Boys Volleyball

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The St. Laurence volleyball program is dedicated to providing strong leadership and competitive experiences, which provide students the opportunity to develop athletic skills, knowledge of the game, teamwork, sportsmanship, and character. The focus of the program is to educate and guide students from fundamental to advanced skills, challenging and inspiring them to succeed along the way. The student-athletes in the volleyball program are encouraged to strive for excellence on the court, in the classroom, and outside the walls of St. Laurence. Volleyball is offered at the varsity and JV level at STL, both of which are competitive in the CCL, with the most recent CCL Championship coming in 2014.
