Developmental Volleyball League

Looking to develop your volleyball skills in a fun and encouraging environment? Learn the basic rules and skill work in the game of volleyball at the Harrisburg Area YMCA in our Developmental Volleyball program!

Our programs are co-ed, and ages will vary depending on the branch program you select. Participating youth will practice a variety of volleyball drills and play games. The program is a great opportunity to introduce the sport of volleyball to youth who are interested in playing.

Skills Developed:

Skills including serving, forearm passing, setting, hitting and blocking will be practiced.  Skill work, proper mechanics, and fundamentals are emphasized to give the players a solid foundation of the sport. Position work will also be addressed, as well as the understanding of game-play.

Developmental Volleyball is currently provided at our West Shore YMCA branch and Northern York Location. For more information about the programs available, please click on the list below.
