Sport Description

Volleyball is a non-contact sport that is played indoors. Each team will have a minimum of 4 players on the court at a time with the object to get the ball grounded on the other side of the court. Each team has three hits in order to get the ball to the other side. The goal is to win 2-out-of-3 sets to win the match. Volleyball is an exciting sport where no experience is necessary! It allows you to escape the stress from school and get some frustration out as you pound the ball to the ground. This version of Volleyball as part of the Friday Night Series is a free, one-night tournament. So get registered and come on out for this fun weekend event!
