Do you dig it?

Like basketball, volleyball was invented at a YMCA to give members and participants an active game to play indoors. And did it ever catch on! Now volleyball is one of the most popular games at outdoor barbecues, on the beach, in high school and collegiate athletics, and even at the Olympics. Your child can get their start in volleyball at the Y!

Y 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.

Families are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches—as well as being their kid’s greatest fan.
