Sheridan Youth Volleyball Program
Our Youth Volleyball Program is meant to teach age appropriate skill development and give the kids opportunities to play in volleyball matches. Children are divided into two age groups (3rd and 4th graders) and (5th and 6th graders). The younger age group will focus on skill sets for serving, bumping, and setting. The older children will practice the same basic skill sets and focus on ball control, blocking, and attacks! We also encourage positive reinforcement and teaching the kids to have fun while being part of a team and working together. A great chance to learn while hanging out with friends!
We have worked closely with the SHS volleyball coach, Melissa Jump, to establish the skill sets and method of training preferred and used by the HS team. This will give the children a solid ground level of basic skill sets when enter school play. I am so excited for this opportunity and look forward to building a solid program from the ground up!
Season: Mid- August through October
Uniforms and Equipment: Volleyball Jerseys are provided. Kids may wear black shorts with the jerseys for game days. Tennis Shoes are required on the gym floor. Kids are encouraged to bring their own knee pads to protect their knees.
Practices and Games: In order to allow children to participate in other sports we will be having practices and games on Mondays and Wednesdays and an occasional Saturday. We have worked with Cheer and Soccer to try to work around their game days and Cheers main practice day.
Games: Games will consist of 3 sets to a match, first one to 25 with a 2 point advantage, or 15 minutes per set, whichever comes first. All regular season games will be in house with the hopes of a end of season round robin with the Zionsville Boys and Girls club.
Volunteers: We need parents willing to coach and help at practices and games. Please enter your information when signing up your child if you wish to volunteer or you can email me as well!
I am so excited to be able to offer volleyball as an option for your child!! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me!
