Lanier Little League (L3)

Lanier Little League (L3) is a recreational volleyball program run by Lanier Volleyball Club in conjunction with Lakewood Baptist Church Recreation Ministry. 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 grouped by age where they will train and play with and among their same/similar age peers. L3 athletes practice twice a week and also play in-house matches once per week.

Program Philosophy

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.
