Volleystart is by far the best way to introduce volleyball to young kids! It’s amazing to see how quickly 2nd and 3rd graders can pick up the core fundamentals when taught the proper form and technique in a fun, encouraging environment.

WHAT IS VOLLEYSTART?

Volleystart is a program designed for young, aspiring volleyball players. A series of 5-6, 90 minute sessions combine movement training, introduction to fundamental skills, and fun games and drills. Players will be taught correct footwork, movements and form from the very first day in the gym, which has proven to lay the foundation for successful volleyball careers.

The strong foundation of skills that my daughter received through the top-notch Volleystart coaching has given her the opportunity to participate on advanced teams and instilled in her a true love for the sport. Both of my daughters have had a blast in the Volleystart program and I would recommend it highly!!

PROGRAM BACKGROUND & HISTORY

Volleystart was founded in 2007 by Kevin Seeley and Craig Wong to fill in the gaps of instruction commonly occurring in 7-12 year olds around Marin County and to address the challenges of introducing young players to a complex game.

The size of the court, the height of the net, the weight of the ball, and the pace of the game is not well-suited for most athletes younger than 11 or 12 years old. As a result, most kids’ introduction to volleyball is a lot of standing around waiting for their turn to serve the ball into the net.

Other sports have been well-tailored to the younger athlete with more appropriate sized fields, equipment, teams and rules. As a result, sports like soccer are much more appealing than volleyball for young players and their coaches and parents. Volleystart is a program that is designed to change all of that...our goal is to make volleyball an exciting, challenging, fast-paced game for kids as young as 7 years old.

We were among the very first clubs in the country designing programs for young players. After almost ten years of watching how Volleystart has provided the foundation of dozens of successful Marin volleyball players, we are confident and excited about launching the next generation of athletes. 

Hope to see you in our gyms soon!
