Han-il Middle school volleyball team, first XV

Its certainly an all male club. But given the environment and culture. It’s a boys school, with an almost all-male staff, and in Korea, females don’t play sports. The exceptions are few such as Kim, yu-na, the ice skater.

Though none of them could claim to be expert in playing volleyball, they do take their game seriously. Win or lose, it builds good team spirit. The game has it’s unorthodox moves too, with some returns being inspired from Soccer, with use of the feet to effect the saves.

It’s all comers welcome (so long as you’re a guy), with no deference to position you have at the school; the principal and vice-principal nearly always participate, with frequently up to 8 players on a what would normally be a 6 man volleyball team.
