Next Gen Mondays Boys/Girls 8-12


Next Gen training sessions are specifically designed to stress proper fundamentals and techniques for our youngest learners. Through progressive skill building, participants will see major improvement in their performance. Coaches will work toward applying skill development to game application and court play. All players will train together for a portion of the practice time with an emphasis on individual skill development.

Base teams with 9 players per team will be assigned after the first few sessions, according to age and skill level in order to form teams of players with similar ability. The teams will compete in four local RAVE (Raleigh Area Volleyball Event) tournaments at Netsports.

Next Gen will be run by a designated master coach and additional members of the NC Elite coaching staff.

There are no tryouts for Next Gen and is available on a first come, first serve basis until full to capacity.  Please email Micholene Schumacher with questions regarding the program
