Transcript of The History Of Volleyball

The sport of Volleyball has two Olympic disciplines: Volleyball and Beach Volleyball. Volleyball made its Olympic debut at the 1964 Tokyo Games and Beach Volleyball made its Olympic debut in Atlanta in 1996.
Volleyball in the United States is popular with both male and female participants of all ages. Almost all high schools and colleges in the United States have female volleyball teams, and most regions of the country have developmental programs for girls of all ages as well. While many areas of the country are forming male teams and development programs, there are still fewer opportunities for young male athletes to play volleyball in the United States than for young females.
