SPORTIME is proud to offer a high-level JUNIOR VOLLEYBALL CLUB (VBC) for boys and girls, ages 7-18. The SPORTIME VBC provides young athletes with expert training, professional instructors and state-of-the-art facilities. Our instructional clinics, developmental training and competitive travel teams offer players of all levels the opportunity to learn and compete under the supervision of our expert coaches.
Our unique training methods allow players to challenge each other while learning from our entire team of coaches. Club players who commit their time and efforts to team practices and competitions will improve their skills and make valuable contributions to their respective teams. SPORTIME is fully committed to providing young athletes with a fun, positive volleyball experience.
Please note: Players must register with GEVA prior to tryouts in order to participate. To register, visit the GEVA WEBSITE.
SPORTIME VBC provides expert private instruction for boys and
girls who are interested in receiving special one on one attention. Our
coaches evaluate the player's level and discuss what areas of the
game he or she would like to focus on. He or she then creates an
individualized lesson plan to address those goals. Private Instruction
is an excellent way to focus on specific skills, gain valuable feedback
and receive a high number of skill repetitions.
For private lesson fees or to schedule a private training session with one of our coaches, please contact Jose Brito at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 516-731-4432.

JMTA coaches attend certain USTA and ITF tournaments to support JMTA juniors. Individual coaching at tournaments is available to JMTA students for an additional cost. Challenge matches, invitational training camps and other special trips are offered throughout the year.
