What is this Mini-Games thing?
There's two objectives to mini games:
1. Provide a large amount of 'touches' or repetitions of volleyball actions to any skill level player, beginner or advanced.
2. To give some light instruction on the most important skills needed to succeed in volleyball. Then, follow up with game-like activity (mini-games).
The first 45mins is instructional practice. Players will be taught step by step how to do basic volleyball skills, focusing on the most important skills such as serving, passing etc and the rules.
The last 45 mins they will play games continually with occasional water breaks. It is Mini-Game Style play.
Mini-Games Style Play
Teams are randomly selected based on age and skill. Each team will play 7-10 min rounds and the scores will be tallied for each round. Individual scores are tallied simply for mental motivation. Teams will be randomized again from the new groups, and the next couple rounds will be played.
What is great about Mini-Games?
Teams are small (2 to 4 players) and the court is also smaller, making rallies longer (=more touches), individuals will get many repetitions from a versatility of skills (setting, serving, passing and hitting).
What do we need?
Players will only need athletic attire, and a water bottle. All other required equipment is provided. They do not need teammates as they are provided randomly each game. They will not need to attend every week if there is a scheduling conflict. We do request written communication regarding attendance, like an email or text message if a player will be gone.
