Youth volleyball coming to town
Submitted By Anahi Torres
Learning to play the net and when to spike the ball are important skills to have for successful volleyball players. While practicing these moves during a game is a good start, formal instruction and critiques by a teacher can make the difference between a good volleyball player and a great one.
For young people in the Fremont area who want to learn or develop their volleyball skills, the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) can help. The non-profit organization is forming an instructional volleyball league for boys and girls ages 7 to 15 that will meet Sept. 12 through Nov. 3.
The eight-week developmental league will meet twice a week and will teach players basic volleyball skills in a positive environment. The program is structured around the principles of participation, teamwork, skill development, sportsmanship, and fun. Practices and games operate in a coed format and offer participants the opportunity to develop self-esteem and confidence.
League practices will be 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays with games from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Irvington Community Park, 41885 Blacow Road, Fremont. The registration fee is $175 per student through Aug. 1; and $195 per student from Aug. 2 through Sept. 1. The fee includes a volleyball, T-shirt and end of season participation award for each player.
