Elementary Program

The Elementary Program is an initiative created by Volleyball Canada to aid elementary school teachers in introducing volleyball to their students.


Volleyball has traditionally been viewed as a difficult sport to introduce to young children, but it doesn't have to be. With the simple modifications that Elementary Program offers, teachers can easily provide their children with a fun and rewarding volleyball experience.  Best of all you don't need to be a volleyball expert to get started!

What is the Elementary Program?

The Elementary Program is a National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) online course designed for Elementary School Teachers delivering physical education curriculum for grades 1-6. The course is also beneficial for community centres and clubs looking for a program that develops physical literacy through volleyball.
