Our Mission

Team 559 is committed to the education of the whole person through excellence in volleyball. Team 559 is a a 501(c)(3) California non-profit organization committed to improving opportunities for the youth of the Central Valley.

Consider this...

Playing volleyball and being part of a team has a wealth of benefits. 

  • Girls who participate in sports have a higher level of self esteem.

  • Girls who participate in sports are three times more likely to graduate from high school.

  • Girls who participate in sports are 92% less likely to get involved with drugs.

  • Girls who participate in sports are 80% less likely to have an unwanted pregnancy.

Because club volleyball is so expensive which puts the experience out of reach for many, the mission of Team 559 Volleyball is to make club volleyball accessible to girls regardless of their situation.

About Us

Team 559 focuses on the personal and athletic development of the female student-athlete, through a safe, positive, and effective learning environment in which she may strive to achieve individual excellence within a team.

The volleyball court is our classroom, transformed to teach lessons of character, discipline, respect, responsibility, accountability, commitment, leadership, work ethic, teamwork, courage, integrity, communication, cooperation, the importance of sacrifice and sportsmanship.

We view our purpose as servant. We serve to improve the life of young women through sport.
