National Volleyball Center

The $4.6 million National Volleyball Center opened in September 1998. The Center is winning raves as one of the finest volleyball facilities in the world. It is unique in that it was built to the highest standards required by world-class volleyball players, with high ceilings, spacious off-court clearances, Olympic quality lighting and a suspended wood Bio-Cushion II floor.

An addition state investment in 2010 allowed for a phase 2 expansion of the National Volleyball Center to allow completion of the original vision for the Center. The expansion will create three new courts, adding 22,000 square feet and will include a championship court with increased seating capacity.

To date, the NVC has hosted volleyball tournaments, practices, league games, youth camps and an increasing number of major college volleyball events. Other sports including basketball, indoor soccer, cheerleading, and high school physical education classes have also tested the new facility.
