Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net suspended in the air. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules, which are quite extensive.
Volleyball competition at the Arctic Winter Games begins with a round-robin tournament followed by a medal round based upon the final rankings in round-robin play. Volleyball only has one age category: Junior for both male and female competitors. Each male and female team consists of up to ten athletes and a coach for each participating contingent.
