POSITION SPECIFIC PRACTICES
Position Specific Practice is a concept that we have implemented on & off for several years after the requests of parents/players to train more consistently throughout the season than what sporadic clinics could offer with a focus on a specific skill set.
*NEW* home of Birmingham Volleyball Club
101 Cahaba Valley Pkwy W, Pelham, AL 35124
(formerly Pump It Up, next to Walmart in Pelham)
Please read thoroughly. If you have questions: Lacy@BirminghamVolleyball.com or 205-358-2065 (text)
For ages 10-18 years old (cannot be on a school team)
*See age description chart below to select accurate age group*
This is for all skill levels. Players will practice three times a month, with a focus on a different skill each day.
Each skill will cover all parts of the game that Hitters, Setters, & Defenders must know. For example, Hitters will not only learn hitting technique, but also defense from their position, blocking, serving, out of system play, etc.
The same goes for Setters and Defenders. We try to make a complete player by teaching them all parts of their game, not just their main role on the court. There is little match play at Position Specific Practices. This clinic is to solely help players work on specific positions, as individuals.
You do not have to play that position to attend the practice--these are monthly registrations so you get all 3 positions each month! We encourage our players to become well rounded individuals by attending all sessions! This is especially true for younger/new to volleyball players.
We will combine age groups as necessary after registration. Our goal is to have 2 groups: 8-14 year olds and 15-18 year olds. Advanced players may be asked to join the older group. New to volleyball players may be asked to join the younger group. These are coaching decisions, not parent requests, so please sign up for & attend your appropriate age group session. We will let you know if a move is needed.
There is NO TRYOUT required. Simply sign up & pay!
BVC is not responsible for lost volleyballs. We provide them for warm up & competition so we suggest that you do not bring your own. Kneepads are recommended. We suggest that players wear their hair up so it doesn't get in the way. Athletic shoes (NOT Keds/Converse/SlipOns) are required but they do not have to be volleyball specific. Athletic shorts/spandex & t-shirt are ideal. Players must wear a mask into the gym but allowed to remove it during practice. Practices are closed to spectators. Additional COVID guidelines will be emailed to you the week prior to the first session.
Practices are 3 Saturdays each month
