Boys’ Volleyball

WELCOME! We look forward to meeting you at our Fall events.

Program Overview

Head Coach Ben Diaz launched the program in 2018, immediately leading the team to compete for NYSAIS championships. As the Director of Poly Volleyball, Diaz has already achieved tremendous success with the Poly Girls’ Volleyball program, and has the boys headed in the right direction with a combined 14-4 record over two seasons, the latter culminating in a loss to Fieldston in the NYSAIS championship match. In 2022, Alex Moule picked up the reins. Stressing a team-first mentality, Moule ensures his players are well-versed in fundamentals before assigning them to their ideal positions. With his high standards for hard work, accountability, and sportsmanship, it’s only a matter of time before the Poly boys rise  to become one of the premier prep programs in the city.
