The VISION Mini Volleyball program is offered to girls & boys in grades 3-5. Boys & Girls in grade 6 are introduced to full-court volleyball through our VISION Youth Academy which is integrated into the Premier League Program. Experienced players in grade 5 can also ask to be transferred to the VISION Youth Academy.
The VISION Mini Volleyball program is designed for the young athlete interested in learning the FUNdamentals of the game. First started in 1999, it is one of the longest running mini-volleyball programs in Canada and has developed unique techniques in teaching young children the skills of the game.
The Program is separated into three distinctive fall, winter and spring seasons. These are "development camps" with an instructor training young athletes. Each session involves participation in warm-up games, skill development and team play. Each season ends with an organized, friendly tournament.
Mini volleyball is a co-ed 3-on-3 or 4-on-4 game played on badminton courts. The nets are raised to 6’ with the use of extension poles. These changes provide younger players with a better opportunity to develop the skills of the game while experiencing some much-needed success.
All camps are overseen by a trained VISION Mini Volleyball instructor, trained in our program’s unique training methodology. Camps are designed for the beginner looking for an "All-Skills Camp." Every drill incorporates games so young athletes maintain their interest in the exercises.
In brief, we strongly believe our camps offer the best technical instruction in the province. These are high intensity, fast-paced camps with certified club volleyball coaches.

BENEFITS to participants include
Mini-Volleyball is a sport that was invented in the town of Taiki which is on Japan's northern most island of Hokkaido. The rules are very similar to volleyball, but the ball and the size of the court differ from the standard game. The sport has achieved significant international popularity as an activity that can be enjoyed by younger volleyball enthusiasts. The key elements of the program are the modifications that have been introduced to make it more conducive to the physical development of junior participants.
THESE MODIFICATIONS INCLUDE
• A lighter ball
• A lower net – 2 meters high
• A smaller court – approximately 13 meters by 6.5 meters
• Fewer players on the court to encourage greater participation
Parents interested in coaching their children volunteer as assistant instructors during the fall camps to learn how our instructors train young athletes in the fundamentals of the game. At the conclusion of the program, athletes will be placed on a team and participate in a season-ending tournament where their parents coach them throughout the event.
