Players and Parents (Formerly Little Diggers and Smashball):

The Parents & Players  – Learn to Play Program (P&P) is a two-year pilot funded by the OVA and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. It aims at providing parents and kids with a unique and inspirational first engagement to the sport. 

BYVC will run this indoor volleyball grassroots programs over 6-weeks (1hr. per week) where parents and their children spend quality time on the court together participating in physical literacy activities, volleyball skill development and learning how to relate sports skills to life lessons. 

Parents must be fully dedicated to being actively involved in this program as both parent and child participate in the physical portion of the session and work side-by-side to more effectively learn the skills.

BYVC Recreational House League:

An eight-week program that builds on the fundamentals introduced in the SPIKES developmental program.  Participants in this league are able to consistently execute the individual skills in order to make game play stimulating and exciting.  This program has more focus on game play but will still include some instruction.    Players will not be on the same team for the whole 8 weeks – they will be randomly assigned teams each night – players on winning team accumulate points as an individual – prizes at the end of the program for the people accumulating the most points.  There will be some rule modifications to encourage use of 3 contacts and position specialization will not be allowed.   3 games each night.

Target market is girls up to grade 9 and boys up to grade 8.  Minimum grade 7.  This program is meant for children trying to improve their skills in order to make their high school team or move from a non-starter to a starter role.  Would also fit those children who want to play volleyball but can’t commit to a competitive “rep team” environment.

Dates and Times: Starts March 7th to May 9th (eight weeks). No session on March 14th (March Break) or April 18th (Easter Monday). Start time is 6:45 p.m. for 1 1/2 hours.

For Ages: 12 – 15

Location: Pauline Johnson Collegiate & Vocational School, 627 Colborne St, Brantford, ON N3S 3M8.
