Pee Wee Volleyball has 27 participants
Prairie Pee Wee Volleyball has 27 players attending. This is the first year that volleyball as been offered to the younger grades. Larger and lighter sized volleyballs are used for this level of play. This allows the players to learn form and technique, verses need for physical strength. Players are taught different skills throughout the session, and then split up into 4 teams to play volleyball. All players received a t-shirt. Volunteer coaches: Kelli Bruner, Bobbi Tidwell, Makenzie Moea'i, Amanda Stamper aid in individual help on the court. "The players are starting to learn the basics of volleyball. We are able to teach them the rotations, passing, setting and even hitting skills, along with serving. Players are also taught the importance of teamwork and encouraging their teammates at all times of the game", said Coach Danette Coleman, "it is a good start to building an interest in volleyball, and allowing players to develop the skills needed at an earlier age."
Prairie Pee Wee Volleyball will continue on December 4th at 9:00 am to 11:00 am. The final session will be on Dec. 11th.
