Athletes participating in Special Olympics volleyball benefit from the camaraderie that comes from competing in a team sport as well as the training that enables them to successfully serve and return a volleyball.
Teams can participate in Unified Sports volleyball. Unified Sports is a program that assigns Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (partners) to the same teams for training and competition.
As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
