Fukurodani Volleyball Uniform

The boys' volleyball club's jacket is white with black trim on the hem and cuffs, and two black and gold stripes on the front. Their sweatpants are white with a black and gold v-strip down each side. Their jerseys are white with gold accents, black sides and short sleeves, the "ics" logo, and "Fukurōdani" written in kanji. During practice matches, the members wear dark blue t-shirts and white shorts. During official matches, they wear their team jersey and black shorts with a gold stripe on each side.

The Boys' Volleyball Team is currently a top four team in Tokyo and the ace of the team, Bokuto, is one of the top five aces in the nation, just barely missing the top three. Additionally, the volleyball team has gone to Nationals each of the last three years, coinciding with the ace's attending years. At the Spring High Nationals (2013), they finished as runners up and lost to Ichibayashi High.

Fukurodani's most notable players are Bokuto, the captain and one of the Top 5 Aces in the nation, and Akaashi, the team's setter and vice-captain.

Fukurōdani's team is also a member of the Fukurōdani Academy Group, which is composed of teams from the Kanto Region. For years, the schools have been holding summer training camps and practice matches with one another.

The school's official representative is an owl, coinciding with Bokuto's appearance and name.

Trivia

  • In accordance with the team representative, Bokuto and Akaashi dubbed their team the "Owls" during their mini-practice matches against Kuroo, Tsukishima and Lev during the Tokyo Expedition Arc.
  • During the Spring High-Tokyo Representative Playoffs, the Boys' Volleyball Team was cheered on by the school's students, cheerleaders, and band.
  • Although it seems like Bokuto and Akaashi are the main players of Fukurōdani, other players: Konoha, Komi, Sarukui etc. are also outstanding players, able to hold the other team off until Bokuto gets back into shape.
  • Fukuro (梟) in Fukurōdani translates to owl in English.
  • Fukurōdani has participated in the Spring High tournament 28 times and this time is their 7th consecutive appearance.
  • Fukurōdani's official banner reads "一球入魂" ("Ikkyū nyūkon") which translates to "Pour all your soul into each ball."
  • In the anime, there is a player with a #10 Fukurōdani jersey however his jersey colors indicate that he is a Libero and thus not Shūichi Anahori. This appears to be a mistake.
