    Triple Ball now in the Yukon!

    Triple Ball arrives in the Yukon!

    Yukon Elementary Volleyball Championships concluded this past weekend with Triple Ball rules. I have to say it was a huge success, we converted many of the nay sayers at the end of the day. The level of play was higher than I have ever seen it, especially on the girl's side.  Next step is to get the game in to the high schools for grades 8 and 9 next year. Here is one comment I have received.  

    "I have to eat my words in regards to Triple Ball. I still love the classic game but I have admit the game works for the elementary setting. I look forward to seeing it at the gr 8 level."

    Thanks for all your work at Volleyball Canada. Consider this an open invitation to come for a visit to the Yukon, work shops, clinics, you name it we'll make it work.

    Triple Ball is a progression of Age Appropriate Games in the Volleyball Canada Development Model.  The game follows a sequence of three rallies (service, free ball 1, and free ball 2). The service alternates between teams after each three-ball sequence. After each rally is complete, the ball must quickly be removed from the court so the next sequence can be started.
