The Huntsville Volleyball Association runs leagues for adults 18 years and older.
The Huntsville area offers many opportunities for juniors to get started in, and pursue competitive
volleyball. Grade school and middle school volleyball is a great introduction to gauge potential and
interest in the sport. High school volleyball programs are for the "next level" player, possibly
interested in being recruited for college volleyball.
