Sitting Volleyball Clinic

January 21 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

This FREE 1 hour clinic will introduce the sport of Sitting Volleyball to the community with a special focus on players 5 to 17 years old. Our goal is get youth involved – but all ages can participate.

Sitting Volleyball is a Paralympic Sport that is like regular volleyball, but played seated on the floor with a lower net. Participants must be able to scoot on the ground, wheelchairs are NOT used in this sport.

Sitting Volleyball can be played by almost anyone, and these clinics are open to a variety of individuals and skill levels. The young, old, men, women, girls, boys – the disabled and the able-bodied – are welcome to play. In fact, by eliminating jumping, which can be adversely affected by disability or age, Sitting Volleyball puts all players on a level playing field and brings disabled and able-bodied individuals together to play an enjoyable sport without limiting anyone’s abilities.

In order to be a member of the US National Sitting Volleyball Team or to qualify for Sitting Volleyball in the Paralympics, athletes must have a physical disability that limits their ability to play the game of Volleyball as we know it: standing up. This typically includes athletes who are affected by amputation (of the arm or leg), major knee tears, polio, knee or hip replacements, or any major muscle loss.
