SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah High School Activities Association voted to add boys volleyball as a sanctioned sport beginning in the 2023-24 school year.

UHSAA announced the vote on Thursday, March 24.

The organization announced the news with the following statement:

“The Utah High School Activities Association will be adding a new sanctioned sport to its offerings in the 2023-24 school year.

The UHSAA Board-of-Trustees voted Thursday to add the sport of Boys’ Volleyball to the Association’s list of sanctioned activities, with state tournament competition beginning in the Spring season of the 2023-24 academic year.
