Ready. Set. Spike! Hit the net with the folks who invented the game - the Y! Originally called mintonette, volleyball was created by the YMCA. An experimental game, mintonette combined a variation of the badminton net with elements of basketball, the German game of fistball and handball. Emphasis is on teaching the values of good sportsmanship, teamwork, goal setting and skill development in a fun, esteem-promoting atmosphere. Children will have the opportunity to learn the basic volleyball fundamentals such as underhand serving, setting, hitting, and digging in a non-completive environment.
All YMCA sports leagues are coached by volunteers, the YMCA does not provide paid coaches. We are always looking for great coaches for all sports.

We will provide all the training you need to be a great coach.
