Students from the Australian Islamic College in Thornlie, WA are hooked on volleyball following the success of their four week Sporting Schools program.
Learning how to dig, set, spike and serve is all part of the fun for the group of 40 students in Years 4-6 that recently took part in the Spikezone volleyball sessions with Volleyball WA.
Teachers at the school believe they have discovered many hidden talents amongst the students, with the school now eager to organise a formal after-school program for students in Term 3.
Their coach, Carly Walters, was very impressed with the kids and the way they engaged with the program.
“This is probably one of the best clinics I have ever run. The kids are so enthusiastic and eager to learn!” Carly said.
Working alongside community volunteers Zahra and Sabremah, Carly delivered a fun, dynamic and engaging clinic that thoroughly impressed the school and has left a lasting impact.
“The kids absolutely love this clinic! Volleyball is the highlight of their week,” Heba, a teacher at the Australian Islamic College said.
Sporting Schools is a $160 million Australian Government initiative to get more children playing more sport, before, during and after school. Want to run a Spikezone volleyball program at your school? Check out all the details on the Volleyball Australia page.
