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.
