SPORT SEASON
March - May

The game of volleyball is attractive to all types of players, from competitive to recreational, young and old. To play volleyball, players need to acquire a few basic skills and learn a few rules. The aim of the sport is to score more points by hitting the ball with the hands and sending it over the net to the opponent's court.

Expand Your Knowledge

We believe it is important for our coaches to receive certification training in order to provide them with the tools needed to help our athletes have a positive sport experience.  By taking the online certification training, coaches will learn best practices when approaching sports training with our athletes. Certification is required for certain coaching situations and recommended for all coaches.   Please also make sure to check out the SONC/SONV Rules and the National Governing Body Rules for Volleyball (below).
