Welcome to Raider Boys' VolleyballThis fall, Scarsdale High School will field two Boys' Volleyball teams:
- Varsity is for the top volleyball players, regardless of grade-level.
- JV is for freshmen and sophomores to develop their skills and capabilities to give them the best chance to move up to the Varsity level.

Varsity level volleyball is a commitment of about 3-4 hours per day, 5 days a week and an occasional Saturday tournament. It is our expectation that athletes will be present for all team tryouts, scrimmages, practices, games, and tournaments.
The team's game and practice schedule will be available via shared Google Calendar. Each team will have their own calendar.
Missing practices and games will have an impact upon the student's playing time in subsequent practices and/or games.
The regular season ends in late October for the JV team and early November for the varsity team.
Varsity is then eligible for post-season play.
