YMCA Jr. Lopers Volleyball

Jr. Loper Volleyball program focuses on teaching fundamentals, sportsmanship and teamwork through games and practices. We follow an “everyone plays” motto which means that during the season every player receives equal practice time and plays at least half of every game. As part of a team, everyone contributes to the team’s success. We believe that kids who have fun playing sports build a lifetime love of healthy competition, and develop healthy habits; and the best way to keep it enjoyable is to keep everyone involved. Teams will be formed by based on grade & school attended.
