From a young age, children need to learn how to give, take turns, and share. Y Volleyball helps young people to develop these important skills while enhancing their confidence as they grow as individual players and as part of a team.

 Youth Volleyball

Through our program, middle schoolers and teens learn volleyball fundamentals and improve strength, accuracy, and endurance in this technique heavy sport. Players will practice serving, passing, setting, and hitting, as well as concepts of offense, defense, cooperation, and teamwork. The concept of good sportsmanship is woven into the fabric of all that we do.

Volleyball was invented at the YMCA in 1895 and unveiled at a physical director’s conference at what is now Springfield College. We continue the tradition of this great sport and offer participants the chance to sharpen their skills and have fun.


In Y sports, every child makes the team and plays at least half of every game. Teams will engage in competitive games officiated by Y referees.
