Reno/Sparks volleyball club looking to better Nevada youth



A Reno/Sparks volleyball program is taking the game to the next level, and not just on the court. Northern Nevada Juniors Volleyball Club is now offering evening and weekend volleyball programs for girls between the ages of 4 and 18 who would like to learn more about volleyball and also build important skills to use off the court.

Established as a small traveling club in 2007, Northern Nevada Juniors has worked hard to shape young girls as good players and more importantly, good people. Now in its fifth year of operation, NNJ is expanding to offer year-round programs for girls looking for all levels of instruction in a safe and fun environment.

NNJ now offers its Volleyball Skills Clinics and Camps along with free educational seminars from groups like Center for Hope of the Sierras and Pendola Training to educate girls on eating disorders and teach them more about the importance of proper nutrition. Camps and Clinics focus on the fundamentals of the game, including progressive and repetition-based training and injury prevention techniques. Emphasis is also put on confidence and self-esteem building, as well as teaching girls about determination, dedication, effective communication and other social skills.

“We’re trying to take the volleyball experience to the next level in Northern Nevada,” says Jason Sterrett, NNJ Club Director. “Our coaches are all dedicated to developing each player as a whole, not just teaching them volleyball skills.”

Registration for Fall Skills Clinics is now open, get involved in the NNJ movement today!
