The Community Program is designed for Clubs and Community Centres engaging youth from 9-12 years old. This 8-week plan provides all the materials you need to deliver a fun and active program!
The Community 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 Elementary Program, the Community Program continues to build on these 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!
The Community Program can be incorporated into any physical education class, volleyball club or community program. It incorporates principles established in the Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) athlete development model for Learn to Train Stage athletes.

Atomic Volleyball Instructors Manual:
Provides an eight-week program where skills can be acquired in a practice setting. During each session, time is spent equally on skill development and game play. Each session plan is easily adapted to the skill level of a group. Whether the players are novices or advanced, Atomic Volleyball is adjustable!
The program is self-directed so anyone can teach this program: teachers, coaches, sport programmers. No significant volleyball experience required!
