About Volleyball - V


Our program is built on a foundation of mind, body and soul.

Focusing on the student-athletes’ minds, academics in the classroom is a priority when playing a school sport. We make it part of the mission to help build a well-rounded female athlete who can learn life lessons, as well as volleyball skills throughout their time in the program. The bodies of our female athletes are equally important when it comes to training; therefore, all student-athletes participate in the strength and conditioning program and work with Lipscomb Academy’s nutritionist. And last the soul - the volleyball program spends time in devotionals, reflecting on life, building relationships and giving the student-athletes a place to grow spiritually, emotionally and physically. The Lipscomb Academy Volleyball Program competes in the TSSAA Division II AA Central Region.
