Essentials for Schools

SpikeZone logoSpikezone is a modified version of volleyball designed for both primary and secondary school students. Spikezone can be modified to suit any age, skill level and group size to ensure players have a fun experience while learning the game. 

PRIMARY SCHOOL PROGRAM

Spikezone can be modified to suit various ages, skill level and group size to ensure players have a fun experience while learning the game. 

The modifications include:

  • a smaller sized court (13 metres by 6.5 metres)
  • a lower net height
  • a softer and lighter ball
  • less players on the court
  • slight changes to the rules

Like volleyball, Spikezone is about getting the ball over the net in three hits or less and winning the rally because the ball hits the ground in the opposition’s court, the opposition fails to return the ball over the net in three hits or the opposition hits the ball out of court.

SECONDARY SCHOOL PROGRAM

The Spikezone School Volley program targets year 7 and 8 students. The aim of the program is to provide an opportunity for all participants to experience and enjoy the game of volleyball, whilst offering a targeted approach for women and girls. 

We aim to connect female participants with local female volleyball coaches as an engaging and innovative approach to address physical inactivity among young women and girls.

This approach will be delivered through five focus points:
  • Participation opportunities, not competitive opportunities - with a female focus to have a positive and enjoyable experience (students, teacher and coaches)
  • Game Sense approach to session delivery to keep girls engaged
  • Physically active – lifestyle fitness (play at your own pace)
  • Fun and engaging
  • Q & As
