Next to gymnastics, football and basketball Kids Volley is one of the most popular sports in Denmark. Kids in age 6-11 are participating in this type of volleyball. They are divided into 4 levels (age and skills). To be honest I didn’t know how popular Kids Volley actually is, till we signed up for our first tournament.
In our school Kids Volley is something new, we decided to introduce it to our students in August 2015 – beginning of the school year. We didn’t really know what to expect. On the first practice, we had 10 students, who just wanted to have fun and learn basics rules about this new sport they signed up for. We noticed very quick that Kids Volley become very popular – the game which is all about throwing the ball over the net and rotating on the court. The biggest interest in this we could see after our first tournament.
We had 2 teams, which took 1st and 2nd place. Pictures of smiling athletes with their medals everybody could see at school. Kids were talking about how great the tournament was and how much fun they had over the weekend. Could we ask for better advertisement?
From one week to another we had more students coming to practice. More parents were asking if their child can also join the team. You can only imagine how great surprise for me it was to see 30 players on the last practice of the season. I wasn’t really aware how popular Kids Volley can be. I am very proud to be a part of developing the program in my school.
If you are considering to start something new don’t think too long. You only need a badminton net, volleyball balls and motivation to start and inspire. On this blog you can find all the information, examples of drills, inspiration, and motivation – I will update and share all of it. If you don’t want to wait to feel free to contact me and I will help you.
Have a good evening,
