Storm League, Mini-Volleyball & Select Teams

 

Storm League is a house league type program that includes a Skill Development component as well as Game Play.  There are several types of Storm League programs, Physical Literacy and Fundamental Movement Skills for 5-6 year olds, Mini Volleyball for 7-8 & 9-10 year olds, Skills & Game Play for 11-12, 13-14 & 14-18. Select Teams are sometimes created from the Skills & Game Play programs.

By focusing time and energy on technical skills and positional game play, athletes will possess the fundamentals to participate in competitive or recreational team based settings like the Storm Select Teams or Competitive Rep program.  Some parts of these program will be Co-Ed.

skills & gameSkills & Game Play is an important component of the Storm League and is designed for 11-18 year olds.  Classes are broken into smaller age groups, 11-12, 13-14 & 14-18. These programs focus on all the specific technical skills that are needed to build a foundation for a well-rounded Volleyball player.  The ratio of skills to game play increases in favour of more game play each week until the athletes are playing games for most of the class. Coaches will teach the technical elements of each skill and then run the athletes through drills to practice what they have learned.  They will also be introduced to positional game play and some simple team systems based on age and ability.
