This is our third year competing in Volleyball with T.A.P.P.S. against other Dallas-area private schools.

Volleyball is a Fall sport invented in 1895 by YMCA physical education director William G. Morgan. It is the only high energy and zero body contact team sport you can play indoors or outdoors.

Volleyball requires skill, fitness, strategic thinking, and the desire to play as part of a team. Whatever level you play at, volleyball can enhance your life by improving overall fitness and coordination.

We currently have two volleyball sports programs:

  • High School TAPPS Volleyball Program (9th-12th)
  • Elementary and Middle School Volleyball Program (5th-8th grades)

Please check back at a later date for 18-19 schedule
