Sitting Volleyball - CHI Health, Omaha, Nebraska (NE)
Sitting volleyball players

Sitting Volleyball is played from a seated position on a 6m x 10m court with the net at 1.15m for men and 1.0m for women. Other than court setup, the same rules apply. Athletes must have a physical disability that limits their ability to play standing up. This includes athletes who are affected by amputation, major knee tears, polio, knee or hip replacements, or any major muscle loss.

This typically includes athletes who are affected by amputation (of the arm or leg), major knee tears, polio, knee or hip replacements, or any major muscle loss. In fact, by eliminating jumping, which can be adversely affected by disability or age, Sitting Volleyball puts all players on a level playing field and brings disabled and able-bodied individuals together to play an enjoyable sport without limiting anyone’s abilities. The local team is the Nebraska High Rollers. They practice at the Westroads Club in the Volleyball Center.

The season runs February through the first part of June. This is a Paralympics Omaha event and is sponsored by Immanuel Rehabilitation Center, Eastern Nebraska Wheelchair Athletic Association, Great Plains Volleyball and the Volleyball Center.
