 games. This allows the players to touch the volleyball more often in order to develop their skills. We also allow the youngest group to catch the first two contacts if needed, in order for game play to start to be learned. In addition, high school students (some Varsity players) are often on the teams to help with game play, and to ensure all players get to have the volleyball set or played to them. The first two sessions (Grades 1-3 and Grades 4-5) stay on the badminton courts with the lighter and softer volleyballs. These do not hurt as much as regulation volleyballs and allow players to learn and play with little fear of the actual ball.

In the last session (Grades 6-9), we still use badminton courts and small teams, but we use different nets and poles, so that the players are playing closer to regulation height. This allows for players to be challenged, yet still be able to have success at playing the ball, at this higher net setting. The badminton court and smaller teams allow for more ball touches by the players, and more opportunities to improve their skills. Again, like JETS Basketball and JETS Badminton, less emphasis is placed on winning and stats, and more is placed on learning the technical skills in an enjoyable setting.
