Junior Thunder: Program Overview

What: The Junior Thunder (JT) Program is a non-competitive volleyball training program for young girls who have little or no playing experience. Coaches will teach fundamental skills, basic rules, and team concepts, through weekly practices and possible scrimmages, but no formal tournaments.  The Junior Thunder Program was created to help prepare girls for playing on a club or school team in the future and foster their enjoyment of the sport.

Who: For girls 10-12 years old.  Space is limited, so participation in the first session will be on a first-come, first-serve basis; to sign up, see details below.  The JT Program will be run by NET coaches.  Parents of JTs who have playing or coaching experience are encouraged to volunteer to help out. Players who try out for our Under 13s team, but are not selected, are encouraged to sign up for JTs!

When and Where: The Junior Thunder program will be held on Sunday late mornings or early afternoons at Albany Leadership Charter High School for Girls. Exact practice times are still to be determined.

There will be two consecutive 5 week sessions this season. The first session will run from early January to early February and will provide instruction on basic volleyball skills. The second session will run from late February to late March and will be for players in the first session who seem ready for more advanced team play.

Approximate Cost: $100 (includes a NET t-shirt) per session.
