Women's Volleyball

2019 Volleyball Team

The sport of volleyball was invented in Holyoke, MA on Feb. 9, 1895 by Wiliam G. Morgan, a local YMCA director. Volleyball is a Holyoke staple, and was invented less than six miles away from Springfield College, where basketball was invented around the same time period.

Holyoke Community College boasts the only two-year intercollegiate volleyball program in Western and Central Massachusetts. The two-time New England Champions (2002 & 2003) train at HCC's Bartley Center, a first-class facility that features three practice courts, a 32-foot-high ceiling, and a highly resilient "fixed floating" maple floor for competition matches. The Lady Spikers enjoy a tough schedule, including multi-team tournaments and matches against top-ranked Division II & III teams from New England, New York, and beyond.

If you are interested in playing this season, please fill out the athletic interest form.
