Welcome to the Deep Dish Crystal Palace Juniors club!
We’re an exciting, inclusive volleyball club for juniors aged 5-16. Make friends, have fun and learn to play volleyball all-year round! Our sessions are open to everyone, with no prior experience needed. Our fantastic coaching team includes international players and coaches that have a vast amount of experience in indoor and beach volleyball.
We believe in making full use of the facilities available to us at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, providing development in the beach and indoor volleyball games and continuity throughout the year. Learn to play beach volleyball in a facility that regularly hosts international athletes. As the temperatures drop, we’ll move indoors to continue the volleyball development of our players.
Each season, we will provide competitive opportunities to look forward to in both, including internal friendlies and external opportunities such as UK Beach Tour Juniors tournaments.
Beach Season: April-October
Indoor Season: November-March
ALL YEAR ROUND!
Our under 10’s focus on fun and the development of positive relationships with physical activity, as well as key skills and movement patterns.
We ensure that all juniors are taught the fundamentals of volleyball whilst having a great time doing it. Catching & throwing will be a key part in the development of specific volleyball skills whilst getting comfortable moving around in the sand.
Our under 16’s focus on breaking down the game of volleyball, learning the key skills and techniques to play and enjoy the sport. Our programme has been developed by England coaches and players, prioritising gameplay applications of new skills.
We know that our juniors will attend sessions for different reasons, and are proud to cater for different levels of experience and ambition.
