2020 Grass Volleyball

NEW SESSIONS AVAILABLE - REGISTRATION Is Now Open!!

Lace up and take on a brand new outdoor option this summer with our 2020 Grass Volleyball training programs! Much like on the sand, grass volleyball provides athletes with a wide range of benefits that transition to the indoor game, including better conditioning, body control, increased vertical, improved all around volleyball skill-set, and teamwork. Feel free to check over the details and let us know if you have any questions. 

Grass Skills Camp

Sessions #2 and #3 of our Grass Skills Camp will run 2 hour practices twice per week, for a total of 6 training dates. Session #2 will be held July 6th-July 16th and Session #3 will be held July 20th-July 30th.  All practices will be held at Fairview on the fields near our usual gym entrance. Please note that you should keep the athlete's grade for the upcoming fall in mind when registering (9th grade in the fall = High School registration).

Grass Positional Training

Based on one of D1's classic indoor summer camps, our Grass Positional Training camp dives into what it takes for each role on the court to operate effectively and consistently at a high level. While our other training options cover a general gamut of skills, this session will hone in on the specifics of your primary position. Each practice will run for 1.5 hours, twice per week for a total of 4 training dates beginning the week of July 20th and ending the week of July 30th.

Grass Team Training

This program emphasizes game-like scenarios and drills, allowing for athletes to engage with some of the competitive aspects of training in a 3v3 and 4v4 format.  We understand that with 2019-2020 seasons being cut short across the board, many athletes are still hungry for this style of play and training, so we wanted to be sure to provide an option that focuses on those opportunities. 

Each practice will run for 1.5 hours, and this option will be available once a week, on Fridays. During registration you may pick and choose which dates best fit your schedule. 

*Disclaimer - you do not need a pre-existing team nor are we assigning teams, this is simply training that focuses on team play rather than specific skill work!
