OHLONE JUNIORS BOYS SEASON UPDATE

[August 13, 2019]

Due to the lack of participant interest and the lack of staffing, we have unfortunately decided to not field boys teams for the upcoming 2019 fall season. We do plan on hosting other boys (co-ed) programming in the Winter and Spring. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

 

MiniVolley Pilot Program

[July 22, 2019]

Coming this Fall is our new MiniVolley program! Designed for the youngest beginners of volleyball, the MiniVolley method of learning puts a unique spin on practice and competition while still learning the fundamentals of the game.

Open to Girls and Boys grades 2-4 and grades 4-6, the goal is to provide young athletes with an introduction to the sport of volleyball through instruction and training within a program called MiniVolley. MiniVolley is a version of volleyball incorporating the same fundamentals in a differing scoring system to promote the use of those skills. A lighter ball, and smaller court dimensions are also incorporated in this spinoff of standard volleyball. This is a pilot program with hopes of joining and competing in MiniVolley events to be held in the future. Participants will be separated based on grade level (e.g. grades 2 and 3 together and/or grades 3 and 4 together, etc.) and/or physical abilities. We have a ratio of one coach to groups of 6-10 athletes per group. Athletes will receive approximately 45-60 minutes of practice time, followed by approximately 45-60 minutes of competition time during the practice sessions. We are hosting a FREE one-day tournament on Sunday, August 18 to apply the skills into a friendly, encouraging competitive environment. Send your RSVP to director Jeremy Penaflor at jpenaflor@ohlone.edu
