Begin a running schedule, if you do not have one already. Training is not just for the off-season.
2 key exercises to do are running at least 8 – 10 miles a week and getting involved in a jumping program or plyometrics.
The more you play the better, but do not do more than your body is capable of handling. Cross-train when time permits. Getting involved in other sports is good because it will help you develop muscles that you may not use during the volleyball season.
all that you are right about, but if we are talking about kids age 8-13 years. it is not important that their shape is good.
you will focus more on developing a better sense of coordination, and practicing technique. and most important make them having fun so they related volleyball with having a good time.
