Ignites Developmental Program

Welcome to our Crossfire VBC IGNITES developmental youth program! 

Ignites is a 6-week, practice-only program on Sundays, to learn competitive volleyball skills.  This program is for 3rd to 7th grade players that are looking to improve volleyball skills and learn about playing competitively. Players will be divided into two groups dependent on age and volleyball experience.

Individual volleyball skills that are introduced and guided, include:

  • serving, overhand
  • passing
  • setting
  • spiking
  • team court play

We hope your child learns these volleyball skills plus a sense of teamwork.

Session III: Jan-Feb, final dates are pending
