This program will provide training focussed on fundamental skill development in a fast, fun, learning environment. Kidz will work with experienced coaches and/or players to learn proper technique for serving, receiving, setting, attacking, blocking and defense along with athletic SAQ development.
VOLLEYKIDZ will use alternative equipment to ensure that kids are able to learn and have fun without the frustration of full sized nets, or heavier balls.
Registration will be available by March 18, 2020
Since March 16, 2020, all in-person training has been suspended to try to minimize the impact of the Corona Virus on our community.
We understand that a lot of our community look forward to the physical training, social interactions, and emotional connection that being a part of our volleyball community offers.
While it was a difficult decision to cease all in-person training, we quickly began working on opportunities for our community to stay connected.
We have provided daily physical training routines along with volleyball specific learning opportunities via our SportYOU app. On a daily basis, we are offering general physical training routines that can be done at home with no special equipment needed. We have encouraged our community to post videos of themselves performing the routines. We have done the same with volleyball specific routines and offer feedback on posted videos to improve technical development. We have also implemented what we call DING-A-LINGS, these will change with time, but for the initial week, we asked for our community to post videos of them performing specific dances.
While none of the activities will meet 100% of our community needs, we are hoping that it gives them an opportunity to stay connected, stay fit, and stay safe.
We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable weekend, but hope everyone keeps the safety of others in the forefront.
With the increasing awareness on the Coronavirus, we are trying to be as proactive as possible in providing the most current information we can provide.
As of now, we have not been advised to cancel practices or events, however, we are advising that this is a possibility. Please understand that there is unlikely an opportunity to re-schedule practices, and I am sure all event hosts will do their best to provide competitions if at all possible. Our contracts are based on a seasonal rate, which means, there is no opportunity to get a refund on unused practice times. Please make sure that ALL are checking app information for the most current practice or event status. As initially stated, SportsYOU app calendar may not be up to date. The most current calendar is always found on the Google Doc Spreadsheet. The link can be found on your team page within the app.
As for the club functioning. All teams are expected to self monitor health situations.
We have created the following form for people to advise us of illness and information surrounding the illness so we can try to make sure that we are not spreading illness internally through the club. If you, or your family or members of your community have been sick over the last month or are currently sick, please take time to provide us some information around the illness.
We are trying to secure hand sanitizer so each team will have some available at all practices and events.
If you or your family members are sick, please check with medical professionals before participating in any events, whether practices or competitions. If you have a fever, please make sure you have been medically cleared before re-joining the team.
Please make sure you are:
As a club, we will be acting on "what is best for group safety" when making decisions. If at any time you(as a family) are not comfortable or feel unsafe with any situation, we encourage you to act on what is best for your family situation.
The likelihood of a an outbreak severely negatively affecting players may not be very high, however, as a club, we encourage a family environment and know that many families are close and some will have family members who are either older or imunnocompromised and we, as a club must be sympathetic that we need to be protecting those family members as well as the general public.
We will continue to post updates on situations ranging from practices to competitions and will also be updating the info on our website.
This is now the most up to date info.
We are examining how we will be proceeding but please be aware that we will be making changes to comply and try to keep our families as safe as possible.
How this will affect events tomorrow and Saturday will be posted later tonight.
