ATOMIC VOLLEYBALL in Cornwall
The Atomic Volleyball program is a great tool for teaching children the basics of the sport and getting them ready for the more complex 6 on 6 game when they are older. As a companion program to Volleyball Canada’s successful Mini-Volley program, Atomic Volleyball continues to build on the Mini-Volley concepts. This program focuses on fair play, skill development, teamwork and most of all a rewarding game-play experience. Its larger goal is to develop a passion for the sport in the younger players of the game! Atomic Volleyball can be incorporated into a recreation program. It incorporates principles established in the Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) athlete development model for Learning to Train Stage athletes. In the Atomic program, the traditional 6 on 6 game has been modified. The game is played 4 on 4 to increase player involvement, increase the number of times each player regularly contacts the ball, and raise a young player’s confidence. The game is also very adaptable. Nets are lowered to heights appropriate for the size and age of the players. Fun and participation are the primary objectives of the program not competition. UPEI Women’s Head Volleyball Coach, Josh Corkum, certified volleyball NCCP Level 2 coach and qualified atomic instructor will lead this program.

Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
