STL Youth Program (Coed Tots, 8s & 10s)

Welcome to our Youth Program (COED Tots, 8s & 10s)

At HIGH PERFORMANCE - STL  our Youth Program provides professional developmental instruction to girls and boys volleyball players Kindergarten-2nd Grade (8s) and 3rd-4th Grade (10s) in a fun, exciting and  high paced atmosphere with a low athlete to coach ratio.  These programs are designed for players of all skill levels.

OUR FOCUS is simple. Highly qualified experienced coaches will teach your player the proper fundamentals of volleyball. As they grow and physically mature they will be prepared as volleyball players. The most important factor in an athlete’s development is establishing sound fundamentals.  Without fundamentals, gains that an athlete makes through maturity, experience and physicality can never result in a player reaching their maximum potential.  The first half of each 90 minute session will focus on skill instruction and proper athletic movement through high paced training exercises.  The second half is dedicated to game situations.  Our goal is to develop your athletes so they will be prepared to put the skill sets they are taught into action. This will allow them to better understand the individual parts of the game and will create the tools needed for further court development.

STL Coed 10's Program (2019-2020 Season)

The 10s PROGRAM size will max out at 64 athletes and will focus on establishing proper technique for the six skills of volleyball (Serving, Passing, Setting, Hitting, Blocking, Digging) while teaching offensive/defensive systems, as well as coaching proper footwork and movement. As we have done with all of our age groups, our plan is created with the purpose for these players to become an 11u volleyball team player.

NEW for 2019-2020 Season: 10U Royal & Orange Teams (Tryout)

New this year, we will be having a tryout for players interested in making our U10 Royal and Orange Teams. These teams will practice weekly and play in competitive tournaments. These teams will practice and compete from November- April.  The U10 Royal & Orange teams are geared towards experienced players (church/school team experience or have participated in previous 10s programs). Please visit our tryout link to register for the tryout that will be held at the same time as our U11-U14 grade school teams.

STL Coed Tots/6s/8s Program (2019-2020 Season)

The Tots/6s/8s PROGRAM size is limited to 20 athletes and will focus on establishing proper technique for teaching offensive/defensive skills, as well as teaching proper footwork and movement.  The use of lower nets and smaller courts are used to maximize skill sessions that include passing, serving, setting, attacking, tracking the ball, etc.  As we have done with all of our age groups, we have created a plan and established goals for the 8s age group to have a smooth transition into our 10's program.
