Register
Is your 8-12 year old athlete really loving volleyball at her recreation league? This summer, give the beginner a chance to jump in and learn how to do more than just bump volleyballs over a net. The EDGE is running our popular Little Spikers program over the summer. Get her into our program where she can raise her game to the next level! Little Spiker starts with the fundamentals of proper and effective technique and progresses toward full, pass-set-hit, transitional game play as the clinic goes on.The EDGE has a great record of success preparing young players for the game. Most of our Little Spikers move on to compete in Gold Crown, club, and high school. Several of our own young players, currently on EDGE teams, started in our Little Spikers program and now compete among the top club teams in the state.Since summer time is vacation time, we slashed the length, and price, of the Little Spikers clinics in half to fit your summer schedule. For the summer, Little Spikers clinics will run for 4 weeks at a cost of $100 per session.There will be sessions in May, June, and July. If you would like to sign up for all 3, you’ll get a $50 discount ($250) for the summer! And while we recommend the continuity of a full session, players are welcome to drop in on any session for $25.

WHAT: Little Spikers Beginner/Advanced-Beginner Training
WHEN:

  • Session 1: May 9 – 30. Every Saturday from 12p – 2pm ($100)
  • Session 2: June 7 – 28. Every Sunday from 12p – 2pm ($100)
