One of the teachers at Blake's school offered a little volleyball after school for the Grade 5 and 6 classes. Blake was excited to join. Because of Meet the Teacher night and an eye appointment, Blake only had one practice.
They had a little mini tournament they attended. He did very well for just that one practice. Most serves went over. He was a little hesitant to go after the ball and had one teammate that would jump in front of everything. But he got more into it by the end.
It was a very low key tournament. Kids played for 15 mins then switched. There was no scores kept. Some rules seemed like very broad guidelines, but they had a great time.
The kids enjoyed it so much that the teacher has decided to continue with it for the next few months. Which is great. Blake is getting more and more practice and getting really excited for when he can play.
This kinda looks like perhaps the ball did not go where it should have. :)
