Indoor Programs

LITTLE DIGGERS:

This program will provide players with a first taste of volleyball in a fun and exciting environment.  Participants will learn the basics of volleyball through structured games and skill development.  Emphasis will be put on developing the basic fundamentals of movement and physical skills necessary to be able to learn to  play volleyball. BYVC coaches will be following the Mini-volley concepts developed by Volleyball Canada as part of their Long Term Athlete Development model.

The traditional game is adapted to the specific needs and abilities of the participants.  Various rules are also adapted to encourage longer rallies and decrease the difficulty of skill execution.  The objective of these adaptations is to encourage learning, promote success, and increase the enjoyment for the participants.

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.

This program has a maximum capacity of 32 players.
