Diamondback VBC Youth Academy

By Axel Hernandez, 04/07/17, 2:30PM MDT


Diamondback Volleyball Club is excited to announce the creation of our Youth Academy (previously know as mini-volleyball) to better serve young athletes in Las Cruces and surrounding areas. 

The Youth Academy is dedicated to teach young athletes individual skills through drills, repetition, and competition in a fun positive environment. 

The focus is on:

- proper overhand and underhand passing technique;

- court movement;

- attacking skills;

- proper setting technique and footwork;

- defensive skills;

- and how to properly pass, set, hit at an early age.

The Youth Academy currently offers 3 levels: Level 1 (3rd-4th Grade), Level 2 (5th-6th Grade), Level 3 (7th-8th Grade).

There are two other levels that we will be offering in the near future: VolleyTikes (2 y/o-Kindergarten) and VolleyTots (1st-2nd Grade).

The upcoming session will have Level 1, 2 and 3. Each young athlete will be placed in a team to compete in our new Youth League which will take place on Saturdays (May 13th, & 27th, and June 10th, & 24th). Teams will play at least two games each Saturday. This league will be competitive to prepare our young athletes for their upcoming middle and high school season.

There will be an Open House on April 25th (7-8:30pm) to discuss all of our upcoming summer events to include our Youth Academy.
