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, learn a few rules, utilize very little equipment, and play the game almost anywhere. 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.

Special Olympics volleyball is a winter sport where athletes train and compete from October through January with the hopes of competing at the state Winter Games.
