In Term 2 Volleyball WA ran Spikezone Volleyball sessions over a period of four weeks with the Year 4’s, 5’s, and 6’s at the Australian Islamic College in Thornlie, Western Australia. Each session had a great turnout of approximately 40 students. The students have learnt to dig, set, spike and serve, combining all their new skills to play a fun game of volleyball. The kids are now hooked on volleyball and the teacher has discovered lots of natural talent that the kids have for this sport.
The school has now expressed a strong interest in organising a formal afterschool Spikezone Program for the primary school kids in Term 3. Volleyball Coach Carly Walters was very impressed with the kids and exclaimed, “This is probably one of the best clinics I have ever run. The kids are so eager to learn and enthusiastic!” Working alongside community volunteers Zahra and Sabremah, Carly delivered a fun, dynamic and engaging clinic. Volleyball WA spoke to the sports teacher Heba who said “the kids absolutely love this clinic! Volleyball is the highlight of their week!”
The Sporting Schools Program supports Volleyball WA’s mission to promote healthy lifestyles through volleyball, providing safe opportunities for fun exercise for every level, age, gender and background. The program assists Volleyball WA efforts to engage students and teachers from diverse backgrounds in Western Australia.
