Youth Volleyball Español
Hit the courts with the folks who invented the game - the Y!
Originally called mintonette, volleyball was created by the YMCA. Mintonette combined a variation of the badminton net with elements of basketball, the German game of fistball and handball. The first volleyball game was played at Springfield College in 1896. The philosophy of YMCA youth sports programs is to use sports as a tool to develop each participant physically, mentally and spiritually.
Youth volleyball programs & volleyball clinics at the Y emphasize the values of good sportsmanship, teamwork, goal setting and skill development in a fun, esteem-promoting atmosphere.
Kids & teens will have the opportunity to learn the basic volleyball fundamentals such as underhand serving, setting, hitting and digging in a non-competitive environment.
