GRiNDERS PLUS +
Grinders Plus+ is a NEW and EXCITING program for those who have either achieved GOLD status in our GRiNDERS Camp or have 1 yr. of Competitive Club Experience and are looking to take their game to the top. Coaches have crafted intense and technical practice plans for athletes, with the primary focus on more advanced skills such as zone serving, jump serving while developing a higher level of court awareness along with strategic ball placement.
Players will test out to advance from one level to the next. One example of a metrics that will be used is a players ability to perform an overhand serve from the backline with the ball clearing the net to move on to the next level. This criteria and requirement will provide players with a roadmap of how to progress through the program and will give them tangible goals to accomplish for player advancement. Players will receive important education on aspects of the game such as being introduced and training using the rotation found at the Club and High School level. Athletes will learn and gain an understanding of some of the different rotations that exist, for example a 5-1 rotation vs. 6-2 rotation, to name just a few.
Proper terminology of the game will be reinforced and also be a focus of each series. For example using the term "Hit" and "Pass" vs. saying "Spike" and "Bump"

GRiNDERS PLUS + capped at 24 players
