Volley 101 - A 10 week volleyball course for adult beginners
Sun 23 October 2016, 19:45 – 21:00 BST
Please note that the stated cost covers all ten weeks of the course - dates below.
What’s it all about?
Volley 101 is intended to be an all-round developmental package for adults who want to learn to play volleyball but have either never picked up a volleyball before or only have had a limited exposure to the sport.
The course, which will run over ten weeks, will teach beginners the basic skills they will need to play volleyball, including the volley, the dig, the serve, the spike and the block. The course will also look at the basic rules and, crucially, how the game is actually played – positions, positional discipline and the Tamworth club system, which is used in all mixed training sessions. The idea of the ten week programme is that at the end of the course, players will feel confident enough in their skills and knowledge of the game to join either men’s or women’s squad training, and to hopefully be selected for one of the club’s four squads.

The course will run on selected Sunday nights from 7.45pm – 9.00pm on the following dates:

What will I learn?
There will be a twin emphasis on learning the game and having fun. By taking part in a course, rather than ad hoc sessions, all participants should progress at a roughly equal rate, making the sessions more fun for all.
The course will cover:
Basic rules and terminology
How a volleyball team operates
The course will be staffed by fully qualified (level 2) coaches, who will focus on a specific aspect of the game each week, building on these foundations week by week, until, by the latter third of the course, players are comfortable with their skills and how to use them on court, in a game situation.
