High School Boys Volleyball

There are three opportunities for High School boys to play organized volleyball:

  • FALL: NoVA HS Boys Volleyball League - see details below
  • WINTER-SPRING: Boys Club Volleyball
  • SUMMER: Outdoor Tournaments

Northern Virginia High School Boys Volleyball League (NVHSBVL)

NVHSBVL was started in the 2000s when school-sponsored boys volleyball was discontinued in Northern Virginia. The NVHSBVL provides boys across Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax, Loudoun  and other nearby counties the opportunity to form teams around school affiliations and play competitive volleyball during the fall season.  Teams are coached by volunteers and are not limited to boys attending the named school although our preference is to keep boys from the same schools together.  Teams either practice at the school or at other local gyms.  League matches start in September and happen 1 to 2 times per week through early November.  Most matches are in a "tri-match" format where 3 teams play a mini round round in 3 hours.  Teams typically play around 16 matches in a season.

The stated purpose of  the NVHSBVL:

  • Provide competitive volleyball opportunities for high school boys attending Northern Region schools of the VHSL (Virginia High School League)
  • Foster and promote participation in boys volleyball, with an emphasis on teaching the skills and sportsmanship
  • Obtain the addition of boys volleyball as a sanctioned varsity sport in the Northern Region of the VHSL in the very near future

The fall 2023 season saw record levels of participation, with 49 Boys teams: 

  • Alexandria City HS (x2)
  • Annandale HS (x2)
  • Arlington
  • Battle VBC (x5)
