Wichita Sports Forum is the area’s premiere volleyball venue. Not only does The Forum have 10 hardwood courts, but we are also home to 4 sand volleyball courts. The sand courts are made up of the finest sand on earth and installed by the provider of the last 4 Olympics and FIVB Beach Tour. The hardwood courts can be converted into 18 practice courts for skills training, lessons and practices. Fans can cheer from court-side bleachers or either of our two mezzanines, which include flat screen TVs and lounge areas.
The courts are used for everything from practice and conditioning to national level showcases and tournaments. Camps are held throughout the year featuring the area’s best coaches. Private and small group training is available.
Hardwood or sand volleyball court rental rates:
5 or fewer people – $10/person per hour
Teams or groups of 6 or more – $75/court per hour
*The courts can also be rented for sports other than volleyball or for special events. Contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Spring Break Skill Development Clinic Series
Wichita Sports Forum is home to numerous clinics and workshops throughout the year for players of all ages and skill levels. The workshops range from position clinics to individual skills to all skills development.
Wichita Sports Forum is partnering with the Wichita State University volleyball coaching staff to offer multiple day skill clinics for volleyball players that will be home for Spring Break! These clinics will focus on individual skill development through drills and repetition.
- Set & Serve Academy will focus on proper technique for float and jump float (2 and 1 leg takeoff), and jump top-spin. Setting will focus on footwork patterns on and off the net, proper hand position, wrist speed and 2nd and 3rd tempo sets that will be used during competition.
- Speed Up is a program designed to help volleyball players improve their lateral movement speed (side to side movement) and straight speed. This program focuses on footwork and helping players improve coordination and body control that translates to the volleyball court. As the game develops further, the speed of play also increases. This program is designed to help allow athletes to accelerate more quickly on the court and maintain higher speed in the game for longer periods of time. The overarching goal of the program is to push athletes past their perceived limitations, allowing them to speed up their own game.
- 1st Contact Academy is the most serious camp available for developing 1st contact skills (passing, digging, serving). An extensive amount of time will be spent on both technical training and repetitive work. We will focus on movement, all defensive positions on the court, base to defense, digging outside the midline and much more.
- Attack is a clinic focusing on attacking and passing skills. This is an excellent workshop for players to develop overall attacking fundamentals. We will focus on proper technique for arm-swing, 2-3-4 step approach for attacking all sets along the net and backrow attacking options.
Each session will be 2 hours. The schedule is as follows:
9:00am-11:00am – Attack Clinic
11:00am-1:00pm – Set & Serve Academy
1:00pm-3:00pm – 1st Contact Academy
3:00pm-5:00pm – Speed Up Program
