Mini Club Boston

About Mini Club

Mini Club is a grass roots activity program for young girl & boy athletes from grades K-9. This program is perfect for total beginners looking to try out the game of volleyball to players with moderate volleyball experience.

Our professional coaches come prepared, with enthusiasm and positive energy each practice. We teach the skills of volleyball just as they are taught by our US National Volleyball program. In addition to fundamental skills, players will learn how the game is played and have plenty of opportunities to compete in small, fast-paced games. We're focused on giving your younger athlete a proper start to their volleyball career!

What is Mini Club Indoors in Wellesley?

Our flagship Mini Club Youth programs for grades K-9, held at our 3-court facility in Boston Sports Club of Wellesley. Players can register for one or more weekday sessions where we learn skills and practice drills. Everyone grades 3-9 plays on Saturdays, joining a team where you'll fit in and make friends right away. You will love the positive, encouraging coaching and fast paced, fun practices and games!  

Mini Club is a fantastic experience for players brand new to volleyball and players who have been playing for years. 

What is Mini Club Sand in Natick?

This year we're expanding to offer a second location for our Mini Club program at the indoor Beach House facility in Natick. The Beach house is a state-of-the-art, multi-million dollar facility built from scratch for beach volleyball. The program is similar to the   'indoor' Mini Club in Wellesley (described above), but we'll be playing on the premier sand courts at Beach House instead of the traditional hardcourt. Players can register for Mondays + Wednesday or Tuesdays + Thursdays (or both!). We're offering four premiere beach courts and a parents viewing balcony!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“I met Scott recently, when my three children attended the grass clinic at Oak Hill. He is an excellent communicator and organiser and is incredibly encouraging with the athletes. Lucas I have known for a few years both as the Varsity coach for my older children and SMASH U12s coach for my youngest daughter. Lucas is more than an excellent coach; he takes the time to get to know each athlete and provides support specific to their needs. Ruby has thrived from her opportunity to start playing at 9 years old, developing a strong skill set and growing into a driven athlete. For me, the most important part is that my children have learned the life skill of being part of a team through working with Lucas.”
