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.

Dates:  APRIL 17 - JUNE 5  (Thursdays)
Ages: 6 – 12 years
Time:  6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Location:  WESTWOOD SCHOOL
Cost:  $40.00 PER PERSON.

To register, contact the Cornwall Parks & Recreation Department at 628-6260.

Centre of Excellence program

Volleyball PEI is extremely excited to announce we will be launching our Centre of Excellence program beginning on November 24th, 2013. Below is a brief overview of the program however you will find a much broader scope of the program attached.

What is the Volleyball PEI - Centre of Excellence?

The Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence is specifically designed to prepare high performance volleyball athletes to take their game to the next level. The Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence is meant to compliment, NOT REPLACE, our existing school and club programs. The Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence will add additional training to increase skill development for our elite athletes.

Why was the Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence Created?

In Canada we have developed guiding principles to lay a road map that allows our athletes to reach their full potential in both a High Performance and an Active for Life environment. These principles come from our Long Term Athlete Development model, or LTAD for short. Volleyball PEI's role is to provide leadership and support for implementation of LTAD.

Our young developing athletes spend more time in competition (playing games) than in training and development (practice). To add to this, practice time is typically spent on developing team systems in preparation for games. While this produces short term success on the court, the technical skills of our athletes are being left behind.

Here is what our Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence will look like:

Location: Bluefield High School
Ages (Male & Female): 13-18 year olds – 36 total spaces available
Schedule: Sunday, November 24th – Sunday, February 23rd. The program will run from 1-3pm each Sunday. There will be no program sessions on December 22nd & December 29th due to the holiday season.

The Volleyball PEI Centre of Excellence is developed based on an integrated sport performance team environment, including a number of services to complement high performance athlete development. Physical assessments, testing, integrated strength and conditioning are part of the program offered by Volleyball PEI. Working with leading experts in Nutrition, Sport Psychology, and Athlete Development, the Centre program ensures cutting edge athlete training.

Focusing on Team Canada/Provincial Team Pathway athletes (Grade 8-12) ready to take their game to the next level, committed high school and club athletes as well as Regional, Provincial, National recognized athletes will benefit from the training received in the Centre. Training is based specifically on individual skill development. A very low coach to athlete ratio allows for lots of personal feedback, ball contacts and progress for athlete success.

Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence’s professional team of coaches, many of which coach at and have associations with local College and University teams, receive training and development from the National Coaches Certification Program. Each one understands what it takes to excel at the next level and what each athlete needs to do to be successful both on and off the court.

What’s included:
- high level of individual athlete skill development

- Great athlete to coach ratios

- Partnership with key sport science service providers to provide support in the areas of:

o Nutrition
o Mental skills training
o Strength & conditioning

- 2 Volleyball PEI – Centre of Excellence Dri-fit Training shirts

Who is this open to:

Elite athletes aged of 13-18 years. If you played in the PEISAA (Midget and Senior divisions) and were an All-Star or received recognition throughout the season, or you have played on our Provincial Teams in the past, we are looking for you.

If you would like to be considered for our program, but don’t yet meet the above criteria, please contact us and we, through an application process, will definitely consider your application.
