The Mini Spikers Programme is an introductory Volleyball Programme targeting 6 to 9-year-old children. The overall aim of the programme is to develop children’s Fundamental Movement Skills through a variety of FUN activities and provide an age appropriate FUN introduction to the game of Volleyball. The Mini Spikers game is a simple adapted game that is presented and taught through three stages (Mini Stars, Super Stars and Mega Stars) preparing players to progress onto playing SpikeBall and Volleyball. 
We are delighted to announce that this year we will run our first ever Mini Spikers Tournament. The deadline for team entries is April 12th with the competition taking place in May 2019. Any school that affiliates with Volleyball Ireland will receive downloadable PDF Mini Spikers workbook which include lesson plans and lots of FUN games.

2018 Star Programme – TY Volley 
After the hugely successful Women in Sport TY programme, we are introducing TY Volley.
Ty Volley is a Transition Year Volleyball programme for girls and boys (minimum of 12 per group).
The students are trained up as volleyball coaches.

They deliver a 6-week introduction to mini volleyball programme to 1st or 2nd year students in their school.
The TY leaders will run a blitz in their school for all the students that they have coached. The TY leaders can then enter teams into the TY Volley national blitz which will run between April and May 2019 (depending on the number of team entries).
