A semi-open practice for intermediate volleyball players
For athletes 12 to 18 years old with at least 1-year of competitive volleyball, graduation from the Beginner Volleyball program, or both. The Intermediate Volleyball program focuses on giving the athletes the skills, knowledge, and mindset to play competitively. In addition to developing all-around skills for volleyball (serving, passing, hitting, and setting), Intermediate Volleyball focuses on teaching the fundamentals of rotation and location-based play (front row, back row, defender, setter, hitter). Training is 90 minutes in length and is open to both boys and girls.
What will the athlete learn?
Starting with a foundation in the fundamentals of volleyball, the intermediate athlete will focus on position and rotation skills, and will use these skills to play competitively.
Is this a difficult program?
This is the first program the Delta Athletics series where the athlete will be challenged to develop both physically and mentally. While not all portions of the practice will be difficult, there will be times where they have to overcome obstacles that may be physically draining, and/or mentally challenging. Of course, it is our goal to make sure they develop in a supportive environment, so their personal development will only be as tough as they can effectively handle.
Requirements for joining the program
Delta Athletics requires that athletes joining the intermediate program demonstrate fundamental volleyball skills equivalent to a player with with 1-year of competitive experience. Players may test into the intermediate program, or show proof of competitive play at the junior high school or club level.
