Evolution is Iowa PowerPlex’s Non-Traveling/High-Training volleyball program for players in 5th-8th grade. This program is for all experience levels, but focuses on player development, skill building, team play, and fun. It kicks off November30th and runs 8 weeks, until the end of January. Practices take place once a week, in a group format, by grade. NEW this year players will be placed on a team and compete in the Central Iowa Volleyball League on Saturdays, December 5th- January 30th. This program is designed to get players ready for club by creating a space for them to improve and learn the game so they are ready to play school ball, club ball or prepare for a travel team.
Our goal is to provide a fun experience that develops an interest in the sport. This program is a good starting point for players who are interested in playing later in high school and on more advanced traveling club volleyball teams. This format will allow the players 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 players will benefit immensely from learning team offensive and defensive systems. Players will have one practice focused on game like situations and an additional night focused on learning appropriate skills.
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.
