Unlimited Membership FAQ
Can you explain the “Ready. Set. Play Volleyball!” Unlimited Membership Academy?
“Ready. Set. Play Volleyball!” is a year-round program; it is an academy-like membership perfect for 8-14 year old boys and girls that have a drive for learning more about volleyball and the desire to build their individual skills.
Our curriculum focuses on teaching and developing individual fundamental volleyball skills. The lessons, drills and progression of the program is curated by our coaching staff that have 50+ years of experience coaching high school varsity, collegiate and professional team levels. The program is designed to develop athletes in only 1 year.
After consistent participation in the program for 1 year the athlete will be prepared physically, mentally and technically to confidently try out for a club volleyball team, and not only be selected for the age-appropriate club volleyball team, but play at the travel team level for the best competitions in the surrounding states and nationally.
How many days a week? Is there any minimums or maximums of how many days a week they can participate in classes?
We currently have 2 classes a night, 5 nights a week. The membership provides you access to attend an unlimited amount of classes. There is no maximum limit; you can attend every class offered on the schedule. There is no minimum requirement; if you can attend only one class in a week, that’s fine. We highly encourage participating in as many classes as possible.
What skill level is the program designed for?
This program is designed for brand new beginners to low experienced volleyball players. It is designed to be the starting point for a boy or girl that has never played volleyball before. The low-experienced player has some experience in recreational (NYS) volleyball or has had an introduction to the sport at school, with a basic understanding and a little hands on play in PE class or on the school team (elementary or middle school).
Intermediate players would benefit from the focus on good fundamental skills and the repetition of the skills needed to improve their individual performance. Ultimately, the more times a player touches a volleyball with good technique the better they become.
How does my athlete get all crucial information if she’s only coming on a consistent schedule i.e. Tuesdays and Thursdays?
The classes are designed to cover individual skills and proper technique for volleyball fundamentals such as serving, passing, proper footwork, hitting and blocking. The lessons and drills are planned into each class on a rotating basis, so that an athlete is sure to get the training they need to develop all skills on their schedule.
What days a week and what times are the classes?
Monday: 7:00 – 8:30
Tuesday: 5:30 – 7:00
Wednesday: 7:00 – 8:30
Thursday: 5:30 – 7:00
Friday: 7:00 – 8:30
What experience do the coaches have?
The classes are directed by trained and experienced professional coaches. These are not volunteer coaches or parents of athletes in the program, who are learning as they go. Our youngest coaches have a minimum of 6 years playing highly competitive club volleyball and varsity high school level volleyball. Our most experienced coaches have over 30 years of playing and coaching experience at every level from beginner to professional teams.
