SMASHBALL aims to increase participation rates in volleyball through a modified game that makes the sport more enticing by focusing on the sport’s most exciting skill – the spike.

A few basics of the game:

  • Lower net and smaller court (usually played as 2v2 or 3v3)
  • In earlier progressions of the game, catching the ball and moving with the ball to the net is encouraged before spiking the ball over.
  • Early sessions will focus on the spike (armswing and footwork) as well as a basic serve.
  • Additional fundamental volleyball skills such as the forearm pass (bump) and overhead pass (set) are introduced during later progressions.

Fee: $70 (basic program) or $95 (includes your own Volleyball for practice at home)

For those opting into the the $95 option, the volleyball provided will a Tachikara Volley Lite ball which is a very high quality volleyball for developing players. ($25 is a VERY good deal for this ball)

A maximum of 24 participants can be accommodated in the program on a first come first serve basis.
