The Nest is an 8-week Recreational Volleyball Development Programme offered in the Fall and Winter and is aimed at exposing youth ages 9 – 16 to skills relevant to Volleyball Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development Pathway.
The Nest is designed to work independently or as apart of a continuum of hummingbird’s pathway; A follow up to our Bee Hummingbirds program, The Nest is a place for all folks with varying ambitions in their volleyball participation.
Whether to simply be active, prepare for higher-level competition or just to have a safe healthy environment to have fun with friends, The Nest teaches a combination of skills through drills and gameplay so folks are able to achieve their individual goals in a relaxed and safe environment. It’s called the nest because we want to ensure that folk’s growth is enabled in a safe space. Coaches meet players where they are at and the athlete takes flight based on their own readiness.
The Nest is a part of Hummingbird’s Coaching Development Pathway. Each group is supported by multiple coaches creating a dynamic learning and development environment.
The Nest is not a house league and limits participant numbers so folks can truly grow.
There are three age groups, aligning to the Long Term Athlete Development Pathway.
