Volleyball & Spikeball in MCS

Volleyball in MCS has gone from strength to strength with the numbers participating, growing, from year to year, since opening in 2009.

Students in MCS have the opportunity to play Spikeball in 1st year and Volleyball from 2nd year to 6th year.

Spikeball is an initiative developed by the Volleyball Association of Ireland to aid in introducing Volleyball to students. It is an adapted 4-player v 4-player volleyball game. Spikeball Volleyball is a fun and rewarding Volleyball experience. The objective of these adaptations is to encourage learning, promote physical activity, and increase the fun for the participants.

MCS girls, boys and mixed Spikeball teams compete annually in Laois, Regional and National blitz days.
