Program Description: The program is designed for participants to learn and enhance volleyball skills in a fun and high-energy environment. The focus is on volleyball fundamentals and improving the basics. Participants will not only learn passing, serving, setting and hitting, but will also work on developing coordination and motor skills. The goal is to ensure our participants have an absolute blast while being introduced to the great team sport of volleyball. The program is led by Coach Reyes Cordero and assisted by our experienced Little Rock Juniors staff. Coach Reyes's philosophy for Future Stars is based on the famous Ruth Nelson’s BYOP (Bring your own Parent) program designed to unlock the capabilities of the athletes and develop self-esteem and self-confidence.
Sessions will include a variety of split court game-like drills in small groups for increased number of repetitions and touches on the ball. Each session has emphasis on three contacts so participants will learn not just the skill but also how the ball moves on the court.
Any questions on this program can be sent to Reyes at email@example.com.
