Ready. Set. Spike! Hit the net with the folks who invented the game - the Y! Originally called mintonette, volleyball was created by the YMCA. An experimental game, mintonette combined a variation of the badminton net with elements of basketball, the German game of fistball and handball.

The first volleyball game was played at Springfield College in 1896. The philosophy of YMCA youth sports programs is to use sports as a tool to develop each participant physically, mentally and spiritually.

Emphasis is on 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 non-completive environment.

Our youth volleyball program is a co-ed league.
