Congratulations to Sports Authority Move It Challenge Semi-Finalist Sierra B. from Westminster, MD

April 6, 2011

Sierra invented the VB Buddy.

This device is designed to help volleyball players bump, volley, or spike the ball. It is a small tube with a spring and platform at the bottom of it. The spring releases the ball shooting it in the air at a height and angle the player chooses. The spring can be adjusted by a simple crank on the outside of the tube. The tighter the resistance the higher the ball goes.

In addition, at the semi final event, Sierra presented a whole suite of volleyball training devices.

“Volleyball is the 2nd most popular sport in the world,” said 7th grader Sierra. “My invention is a collection of items that individuals can use to help teach and perfect their skills no matter what skill level.”
