The biggest emphasis at this age level is to introduce the athletes to the basic skills of volleyball. The basic skills are serving, setting, passing and attacking. Proper footwork and court movement will be stressed. A basic offense and a three or four person serve receive will be used. Athletes will be trained to work and communicate as a team on the court. These age levels (Chips – 11 & 12, Shavings – 8, 9 & 10) are offered as an introduction to the Ice experience and to instill a love of the game in our younger players. Chips teams will compete in a few tournaments; whereas Shavings is strictly an instructional program.
