In schools and youth leagues across the country, volleyball has fast become a popular sport, especially amongst girls. In a 2012 survey conducted by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), volleyball ranked as the third most popular sport for females, only behind basketball and track and field. It has been part of the summer Olympics since 1964 and nearly every high school in America has a girls volleyball team.

Let's celebrate with hors d'oeuvres


Guess what? Your ball hit the roof
We've got proof, it's called one point

Fast-Paced Chants

Volleyball is a fast-paced game, so chants need to be quick and to the point or you'll be offering a cheer that doesn't relate to the current move. Quick chants like the ones above are perfect and can be applied throughout each game. After you've observed volleyball for a while, you'll likely come up with some unique cheers of your own as well.
