Fridays at Four to (Re)Commence May 5th
We’ve had to take our annual sabbatical owing to the lack of court availability during the Club Volleyball season, but with the Club season winding down, we’re ready to (re)open the doors to Fridays at Four.
Fridays at Four is a structured open gym format just for the youngsters. It is held at SVC every Friday from 4 until 6 p.m.. The format features simple drills and game situations in a fun, relaxed atmosphere, designed to introduce the sport to this ultra-young age group in a low-stress environment.
There is no need to sign up in advance; just come whenever you can, pay $10 at the door and just have fun between the hours of 4 and 6 p.m. every Friday (unless cancelled in advance.) You may come and go as you please, so don’t stress if you can’t be there right at 4:00 or have to leave prior to 6:00.
The cost of this experience is $10/child, and first-timers will be admitted for $5. Perhaps more importantly, kids who bring a first-timer will also get in for 5 bucks. Can’t beat that!
Led by A5 11-1 Coach Walter Patterson, coach of one of the top U11 teams in the country, the session won’t be a free-for-all, but will feature some structure, with fun drills and limited instruction to beginning players. Many current players for nationally renowned A5 Volleyball Club first touched a volleyball at Fridays at Four. Further information about the program is available at http://FridaysAt4.com
This is not to be confused with the Youth Performance training offered by Volleyperformance, also geared for the youngsters, but whose focus is more on individual skills development. Volleyperformance trains at SVC as well. Indeed, Fridays at Four has become a feeder for Youth Performance for those young athletes with interest and aptitude who wish to take their games to the next level. Youth Performance is held every weekend at SVC. Further information is available here.
