Year-round volleyball programs. All levels and ages 8-18 welcome. Mostly girls, but boys are welcome!
LTRC Volleyball is a wonderful introduction to the game of volleyball. Kids will make friends, develop confidence, get some exercise and learn the basics of the game. Level of play ranges, but generally beginners – intermediate. Volleyball is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the area! Join the fun.

Top Ten Things We Love about Volleyball:
- Team Sport – Make awesome friends and learn to work together!
- Non-Contact – A NET is between you and the opponent = fewer injuries & fights!
- No long distance running – Enough said.
- Lifetime sport – Family reunions, beach, parks, gyms, backyard!
- Exciting! – Fast paced, lots of points, lots of whistling.
- 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.
- Easy to practice independently – Just need a ball…a wall….and/or a friend!
- Builds communication – “I GOT IT!” “MINE!” “HELP!” – Talking to your team is a MUST in the sport.
- Valuable life-lessons – Perseverance, Selflessness, Staying positive, Overcoming failures, Sportsmanship, Goal oriented.
- 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…and as of 2022, a preschool teacher! 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!
