Kennesaw State Volleyball debuts new high tech Taraflex floor

Two years in the making, Kennesaw State's brand new Taraflex volleyball court made its debut as the high-flying Owls opened their season in September at the KSU Convocation Center.



The Owls, a volleyball power in the ASUN Conference, became the 52nd team in the nation with a Taraflex court, which is made of the exact same materials as the courts used in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics where Team USA won the gold medal this past summer.


"Having our own Kennesaw State volleyball specific playing floor is a huge moment for us and will help continue taking our volleyball program to the next level," said KSU head coach Keith Schunzel. "From player health to the fan experience, walking into the Convo on volleyball game days is now a spectacular event. I want to thank all the donors who made this possible as well as our athletic administration. Big things continue happening with KSU Athletics, and this is a great day for our program and fans."

Taraflex is globally renowned for its superior long-term safety features, its immediate protection of athletes and enhanced grip and slide for the best playability. The padding makes diving, sliding and jumping easier on the players' bodies, while its sleek and durable design turns any facility into a volleyball-centric arena.




A group of nine donors that helped raise $75,000 towards the cost of the Taraflex court. The group of donors included current volleyball parents, current and former KSU staff members, as well as generous community members and fans of the program.
