Tsubakihara Academy (Japanese: 椿原 (つばきはら) 学園 (がくえん) Tsubakihara Gakuen) is a high school in the Kanagawa Prefecture.

Volleyball Club Edit

The Boys' Volleyball Team is considerably strong. All members are solid at receiving and serving, and can pull off high-level plays (such as wipes, aiming serves, and feints).

The current generation has gone to nationals twice as Kanagawa's second representative.[1] However, during their first nationals, nerves got the better of them and they lost in the first round.

The following year, they were able to return to nationals once more. Unfortunately, although the team improved mentally, they still lost their first match to Karasuno.

Tsubakihara's most notable players are Captain Echigo, Ace Teradomari, and Pinch Server Himekawa. Echigo is level-headed and able to calm his teammates when they are nervous. As the team's ace, Teradomari uses a variety of powerful attacks and can spike despite difficult setups. His 190 cm height also allows him to spike above blocks. Although inexperienced, Himekawa is capable of scoring through ceiling serves and skilled at defense.

All members wear the same headband with school's full name on it. This writing was omitted in the anime adaptation, where the headbands are blank.

Spring High National TournamentEdit

For nationals, Tsubakihara wasn't exempt from the first round. Because they lost to Karasuno, they only played one match on the first day. This match was played on Court C as its third match of the day.
