Columbia’s finest youth volleyball program is designed to teach the girls the sport starting in 3rd grade all the way through High School. It is an instructional program that teaches the fundamental skills and court movement. Synergy offers 3 different levels of practice and play. Each level focuses on the individual development of the player, while teaching them to understand the game of volleyball as a team.
Our beginner group (3rd-4th graders) learns proper posture, footwork and an understanding of court movement and positions. The girls use a lighter ball and play on a net that is 7 feet high in order to learn the proper techniques of the sport. They will learn serving, passing and setting.
Synergy’s Intermediate group (5th-6th graders who have played previously) takes their practices and skills to the next level. We focus on repetition of the fundamental skills as well as court positions and movement. Players will be introduced to overhand serving, passing (forearm underhand passing), setting (overhead passing), attack options (hitting/spiking), blocking (from attack and defend positions) and defensive skills (rolling and sliding). This group is designed to help players that are considering playing for their school or club teams in the future. The girls in this level still practice and play on a 7 foot net and use a volley lite ball. Practices will include SAFT (speed agility fitness training) in them each week as well to enure the overall volleyball fintess of the girls.
The Advanced group (7th grade and up) simulates game situations and gives players the opportunity to take their game to the next level. They continue to work on all their skills on the court while focusing on accuracy, movement and game play. At Synergy our goal for this group is to develop the whole player on the court and keep them playing in between their school and club seasons.
All our volleyball programs will meet twice a week for one practice and one game on late Saturday afternoons. The Rec Volleyball program will practice at the Synergy Sports Facility.
