'Muth Volley Academies scheduled for January

  The Frankenmuth varsity volleyball program will conduct a pair of ‘Muth Volley Academies for girls in grades three through six.

  The Winter Academy will take place eight consecutive Thursdays, January 4 through February 22, at List Elementary School. Grades 3-4 will receive instruction from 3:25-4:45pm and grades 5-6 from 5-6:30pm.

  Frankenmuth High School varsity Head Coach and MVBA Director Shelly Conrad is the program director and lead coach, with Lady Eagle volleyball players as student assistant coaches.

  The Spring Academy will take place in April and May.

  This year, players will be assigned a coach and a team that they will train and compete with throughout the eight weeks. During the training portion of the sessions, focus will be placed on technique to help develop muscle memory for a variety of skills. Fifth and sixth grade players will learn more advanced drills, strategies and team systems to prepare them for middle school volleyball.

  The latter half of both age group sessions will be dedicated to fun, competitive matches where players are able to practice their learned skills through active team play which will teach in-game communication skills and teamwork.

  To register, email Frankenmuth Community Education Director Bonnie VanVoorhees at commedu@frankenmuth.k12mi.us.
