Teens spike their way to glow-in-the-dark volleyball game in Coconut Creek (includes video story)

It wasn’t a typical volleyball game for a group of students at Coconut Creek on Thursday night. They played in the dark, alleviating the sense of competition and making it easier to just have fun.

The game was at the Coconut Creek Community Center.

“With all the lights on, it’s like, ‘okay we got to be serious’ [because the] spotlights are on you,” said volleyball player Kiryn Williams. “I can barely see in front of me and no one can see me either, so it’s okay if I mess up.”

Most of the teens involved are a part of the community center’s volleyball league and haven’t been on a court since summer due to in-season sports.
