VolleyU 2019/2020

 

Volley U™ training sessions are specifically designed to stress proper fundamentals and techniques. 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.

Volley U™ is run by Development Director Casey Laing and additional members of the NC Elite coaching staff.

There are no tryouts for Volley U™. Volley U™ is available on a first come, first serve basis with registration opening on September 16, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.  This program is very popular and fills to capacity quickly.  Please email Casey Laing with questions regarding the program at volleyu@ncelitevb.org.
