ATOMIC VOLLEYBALL

9 to 12 years old

The Atomic Volleyball program is ideal for students Grades 4-6 but can easily be utilized at the Grade 7-8 levels.

It is a grassroots program, designed for 1-1.5 hour sessions once a week for 8-10 weeks. Each week young athletes are taught basic fundamental skills followed by a 4-on-4 game on lowered nets. Atomic Volleyball stresses fun, fairplay, and participation by increasing the number of ball contacts per player, creating longer and more successful rallies, and by developing proper skill delivery.

Equipment is especially designed for youth and the requirements of growing bodies. The game is played using lighter and softer balls on a badminton court, with the net at badminton height (max. 2 meters), and 4 players per side. This gives the athletes maximum opportunity to play the ball and have success.

The Atomic program provides a background for athletes to continue to play in other Elementary, Intramural, and High School programs.

Athletes will:

  • Learn the basic skills of volleyball.
  • Practice the skills through modified game play.
  • Use a 4 on 4 format to learn game play.

ATOMIC SMASHBAL

Atomic Smashbal is a volleyball game-play variation that emphasizes attacking (hitting/spiking) and helps athletes learn the basic skills of volleyball through modified game play.

How is it Played?

  • Off of an ATTACK – the receiving team can catch the ball directly, OR after the ball bounces once, and still continue the rally
  • Off of a SERVED or TOSSED ball – the receiving team is expected to catch/play the ball directly (no bounce)
  • As the players’ skills improve they are encouraged to progress (transition) to the use of volleyball skills for all contacts (‘passes’) during game play.
