Our Academy sports program is designed to give young volleyball athletes aged 8 and under the fundamental skills and knowledge to develop into volleyball players. Players will be trained through drills and live game play to learn the basics of volleyball, the value of teamwork, dedication and sportsmanship. They will meet at the Bettendorf Y on Thursdays, for an hour, for a duration of 6 weeks. Groups will be coed and sessions will be run by YMCA coaches and volunteer parents.

Volleyball Rec League Play – 9 – 12 years old

(Games on Thursday Nights; practices on separate days based on coach/team decision)

Leagues for:  9U, 10U, 11U, 12U 

Volleyball is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills as part of a co-ed team. Players will learn the fundamentals, focusing on basic skill development and proper technique. Participants then progress from learning the rules to developing skills in the areas of underhand and overhand serving, setting, spiking, and digging.

YMCA rec leagues promise no try outs, no getting cut and no bench warmers! Every child plays at least half of every game, officiated by our YMCA officials.

Games will be played on Thursday nights between 6:00pm – 8:00pm at the Bettendorf Y. Practices will be once a week for an hour on a set weeknight, the time and day will be decided by the coach, starting from the week commencing Monday March 30th.

We rely on volunteer parent coaches to focus on participation and fun, while basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games. If you are able to volunteer your time to coach a team please check the box on the registration form or contact the Sports director.
