What do the sessions look like?
Each session will start out with some basic skill instruction led by our lead coaches. We will then allow teams to practice the skill. Afterwards we just let them play a game. During game play, athletes are allowed up to 5 serves - meaning they will serve until they either miss their serve, or have reached 5 made serves.
Can my family and I watch?
ABSOLUTELY! - Please note that we have a smaller space for spectators. Please be sure to keep conversations at a low volume so that the kids can hear the full instruction. Please also be sure to keep siblings off and away from all equipment at all times.
How are teams created?
We build teams based on school and personal perference expressed on your forms. If your athlete wants to play with her friends, please mention names on your registration form.
What is your Mission Statement?
CAVC is prideful on teaching game knowledge and promoting FUN! We promote making mistakes to learn, and celebrate the success. We try everything we can to avoid making kids run as punishment. Positive reinforcement and minimal conditioning is used while our main focus is volleyball. Fitness is important, but it won't be used as a daunting punishment.
