Kewaunee's Volley Tots program is experiencing a boost in attendance. Last year, 32 girls were enrolled. The 2019 class was over 50 by the middle of last week, before any same-day registrations occurred at the first session on Saturday. Volley Tots is a five-week program that teaches fundamentals of the game to first through sixth graders in Kewaunee. Organizer Greta Bloniarz says it is important to keep young girls interested in the game at an age where playing opportunities can be hard to come by.
Volley Tots is a feeder program for junior volleyball and eventually high school teams in the county. The increased enrollment should produce a trickle-down effect for years to come.
