The Game Will Find a Way

Please submit to mvp@usav.org any picture or video you have taken of how you helped the game of volleyball find a way to be played.  This means, in Kesselville, that the two sides, no matter how few or many there are on a side, are playing OVER A NET. What the net actually ends up being is a big part of the fun, but also we are looking at the amazing places that volleyball can be found around the world. For example, being played on the side of a mountain or on the border of two nations.  

Thanks in advance for your help in growing the game together. 

Thanks to MrVolleywood on YouTube for this awesome example. 

Thanks to Berlin spielt Volleyball for showing us how to "keep the ball flying."

You can play volleyball at any age! These players lowered the net, used a lighter ball and sat in chairs.


At the 1996 Paralympic Sitting Volleyball Clinic the mascot joined in the fun.

Furniture as the net, balloon as the ball and a cat as the ref?! Works for us!
