Youth Volleyball

Season: Spring, Fallclientuploads/Youth Sports/volleyball-girl.jpg

In 1895, William G. Morgan, an instructor at the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in Holyoke, Mass., decided to blend elements of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball to create a game for his classes of businessmen which would demand less physical contact than basketball. He created the game of Volleyball (at that time called mintonette). Morgan borrowed the net from tennis, and raised it 6 feet 6 inches above the floor, just above the average man's head.

During a demonstration game, someone remarked to Morgan that the players seemed to be volleying the ball back and forth over the net, and perhaps "volleyball" would be a more descriptive name for the sport.

Practices include specific drills to help children develop motor skills and improve coordination. Most importantly, this YMCA kids volleyball league emphasizes teamwork, fair play, self-confidence, and fun. Volunteers coach our teams and are carefully trained to work with children, build skills, and encourage character development in a non-competitive environment. Volleyball for kids is a great way to keep kids healthy and active. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.
