Volleyball is an Olympic team sport requiring high levels of aerobic endurance, power, flexibility, speed, and agility. 

The object of the game is to send the ball over the net so that the opposing team cannot return the ball or prevent it from hitting the ground in their court. 

Types of Volleyball...

Volleyball can be played indoors or outdoors.  It is a fun sport that can be played in a gym, at the beach, or on grass in a organized team fashion or with just a group of people.  It is relatively easy sport to learn.  It does not require expensive equipment, and it can be enjoyed by people of almost any age.  

  Beach volleyball is normally played outdoors in deep sand rather than in a gymnasium on the hard floor.  The rules are almost identical to its traditional indoor counterpart.

Indoor volleyball can be either select/club or recreation teams. 

Select/club teams are the competitive divisions for volleyball. This is for players with more advanced skills, similar to travel teams in soccer and lacrosse.  There are open tryouts that are held for team selections.

House/recreation volleyball is the non-competitive, instructional division.  This type of league will teach the rules of the game, basic fundamental skills, and techniques while having fun and competing against each other in matches. Everyone is accepted to play regardless of ability.
