Atomic Volleyball

There is a great need for youth recreational programming in the sport of volleyball. The ATOMIC volleyball program can help fill this need; it is a comprehensive 8-week program with adapted rules (smaller court, lower net, fewer players per side, softer volleyballs).

Atomic Volleyball stresses FUN, FAIRPLAY, and PARTICIPATION by increasing the number of ball contacts per player, creating longer and more successful rallies, and by developing proper skill delivery.

The Atomic Volleyball program was developed in conjunction with the Canadian Sport for Life Manual (Long Term Athlete Development) and provides programming for the LEARNING TO TRAIN STAGE which targets ages 9 to 12.

ATOMIC participants will learn the basics of volleyball:  forearm and overhead passing, hitting, serving, basic team movement, and sportsmanship.
