Volleyball is the forth most played game in the world!
It involves the use of the full body muscle mass and range of motion in order to be played. Through volleyball, kids can develop coordination, agility, balance, adaptation and endurance in a fast paced environment. The ball can’t be held: this means players must adapt and react quickly to the different situations of the game, and learn to cooperate and work together to reach the goal.
The top example of team sport
One single person can’t play volleyball. Building a solid game means building teamwork, communication and trust in others. Volleyball allows kids to develop valuable social skills within a highly diverse and active community.

Volleyball Ireland’s student referee course is aimed at secondary level students. The full day course covers both theory and practical elements of refereeing a volleyball match.
CEV School Project
The CEV School Project aims to bring volleyball into schools in order to grow the participation of kids aged 9-13 years into volleyball. The project will create the opportunity for children to progress from schools to clubs within their areas while also strengthening club/school bonds.
