Jr Ducks

Junior Ducks is all skills training program, where athletes will develop and grow in a fun and challenging learning environment. The focus of the training will be to teach the fundamentals of volleyball: passing, setting, serving, attacking and defense, and athletic development. Our primary goal with this program is to introduce male and female athletes to the game of volleyball, and to grow their passion for the game.

We offer two streams of Junior Ducks to ensure our athletes are receiving appropriate training. Please identify your level when registering:

  • Level 2 – Athlete has previous club volleyball experience or has participated in an extensive Ducks training program 

Programs are offered throughout the year, the estimated months of training are below, however, are subject to change based on gym availability and demand:

  • Fall (September to November) 
  • Winter (January to March) 
  • Spring (April to June)
