Junior Sports Leagues Upper Hutt
Junior Sports Leagues are a great community service offered by the YMCA for young people in Upper Hutt. They have proved very popular in the past and we are proud to bring them to your area in 2020 as they offer numerous benefits including keeping fit, improving coordination, developing skills, building teamwork and developing a healthy competitive spirit all in a fun environment.
At YMCA we offer a variety of sports that your child’s school can be involved in each term. Junior Leagues will be based at YMCA Upper Hutt on Somme Road on Monday evenings and run throughout the year.
These leagues offer the perfect opportunity to challenge your kids and students and keep up their fitness in a fun and social environment.
We would like to see as many schools participating as possible, however, a degree of first come first served will need to apply as numbers are limited.
Term 2 2020 we are introducing Volleyball! In partnership with Capital City Volleyball we are introducing a modified game of Volleyball that will suit children of all abilities. The games is played on a Badminton sized court with a net height of around 2 meters. The game is played 4 vs 4 players and the subs rotate on and off the court so everyone gets to play in all positions.
Term 2 Volleyball:
We’ll start all grades with an elimination style of Volleyball, where teams catch and throw the ball over the net if the ball hits the ground a player is eliminated from the court. Play counties until a team have eliminated all the opponents then they are awarded a point.
We want tamariki to be successful and enjoy the sport they play, as the tamariki improve theirs skills we’ll add new rules and included set and spikes where we see to ability.
The games will be played 4 vs 4 players on the court but you can have a team of 10 players. Before each match commences there will be a skill session held by the referee, then children will be able to put into practice their new learnt skill as they play their game.
