Lanier Little League (L3) is a recreational volleyball program run by Lanier Volleyball Club in conjunction with local parks and recreational departments. Focus is on instruction and development of the fundamentals of volleyball: passing, setting, blocking, hitting, serving, and defense, as well as team concepts through instruction and game play. Players are drafted onto teams where they will train and play with and among their same/similar age peers. L3 athletes practice once a week and also play in-house matches once per week.
All programs within Lanier Volleyball Club are run in accordance to our mission to provide athletes in the North Georgia area with the highest level of technical, tactical and physical training available. The model used for the L3 program is a cutting edge program created around well researched motor learning principles* and player development/advancement science. This model allows for less time waiting in line, more touches on the ball, faster player development and higher skill retention rates.
Change for Fall 2017: Players will be drafted onto 1 team based upon an evaluation on Tuesday, 10/10. During practices, teams will practice skills in both a large group and team setting. During matches, players will play with their team every week as well as play in small sided games where an official score is kept and results tracked.
Practices: Mondays (1 hour duration)
Matches: Saturdays (1-2 hours duration)

The international training model used to teach these young athletes above are the same principles we are using! (FIVB Cool Volley)
training only with SMALL SIDED games, and building SLOWLY towards bigger games before reaching 6 v 6.
We use a combination of the international FIVB model and USAV’s MiniVolley
