The Deerfield Academy volleyball program consists of two competitive teams. At the varsity level, students are selected for their skill, attitude, and commitment to team play. We practice four days a week and compete on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. In addition, we have participated in the New England Championship tournament since its founding two years ago and send several players to the All-Star tournament each year.
We play Northfield Mount Hermon School, Andover, Exeter, Loomis Chaffee, Hotchkiss, Taft, Hopkins, Miss Porter’s, St Paul’s, Williston, Choate Rosemary Hall, and Worcester. The junior varsity team is an integral part of the program, as many of our students rise through the ranks during their time at Deerfield. We welcome all interested students to join the program and would be happy to discuss the options with you personally if desired.
Deerfield Volleyball is coached by Head Coach Khaleh Thomas.
