Boys Volleyball

Why play boys volleyball? 

Boys volleyball is one of the oldest, yet fastest growing, sports in the country and one of the world’s most popular sports.
Here’s why:
FAST PACED & HIGH-FLYING: Men’s volleyball is played above the net and is considerably faster than the girl’s game. Take the best parts of basketball and tennis and mix-in the merciless slamming of a white ball into the floor, and you have volleyball.


FUN: There’s a reason people play volleyball at parties and get-togethers. When was the last time you saw wrestling or lacrosse played at a backyard BBQ?


GREAT CROSS-TRAINING: Football, basketball, tennis, and soccer players easily transition to the sport and find that it enhances skills and muscle group for these sports. No sport does a better job of training jump mechanics than volleyball. NBA players including Wilt ChamberlainKevin LoveChase BudingerAdam Keefe, and Jud Buechleragree.


LIFELONG SPORT: To illustrate, at U.S. Nationals, there’s a division for teams with players ages 70 & up. In 2013, nearly 100 male players showed up with their teams to compete in this division…


SAFE: While volleyball has its fair share of minor injuries (e.g., sprains, strains, and scrapes), volleyball has one of the lowest injury rates of any sport and ants near the bottom for concussions (well below soccer, lacrosse, ice hockey, wrestling, baseball, and football).
POST-HIGH SCHOOL PLAYING OPPORTUNITIES: From college leagues (NCAA and club), professional leagues, outdoor tournaments (for cash and recreation), and recreational adult leagues, volleyball has more opportunities and ways to play from high school and beyond than nearly any other sport.
