Junior League (2nd-7th grades)

*****NEW and IMPROVED*****

The very popular PowerPlex Jr. Volleyball League is now NEW and IMPROVED.  This will continue to be an 8 week instructional COED league for 2nd–7th grade volleyball players, however for the 4/5th and 6/7th graders we will be dividing the teams and training into a recreational league and competitive league. Details on the differences and how to decide which league is right for your player/team are listed below.

The first part of each session will be focused on the players learning the rules of the game and the fundamentals (camp style) with the Iowa PowerPlex Staff! This will be adjusted to the level of play within the gym (ie: more competitive drills/skill work for the competitive league and more beginner work for the rec league). The last 30/45 minutes will be an instructional scrimmage. During the scrimmage the Iowa PowerPlex Coach will assist the volunteer coaches with questions and give instruction to players.

Players will use volleylite balls, tennis balls, and lower nets to help establish correct form. Coaches will be given sample drills and instructions for how to add onto drills or practices if they choose. As mentioned the scrimmage half will be a game format for beginner and advanced volleyball players that want to learn the game the right way.

Older ages may have some more experienced players and drills and scrimmages will be modified in or to challenge them as well. Players can sign up as a complete team with a coach or as a free agent. A complete team consists of minimum of 6 and max of 8 players and a parent coach. Each player will be registered as a free agent and allowed to request the specific coach in the notes column. If they don’t have a team they can register as a free agent and will be assigned to a coach.

Included in the cost:

T-shirt and end of season tournament
Parent Volunteer Coaches Needed – If you are willing to coach please establish that on your child’s registration page in the comments section. If you chose to volunteer you will receive a $30 discount. IPP staff will lead instruction, volunteer coaches will just need to help during game play to keep games running smoothly.

Ages

2nd/ 3rd Graders COED (Combined)

45 min instruction and 30 minute game play- single league only (no rec/competitive). At this age, all players are still learning skills and the love of the game. Instruction will be of basic volleyball skills: serving, passing, setting, hitting and defense. We will involve players in a fun and energetic atmosphere with drills, games and scrimmages! 

 

4th/5th Graders COED (Combined)

45 minute instruction and 30 minute game play- for both rec/competitive

***Recreational League-designed for players new to volleyball, very little to no experience.  Players will be introduced to all the skills (serving, passing, setting, hitting and defense) over the course of the season and gain basic game play rotations and game play understanding.

***Competitive League– designed for players who have prior organized volleyball team experience. Participants should be able to serve the ball over the net, set and pass to teammates, and understand simple rotation, offense and defense systems. Drills and skills will be more advanced than the rec league.

 

6th/7th Graders COED (Combined)
