Volleybees Program for kids age 6 to 11 -Thursdays in Long Beach, NY

Over the years we have developed a program for children from 6 to 12 years in order to teach basic skills of volleyball enhancing their ability to learn the game right from the start. While the focus is to have fun, the participants will pick up the skills quickly by “playing” the game. In this way, the program will provide a broad athletic basis with hand-eye coordination, balance, spatial awareness, and proprioception.

Originally we offered the Volleybees during our indoor club volleyball season but took them with us to the beach in 2016. We train once a week for 90 minutes during the Beach Camp, every Thursday in June and July. Please register soon as we have limited spots  available.

The Hofstra Volleyball Coaches developed a concept to integrate the outdoor challenges with changing conditions, wind, or uneven surfaces to emphasize the INDOOR VOLLEYBALL rules. “Volleyball is a fast-growing sport and we want to offer campers the opportunity to learn skills in the sand – helping them on the court. Our beach volleyball camps are designed for players who want to further their all-around skills for indoor volleyball,” says Head Coach Emily Mansur. The camp will include drills that focus on passing, setting, attacking, defense and serving. We offer a great workout to practice all-around skills and ball control with conditioning being part of every practice.

“We use the outdoor challenges – to teach indoor volleyball!”

Camp Coach turns Pro in Italy

Martignacco, Italy (January 15, 2022) Some of last year’s campers for sure remember Michela Rucli from the beach camp and the indoor season. After her outstanding career at Hofstra and the CAA championship title she turned into a professional volleyball player in the prestigious A1 league in Italy playing most of the time in the starting line-up.  Follow #8 Michela and her Team Delta Despar Trentino
