More About Us
AirBorne Volleyball is a Developmental Program that was started in August 2009 by Linda Irvine who serves as the Director. After coaching on the varsity level, Coach Irvine recognized the great need for kids to receive proper instruction in the sport. Many had participated in youth sports in their communities but had developed "bad form" that was hard to break. At AirBorne Volleyball the goal is to teach proper form in a fun enviornment. We want to assist the local junior highs in "preparing" their future athletes. In addition, it is our goal that the kids that come through our program will earn starting positions on school and club teams.
At Airborne Volleyball every participant will receive the same instruction and the coaches will help everyone advance at "their pace". Proper form of all skills is a must. In addition to form and skills work, there will be fun games played at every practice with an in-house tournament on the last night of the session. Coaches will "build" on skills learned.Each session we try to offer 2 Saturday tournaments but this varies from session to session based on enrollment and other gyms schedules.
Ten Week Sessions
AirBorne is a great place to start (beginners welcome) and to take it to the next level and have a lot of fun while you do. Practices are geared toward the quick advancement of skills. Conditioning- core training and drills that will be seen on the junior high and club courts are taught. Our training is for the beginner and also those preparing for junior high, club try-outs and high school. We work on "progression" - once a skill is learned - we take it to the next level. Each practice will have 1 hour of drills and instruction and 1/2 hour of team training and tournament play. 1-2 tournaments will be offered each session.
Private Lessons & Summer Camps - 3rd - 8th Grade
We offer private lessons for 5th-8th graders. We also do team training and hold "open gyms" each summer for 7th-8th graders. Kids form teams with others from their school and compete. Open gyms are a great way to get in the gym before school or club try-outs.
