The volleyball was created in 1895 and since then has become increasingly present in society. Since, its implications are provided by the high performance in education, specifically in schools which is very widespread. But often what we observed is a practice very similar to that of adults, can cause an early specialization and the future could cause damage. From this perspective the study aimed to ascertain whether there is specialization in school early and is of great importance, since even today, with all developments in the process of professional learning, many teachers choose to use these more traditional methods, thus, so important in that it detects whether this fact is common or not, interfere positively in the training of students. Search in which answer is being inserted the boot early in schools, on the appropriate age for initiating the teaching of volleyball. For this, a search was carried out as described, and applied a questionnaire with five open questions in Physical Education teachers from schools in the region of Osasco, especially in private schools, besides observing the class during and after the interview with the professional. With the results found that most of the volleyball practice begins in the classroom around 11 and 13 years as indicated in the literature, aims at teaching the fundamentals, where the majority uses games adapted for the teaching. With that, we're not starting early, teachers are within the age range indicated by the literature, but there was an exception to a teacher.
