Driven Mini Club 2020

Driven Mini Club 2020!

We believe that mini club is a time for any player, regardless of experience level, to learn and grow in the sport. We will have a Placement Day where players will be placed on a team based on age and experience level. The goal in mini club is to learn the sport/grow in skill in a more relaxed environment for a shorter season than traditional club season.

*Due to COVID-19, we will not enter any tournaments. Instead, we will have scrimmage Fridays and/or Saturdays, where we will scrimmage each other and invite another local club to scrimmage. This will be similar to Driven Scrimmage Day last mini club season, but in a smaller setting with less people.  

Mini Club Ages:

We will have teams for ages 7-15 with players being grouped by age and ability level. The focus for our younger mini club teams is to create a foundation of basic volleyball skills while learning the game in a fun and healthy environment. For our older mini club teams, we will focus on continuing training and developing skills to enhance their ability on the court, as well as master the fundamentals of volleyball to supplement middle school seasons and prepare for club season.
