Lake Nona Mini Club Information


Mini Club is Top Select’s fall training program dedicated to our younger athletes.  Mini Club training focuses on the fundamentals of volleyball, training for the all-around player and overall team concepts.  Our program is designed to train players of all levels. We work with beginner and intermediate players to create a strong understanding of volleyball fundamentals as well as improve and develop more advanced athletes.  

Our Mini Club training has proven its success and is the foundation of our Academy:

  • Placed 1st in qualifiers
  • Placed top three in almost every qualifier
  • Placed top 2 in almost every state tournament.

These are just a few reasons why Mini Club plays a huge role in the continuous development of our athletes.

Our Mini Club teams are created considering both the age and skill level of each athlete. The teams play competitive, local, volleyball clubs and experience tournament-like competition. The goal for these players is to put them on the correct path to play at a higher, more competitive level during their school and regular club season. We love this part of our season because it lets us grow together as a program and reinforces our academy culture.
