On Saturday, March 7, Playworks hosted our annual Volleyball Jamboree, the culminating event for our developmental volleyball sports league! A total of 88 students from our Portland metro partner elementary schools came together to play several games of volleyball to show off and practice their new skills. 

 

  

Playworks builds empathy and teamwork through our interscholastic/developmental sports leagues, which teach students the skills of games like basketball and volleyball. In many cases, these Playworks leagues provide opportunities that students may not otherwise have.

The jamboree was attended by students from Lent, Sitton, Kelly, Highland, Whitcomb, Rockwood, Marysville, Glenfair, Beach, Woodmere, and Ogden Elementary Schools.
