The Development League is a 10 week program that teaches the fundamentals of volleyball through a mix of instruction, drills, and competition. The Development League caters to participants from grades 5 to 8. It is recommended that participants have a basic understanding of the sport of volleyball. Each participant will be placed on a team, and will stay together for the duration of the program. We will make every effort to place friends on the same team! Sessions will begin with a warm up then will transition to drills. Players will learn and practice serving, passing, and hitting, and will learn how to play defense within a team system. By the end of the program players will be more skilled individually and will be better team players.Each weekly session is 1.5 hours in length and includes 30 minutes of instruction and drills, with 60 minutes of game play. Participants will receive an official Pakmen Jersey T-shirt. The 10 week program will end with playoffs and a championship series on the last day.
