Mini Volley Program for Girls in Grades 1-4
Again this spring, the Athletic Association will be offering a “MiniVolley” program to introduce girls in grades 1 through 4 to the game of volleyball. The program is designed to teach kids the fundamentals of volleyball by using adaptations such as softer, lighter volleyballs designed for younger kids along with shorter nets and smaller courts. The program will be held on the following Sundays, at the Conewago Campus gym: March 24 – Grades 1&2 4:00-5:00, Grades 3&4 5:15-6:15
March 31 – Grades 1&2 3:00-4:00, Grades 3&4 4:15-5:15
April 7 – Grades 1&2 3:00-4:00, Grades 3&4 4:15-5:15
April 14 – Grades 1&2 1:00-2:00, Grades 3&4 2:15-3:15 A registration form can be found here. There is a $15 registration fee this season. At the end of the program, each player will take home one of the lighter volleyballs that we use. Please return the registration forms to the school office by March 15, to the attention of: Carli Lehr, MiniVolley.
We will need several parent volunteers to assist with practices. If you are interested in helping, please email Carli Lehr at email@example.com by March 22. No volleyball experience is necessary, just a willingness to help the kids stay on task and focused on the activities at hand! Clearances are required.
