Details:
The program’s goal is to teach basic volleyball skills in a non-competitive environment. Any games played will be without scoring to avoid placing too much pressure on winning, rather to focus on performing. All divisions will have coaches teaching players the basic skills. The first part of the evening will include a coaching session followed by organized games for players to practice their new skills. Players may be moved during the season as their skills improve. Coaches will have high school, college level coaching and tournament experience.

Directions: (enter 286 Hawkins Rd., Centereach, NY 11720 into your
