Michigan Boys Volleyball

Michigan Boys Volleyball

Michigan Boys Volleyball Conference is the home of high school boys volleyball in Michigan. The conference has grown from 4 schools in the spring of 2018 to 37 in the spring of 2022. Boys Volleyball will likely be the next boys sport to be sanctioned by the Michigan High School Athletic Association.

It is our intention to grow this sport in lockstep with MHSAA regulations so that when there are enough schools (roughly 10% of the schools in the state) to warrant a state tournament, the transition will be seamless. If you have any questions, please contact Jason Heerema, GR Christian Athletic Director or call cell at 616.340.6802.


Michigan High School Boys Volleyball History

Spring 2018
The inaugural season saw the formation of the four-school West Michigan Boys Volleyball Conference, comprised of Allendale, Grand Rapids Christian, Grand Haven, and Kalamazoo Christian.  Grand Haven won the first-ever Conference Champion. Additionally, West Ottawa formed a team.

Spring 2019
Our second season saw a name change to MIBoysVB to reflect the larger statewide footprint. Twelve schools formed two divisions. The Metro division includes Bath, Battle Creek St. Philip, GR Christian, Kalamazoo Christian, Lansing, and Lowell. The Lakeshore division is comprised of Allendale, Grand Haven, Mona Shores, Reeths Puffer, South Christian, and West Ottawa. The Metro division crowned co-champions Kalamazoo Christian and GR Christian and the Lakeshore division crowned West Ottawa. In the first ever post-season Regional Championship, Grand Haven beat GR Christian for the title.
