Volleyball is loads of fun and a very social game. It’s the only hi-energy, zero body contact, mixed team sport you can play indoors and outdoors - whatever your ability. As a sport, volleyball requires skill, fitness, strategic thinking and the desire to play as part of a team, but whatever level you play at, volleyball can enhance your life, improving fitness and coordination. Now is as good a time as any to give volleyball a go and find out why it is one of the top three most-played sports in the world!

Sunday - All-Skills Volleyball Camp
This February the International Volleyball Academy Hong Kong is running a co-ed volleyball camp at Hong Kong International School. The camp is aimed toward 6th to 10th-grade players from all schools at the beginner or intermediate level. Players will be divided according to their skill levels. They will develop fundamental skills—such as passing, setting, hitting, and serving—in addition to teamwork and cooperation in game-like drills.
This camp will be run by Henry Chan and Roy Tsang, both of whom have over ten years of experience playing and coaching volleyball. Henry is the head coach at IVAHK; he has been providing open gyms and private lessons with us for the past year. Henry was a member of the Hong Kong National Team in 2013 and 2015, and he has also played for seven years at the South China Athletic Association (SCAA). Roy coaches the SCAA youth volleyball team and local schools in Hong Kong. He has U.S. collegiate volleyball experience at Santa Monica, California and also plays with Henry on the SCAA team. Both coaches are extremely passionate about training players in all aspects of the sport.
