Top Ten Things We Love about Volleyball:

  1. Team Sport – Make awesome friends and learn to work together!
  2. Non-Contact – A NET is between you and the opponent = fewer injuries & fights!
  3. No long distance running – Enough said.
  4. Lifetime sport – Family reunions, beach, parks, gyms, backyard!
  5. Exciting! – Fast paced, lots of points, lots of whistling.
  6. A no “ball-hogs” sport – Equal opportunity! Players may only touch the ball 1 time in a row, and strive to have 3 different touches at every opportunity.
  7. Easy to practice independently – Just need a ball…a wall….and/or a friend!
  8. Builds communication – “I GOT IT!” “MINE!” “HELP!” – Talking to your team is a MUST in the sport.
  9. Valuable life-lessons – Perseverance, Selflessness, Staying positive, Overcoming failures, Sportsmanship, Goal oriented.
  10. Slapping hands – Arguably the highest frequency of high-fives & hand-slapping in any sport amongst team-mates! What’s not to love about that!?

 WHO IS COACH JEN: 

Hi!  I am a mom, a wife, a neighbor, a tennis player, an oboe player, a piano teacher, an accountant,a volleyball player and coach.  I grew up in West Philly, went to Davidson College in North Carolina, where I played D1 volleyball (setter), but was recruited for playing the oboe.  I believe sports should teach kids life-long skills of cooperation, staying positive, team-spirit and healthy exercise.  I believe every child should be given the opportunity to enjoy playing a team sport.  Thank you to the kids, parents and volunteers who have helped this program grow since 2013.  I am honored to be the coach and founder and look forward to many more years of BUMPING IT UP!
