Michigan Boys Volleyball
Michigan Boys Volleyball Conference is in its third season of high school boys volleyball. The conference has grown from 4 schools in the spring of 2018 to 12 in the spring of 2019. In a meeting this fall and over 20 new schools are interested in joining. 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 to warrant a state tournament, the transition will be seamless.

Michigan High School Boys Volleyball History
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 and Paw Paw also formed teams.
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.
