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 Middle School League program seeks to send equipped athletes to the Hall County High School and other local Volleyball Programs by increasing volleyball skill and understanding.  We use a matched skill format allowing the growth and challenge of all levels of play within the program.  Practice and training is structured into 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.
