Middle School Volleyball



The purpose of the WPMS Volleyball Program is to teach basic skills, teamwork, and an understanding of the game of volleyball. The ultimate purpose is to prepare players to be able to successfully compete at the Varsity level as a high school student. As coaches, we strive to make the learning process fun, yet productive.
