Little Seeds

 Little Seeds Volleyball

        Offers age-appropriate skill development, opportunities to play volleyball games and even opportunities to compete in a competitive format.  Players will learn skills with the aid of “volley-lite” and “first touch” volleyballs, lower nets, and other modifications designed to help younger players learn and play with proper fundamentals. Little Seeds is the perfect volleyball experience for beginners. We focus for 1 hour and thirty minutes on dedicated skills to improve the game of volleyball. Our goal is to dedicate all of our attention on children with very little or no experience in the game. We want to focus on 11 years old and under to promote our enthusiasm, knowledge, and love for kids to play the game, with the goal that in the future they can play at a competitive level.

Program Goals

• The focus is entirely on teaching fundamentals and developing basic motor learning skills, balance and coordination

• It is vitally important to make volleyball fun and enjoyable. We believe the most significant responsibility for youth coaches is teaching young people to love the game and to love the sport

• At the novice level, we take a long-term approach to a player development. Once players begin in our program, we want to give them the preparation and tools they need to make volleyball a lifetime activity

• Learn good habits for maintaining and improving natural skills

• Develop good sportsmanship, time management skills, self-discipline, goal setting abilities, an increased sense of self worth, and lifetime friends

• Start creating LEADERS at an early age, and show them the significance of leadership in sports

• Create a volleyball culture of being dedicated in the sport with a positive and proactive personality

• Introduce basic skills that will be taught independently and/or grouped according to their abilities

• Focus on building strength and endurance, agility, and coordination according to their ages

• Work on good form and details to achieve the right technique

• It is important to keep practices limited to 1 hour and 30 minutes so they become eager for the next session, and to maintain the group together for the next level
