Grassroots

Grass Roots is a developmental level of training for ages 5 through 12.   Many of our region clubs have started either a volleytots or grassroots program.

 

To host a Grassroot Event you must have two courts - one net that will play at 7 feet for the 10-11-12’s and one net that will play at 6 foot 6 inches for the 8-9’s.  Remember in grassroot play the is no set service line. Place player where they can serve over and move them back each time they are successful. We want rally opportunities to determine the outcome of the point. The region will assign two officials per event to call and conduct a brief grassroot official’s clinic at each event.
