In addition to being a fast-paced and exciting game, volleyball fosters strong team bonding on and off the court. This league focuses on sharpening skills and learning the rules all in a fun, non-competitive environment. 

YMCA youth sports encourage and promote healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others. Parents are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches—as well as being their kid’s greatest fan.

Youth volleyball leagues are typically offered during the spring and fall seasons.
