Looking to get your kids active and learning volleyball? Mini Club Youth Volleyball is a grass roots program for young girl & boy athletes from grades K-8. This program is perfect for total beginners looking to try out the game, to players with moderate volleyball experience. Mini Club includes a weekday practice focused mostly on skill development  for all ages and an additional Saturday focused mostly on game play for athletes in 3rd-8th grade. 

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 young athlete a proper start to their volleyball career.

Mini Club will be held indoors at the courts at Boston Sports Club in Wellesley.  Included in this session, each player will receive a Boston Area Youth Volleyball shirt. 


The World Health Organization recommends 60+ minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity daily!  You can help your child on the path to lifelong health by creating healthy habits now.


Our primary objective is to help your child to fall in love with the game of volleyball.  We know they will.  Our positive, enthusiastic coaches will create a culture your child will love!


We believe that safety is paramount.  Our expert coaches will keep your kids safe while learning the game we all love!  Click here to learn about our COVID protocol.

Quote from Scott: “YOU are the future of New England Volleyball! Partnering with Coach Lucas on this project is a dream come true and we can not wait to find and develop the next generation of volleyball athletes here in Greater Boston!”

Quote From Lucas: "The future of New England volleyball lies in our youth, our youngest players. There is nothing more exciting than helping a young person learn a new skill, do something new, make new friends, and fall in love with the game. And for many of these athletes there is nothing more fulfilling than trying really hard, expending a lot of energy, and leaving a session tired & happy. I'm thrilled to be partnering with Scott on this project to bring youth volleyball to more young players."
