Iowa PowerPlex now offers a Non-Traveling/High-Training volleyball program for girls in 4th-7th grades. This program is for all experience levels, but focuses on player development, skill building, team play, and fun. It starts in January and runs for 9 weeks, until the end of February. Practices take place once a week, in a group format, by grade.
Each age group has a head coach who directs the practice and oversees the other coaches. Our goal is to provide a fun experience that develops an interest in the sport. This program is a good starting point for girls who are interested in playing later in high school and on more advanced traveling club volleyball teams. This format will allow the girls to be exposed to the same techniques and drills used by our Traveling Team staff, just as they would during our club season. In addition to practicing all of the essential skills and fundamentals, the girls will benefit immensely from learning team offensive and defensive systems. Also for training purposes, included in the cost are 6 (optional) PDS sessions! Practice alongside of our top Elite program training teams (once a week) in our Player Development Series. Players will focus on one set skill each week (schedule TBA) PDS included in the cost.
There are no tryouts for this program and no prior experience is needed. All players are welcome and will be placed in the appropriate group by grade. A player can be added to this program at any time during the season. To sign up, click on the button below, fill in the electronic form, and then just show up at the next practice session for the appropriate grade level. T-shirts will be given to those signed up before Dec 1st.
No USAV membership is required. At the end of the season we will have an inter-squad tournament where players can showcase their skills learned over the 9 weeks.
