Junior Training Program (JTP)

Our Junior Training Program (JTP) is a training development program designed for high school-aged boys and girls to learn and develop the skills and fundamental of volleyball. This program is great for players currently training in schools and looking for the extra trainings, or are simply new to the sport and looking for a club to learn the sport. Besides acquiring technical skills, our program also put a strong emphasis in the importance of teamwork for players to develop leadership and positive communication skills.

There are five levels in the program–Beginners, Development, Intermediate, Advanced and Elite. All newcomers to the program (including Dragons members who have not participated in JTP before) will be assessed at their first session and allocated to the suitable level/group. Trainings run during school terms, giving you the flexibility to sign up on a term-by-term basis. Registration is accepted anytime during week 1 to 8. This program is opened to Dragons members and also non-Dragons members.

This program also provides a pathway for players into the Dragons Junior Academy Program, club representation competitions such as Junior PVL and State Championships, and state and national programs.
