  • Welcome to Raider Boys' Volleyball

    CONGRATULATIONS to the Boys' Varsity Volleyball Division 1 League Champions AND SECTION 1 Division 1 Champions!  The Raiders went 13-0 in league play and 2-0 in Section play....
    The fall 2023 Scarsdale High School athletic department will field two levels of Boys' Volleyball teams:
    • Varsity is for the top volleyball players, regardless of grade-level.
    • JVA and JVB are for players to develop their skills and abilities to give them the best chance to potentially move up to the Varsity level when their play is compatible with that level of competition.

  • Regular Season

    Varsity level volleyball is a commitment of about 3-4 hours per day, up to 7 days a week with 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 on the team's Google Classroom 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 early November for both teams.

    Varsity is then eligible for post-season play.
