Thank you for allowing your student the opportunity to be a part of our Elementary After School Volleyball Program. Program is opened to Girls in 4th-6th Grade. The after school Volleyball program is designed to teach participants basic fundamental skills of the game. For some of you it is your child’s first experience with the program. Here are a few things that will help you and your child have a great experience.
1.) Register them online/here at https://www.familyid.com/organizations/grace-christian-school. Cost is $100 charged to your FACTs Account. It only takes about 5 minutes to register.
2.) Have your child bring a light healthy snack. There will be time when they can rest and eat a snack.
3.) Students need to wear shorts, T-shirts and court shoes.
4.) The T-shirt or Jersey your child receives will be theirs to keep. Please write their names on it if they aren't already on there.
5.) Elementary students are dismissed from school at 2:45pm. Those students who are involved with the After School Basketball Program will stay with their teachers at the normal dismissal location until 3:00pm, when at that time their teachers will escort them to the South Gym or North Gym where they will be supervised by program personnel. Students who are normally in after school care: These students will go to after school care as they normally do and then will be signed out from ASC by program personnel and taken to the South Gym. Those students will then be signed back in to ASC after the program ends at 4:45pm.
6.) As a reminder non After School Care students need to be picked up no later than 5:00pm. Students not picked by 5:00pm will be signed in to the ASC program and charged the appropriate fee.
7.) Students must be signed out with the parent’s signature when they are picked up from the gym. There will be a sign out sheet at the door.
Program Information: This is an introduction to volleyball for grade school students. Students will learn and work on basic volleyball skills. This will include basic positioning, movement around the court, passing, setting, serving, and spike approach. Our goal is to give your child great introduction and as many ball contacts as possible. These are skills your child could practice on their own with No Court needed. For several of the drills no ball is even needed. These fundamentals are critical for their development into a fabulous future Grizzly volleyball player!
Coaching our Program this year will be Coach Wendy Baumeister:
