The very popular PowerPlex Jr. Volleyball League is now having a remote Jr. League in Eddyville, IA! This will be a 6 week instructional COED league for 4th–8th grade volleyball players.
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 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. 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.
What is Jr. League: Jr. League is a clinic once a week that will work on all skills of volleyball over the 6 sessions, 1.5 hour a week course.
