The Sporting Schools website is scheduled for an update this weekend from 9am AEDT Saturday 22 February to 6pm AEDT Sunday 23 February. The portals will not be accessible during these times.
Volleyball is a highly inclusive, dynamic, non-contact sport that requires minimal equipment. It can be played on grass, an oval, the beach or indoors - almost anywhere! Court size and net height can also be adjusted to accommodate varying levels of ability, making it a great choice for all skill levels.
Kids Volley and School Volley delivered by Spikezone are designed to introduce students to the game of Volleyball. Primary and secondary school programs can be modified to suit various group sizes, skill levels and ages to ensure players have a fun experience while learning the new skills.
Primary School Program
Kids Volley, delivered by Spikezone is designed for primary school students and aims to provide an opportunity for all participants to experience and enjoy the game of volleyball, while learning the fundamental skills of the sport.
Like volleyball, Spikezone is about getting the ball over the net in three hits or fewer and winning the rally because the ball hits the ground in the opposition’s court, the opposition fails to return the ball over the net in three hits or the opposition hits the ball out of court.
Secondary School Program
School Volley, delivered by Spikezone, available for secondary school students ages 12 - 14, is an ideal fit as it is a dynamic sport that can be played on any surface, anywhere and anytime.
The aim of the program is to provide an opportunity for all participants to experience and enjoy the game of volleyball, while offering a targeted approach for women and girls.
We aim to connect female participants with local female volleyball coaches as an engaging and innovative approach to address physical inactivity among young women and girls.
This approach will be delivered through five focus points:
- Participation opportunities, not competitive opportunities - with a female focus to have a positive and enjoyable experience (students, teacher and coaches)
- Game Sense approach to session delivery to keep participants engaged
- Physically active – lifestyle fitness (play at your own pace)
- Fun and engaging
- Q & As
