Two VolleyKids watch an older team practice

It is the goal of Epic United’s youth programs to help spread the love of volleyball throughout our community. All of our youth programs are designed to shrink the game of volleyball to the child's size, using lighter balls, lower nets, and smaller courts.

This allows boys and girls to learn proper technique and love the game without getting frustrated. Youngsters develop athletic skills through volleyball that will enhance their ability to play all sports.

In addition to volleyball fundamentals such as serving, passing, setting, hitting & rules of the game, participants will improve hand-eye coordination, balance, body awareness, footwork, agility, spatial awareness and communication with an emphasis on "FUN"damentals and TEAMWORK.

Many youth program alumni have moved on to very successful careers with Epic United Volleyball and into their collegiate programs.

The classes are currently offered in 3 areas:  Our Eastern sessions will take place in Merrillville and Hobart, our Western sessions will take place in Lansing, IL and Munster. We are also looking to do some southern sessions in Crown Point or Lowell, as well as some Illinois sessions at Marian Catholic HS.
