It is just what the “volleyball” doctor ordered for girls in grades 9-12 interested in taking up volleyball or who are looking to improve their skills.
Meant to complement the successful volleyball programs at Seaway District High School, an Ontario Volleyball “Spikes” eight-week program will start Thursday, November 8. It is open to girls in grades 9-12 in South Dundas and the surrounding area, but will be limited to the first 32 girls who register.
“It is meant to provide fitness, skills and scrimmages as well as a couple of exhibition matches to interested participants,” says organizer Andy Lee. “No previous experience is necessary.”
The Spikes program, developed by the Ontario Volleyball Association, is meant to develop and interest players in the game. The drills and games are designed so that everyone has lots of fun and learns volleyball skills like never before.
All participants receive a Spikes® t-shirt.
“I would hope that this girls program could be extended into a boys program next year, and also involve younger ages, if someone would want to lead them,” says Lee. “We are relying on the knowledge of local persons to assist in the program as well as the Spikes program direction.”
The Spikes program will run on designated Thursday nights from 7-8:30 p.m. for eight weeks from November 8 to January 10 at Seaway District High School. The cost is $50 per player.
