the VolleydomeMini Dome Club (formerly Volleyball Academy)

Volleyball Academy, now Mini DC, was introduced by the Volleydome in the fall of 2004 and became an overnight success with its purpose of teaching kids the skills of the game in a not too competitive environment. Our motto from the beginning has been: Have Fun. Learn the Skills. Love the Game.

Mini DC is run in the Fall and the Spring, and is an excellent introductory program for young volleyball athletes aspiring to enter junior high school teams or eventually join team programs like Dome Club (Recreational) or Canuck Stuff Club (Competitive).

If you have already played the sport in school then you should probably look at our Dome Club program instead which has continuous start dates throughout the year. Tryouts for more competitive teams (like Canuck) begin in November. For those starting at the earliest ages we recommend several sessions to help build strength and confidence in skills.
