Ready. Set. Spike! Hit the net with the folks who invented the game - the Y. Our Youth Volleyball program emphasizes teaching the values of good sportsmanship, teamwork, goal setting and skill development in a fun, esteem-promoting atmosphere. Children will have the opportunity to learn the basic volleyball fundamentals such as underhand serving, setting, hitting and digging in a fun atmosphere.
Originally called mintonette, volleyball was actually created by the YMCA. The first game was played way back in 1896! An experimental game, mintonette was a variation of badminton with elements of basketball, handball and the German game of fistball. Now, 120 years later, we still use volleyball as a tool to develop each participant physically, mentally and spiritually, as is the philosophy of all YMCA youth sports programs.
Our youth volleyball program is a co-ed league.
