About the game:

Sitting Volleyball can be played by almost anyone, and these clinics are open to a variety of individuals and skill levels. The young, old, men, women, girls, boys - the disabled and the able-bodied - are welcome to play. In fact, by eliminating jumping, which can be adversely affected by disability or age, Sitting Volleyball puts all players on a level playing field and brings disabled and able-bodied individuals together to play an enjoyable sport without limiting anyone’s abilities.

In order to be a member of the US National Sitting Volleyball Team or to qualify for Sitting Volleyball in the Paralympics, athletes must have a physical disability that limits their ability to play the game of Volleyball as we know it: standing up. This typically includes athletes who are affected by amputation (of the arm or leg), major knee tears, polio, knee or hip replacements, or any major muscle loss.

The City of Los Angeles and Triumph partnered to host clinics at L.A. Parks & Rec facilities for youth with disabilities. Our goal is to help create sport and ability awareness in a safe and fun environment.
