Dig It! is designed to be fun for everyone, and a prior knowledge of volleyball is not required.
One-hour practices and games take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. The first four practices feature a group clinic in which new players learn volleyball basics, such as serving, passing, setting, spiking, rotation and rules of the game. Participants are split into three groups: third- and fourth-graders; fifth- and sixth-graders; and seventh- and eighth-graders.
Cost is $80 for Sparks residents and $96 for non-residents. The fee includes a uniform top, pictures and tournament. Financial assistance is available for youth who cannot otherwise afford to take part in the program.
Pre-registration is required online at www.sparksrec.com or by calling 353-2385. The Alf Sorensen Community Center is located at 1400 Baring Blvd. in Sparks.
