Smashball is our exciting new program for younger athletes. Smashball lets kids compete and play while focusing on the most fun part of the game – smashing the ball! Taking part in Smashball programs let athletes progress through a number of levels that incorporate other volleyball skills as the game becomes faster and more competitive. By teaching through game-play, Smashball develops athletes physical-literacy and games-literacy for volleyball. Smashball is fast-paced, engaging, and a lot of fun!

The Ontario Volleyball Association has produced a video outlining the different levels of Smashball. Watch it on YouTube here.
