The Far Out Youth Academy is based upon a fundamental, motor skill development approach. Each session integrates basic motor skill movement and volleyball skills. The skills progression that is being taught will build upon itself as individuals progress through the academy. The youth academy is for grades K-6. We will have five sessions available during the 2018-2019 season. Participants can choose to do one session, a couple, or all five. Participants can begin with any session. All sessions are 6 weeks long.
