A Development Program for Girls & Boys Ages 5-15
PEAK Academy is the youth development program for Mtn Peak Volleyball. The program focuses on developing good, strong fundamentals in girls and boys ages 5-15 to help prepare them for a future competitive environment. We are dedicated to teaching quality fundamentals to all athletes and helping each athlete develop a love for the game of volleyball. Each session is open to athletes ages 5-15; youth ages 5-7 will play with V Soft balls on a special net, 11 and under will play with Volley Lites on a U12 net and ages 12-14 will play with a regular ball on a women's size net.
The monthly program offers lessons that each feed into the next to create a seamless introduction of skills sets with a series of matching muscle-memory based touches. It blends fun challenges on the court with age-appropriate homework that reinforces progress.
Athletes also have the opportunity to join our Academy teams during the club season once they are regular for competitive game play. Academy teams will practice twice per week and attend 1-2 regional tournaments. Additional costs will apply for those wanting to participate on Academy teams.
