Volleyball Leagues with Playworks

  1. Updates

This year’s volleyball season was a blast for Playworks Denver! More than 120 girls and boys from our 11 schools participated in a month-long volleyball league. Players were able to build skills and confidence, make friends and have fun. 

Despite the crazy weather in April, our games still had over 90% attendance with kids bubbling over with excitement and positive encouragement for their teammates.
