With everything from individual programs to team motivation sessions designed by experienced trainers, our trainers help craft tailored fitness journeys tailored precisely to you based on your schedule and goals.

Volleyball

Volleyball is a team sport involving six players on each side. The object of the game is to send the ball across the net in three hits or less so that your opponents cannot return it, beginning with the serve hit by one team over the net to another group; once received by them, their receiving team may win rallies by plugging it into their court – should this occur successfully, one point is awarded, and one position rotated clockwise on their roster.

Since it first debuted at Holyoke YMCA gymnasium in Holyoke, Massachusetts, in 1895, volleyball has come a long way. Today, it is one of the world’s premier sports, with over 220 national federations affiliates worldwide under its international governing body, FIVB, not to mention Olympic inclusion and growing youth support for this global pastime.

Volleyball offers many health advantages for its participants beyond being an enjoyable social activity. It boosts aerobic endurance – often known as cardiovascular fitness – while simultaneously increasing mental alertness due to the need for quick thinking and responding quickly in quickly changing situations. Plus, volleyball helps build balance and coordination skills!

Volleyball not only strengthens arms and legs, but it can also increase bone density – it is a fantastic exercise suitable for people of all ages! Furthermore, volleyball teaches participants about sportsmanship and respect, as the game should always be conducted in such a way as to treat both opponents and referees with due courtesy.

Volleyball players need to be adept at working effectively as part of a team and communicating effectively with their teammates while managing emotions well and maintaining positive attitudes toward others. Finally, volleyball provides an excellent opportunity to build self-confidence and leadership abilities while increasing participants’ responsibility levels.

Water Polo

Many people associate water polo with the Olympic Games, but for many players, it has become a lifetime sport. Water polo involves six swimmers and one goalkeeper playing together on a team to pass and shoot a ball into a net for points; the object is to score more than your opponents in this high-scoring game that requires teamwork and strength to succeed.

On a windy February evening at Ohlone College pool, Brenda Villa instructs 26 girls between 9-14 as they practice passing and shooting. As she walks around giving advice and motivational cues, she also issues frequent warnings and encouragements to her charges.

Villa knows her young charges need assistance: research shows that participation in organized sports improves grades, self-confidence, and engagement at school for kids from low-income families. But Villa also understands it can be challenging for poor children to gain entry due to cost; “If you’re poor kid, it doesn’t just work like that,” she explains.

At Belle Haven Water Polo Academy, she established a program offering scholarships and low registration fees for kids who otherwise could not afford participation. Funding sources include Beyond Barriers – a nonprofit charitable organization that covers most participant fees; Project 2020 for equipment and uniform purchases; the City of Menlo Park, which owns their pool; and a for-profit company that pays Villa’s coaching salary while leasing the facility.

Belle Haven is an ambitious undertaking, yet with the help of volunteers, it has already seen significant progress. Villa plans on expanding her program with academic support and nutrition/health education – but insurance red tape makes hiring staff difficult. Villa is frustrated that her lack of resources prevents this expansion from taking place faster; “if I had more money, I’d make it much bigger.” She rattles off a list of organizations she’d like to partner with to coordinate tutoring and water polo but remains undaunted by obstacles to progress.
