If the words, "cobra", "jump serve", and "shoot set" ring a bell with you, you may know a little about the game of volleyball! Add some sand and sun and you have the increasingly popular sport, Sand Volleyball.
Community Christian School (CCS) is happy to announce our two new beautiful sand volleyball courts that sit adjacent to our secondary building on Seaton Court in Killearn! CCS has joined ranks with five other Leon County schools who have started sand volleyball teams, and is the first private school to start a team. CCS is the only school in Leon County to have their own sand volleyball courts.
The NCAA has officially recognized Sand Volleyball as an emerging sport for women. In the past two years alone, Sand Volleyball has seen a 26% increase in participation, and the Junior Sand Tour has seen as much as a 200% increase. Sand Volleyball has been an Official Olympic sport since 1996.
The Community Christian School Chargers will have five Varsity teams and up to five Junior Varsity teams. Sand volleyball is played 2 vs 2, and is an exciting and fast-paced game.
We invite our Tallahassee community to check out our new courts! And if you are interested in renting our courts, please contact Lorna Wolfkill, CCS Athletic Director, at 893-5219. Also, see our game schedule at www.ccs-chargers.org under the athletic tab, “Student Life”.
Community Christian School is located at 4859 Kerry Forest Parkway. Look for our sand volleyball signs! We hope to see you soon!
