Region C Volleyball

What is Volleyball?

Volleyball provides the opportunity for athletes to learn the sports skills of the game as well as working with others. Individuals who wish to participate in volleyball can compete in Individual Skills Competition to develop basic volleyball skills. Athletes also have the opportunity to compete with their non-disabled peers on teams in Unified volleyball.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender when appropriate.

Individuals and teams in Illinois who participate in volleyball compete locally at Region Qualifying events. They are then eligible to advance to state Championships at the Fall Games held in Rockford in October.
