The Volleyball program at Minnehaha Academy is a competitive, friendly, hard working group of student athletes. Our goal is to encourage our athletes to be strong leaders on and off the court, grow passion and love for volleyball, and work as a cohesive group. We strive to have all three high school teams start  practice together daily; plus the varsity athletes work with the middle school teams during the season also. We believe building a strong program starts with all ages and skills working together to achieve strong program chemistry.   

Season Commitment: 
High School practice starts mid-August.  7th-12th graders are allowed to try out. All 9th-12th Grade will be placed on a high school team.  
Once classes start, practice will be 3:30-6:00 pm. 
1-2 All-Day Saturday Tournaments 
Season ends Late October-Early November. 


Middle School:
Middle School Girls Volleyball has a team for any interested player. At least once a year, our Varsity Team and Coaches come down and work with our Middle School teams – it is always a highlight!
