Sports is just like cardio...do you avoid cardio? I'm pretty sure I answered your question...

You can still put on muscle doing sports on the side, I did. It's best though to do them on different days, for example do volleyball mon, wed, fri and sun and hit the gym on the other days

If you're that worried about it then just eat more food.

It's true to some extent ... cardio and weight training are somewhat opposing ideas. However, I don't think volley ball is too bad since there is little running around and mostly involves jumping (using explosive power of large muscle groups).

If you like to play volley ball then keep playing. If you like to body build then keep doing that. However, you may have to accept that your results at both will not be ideal when doing them concurrently.

There's some sports that one would have to give up if they were really passionate about bodybuilding, especially at a competitive level. I gave up track (definite no no) and soccer. Just too much running involved. I have a hard enough time keeping/gaining, so I made my choice. Now, don't get me wrong, I'll go out every once in awhile with some friends and play some pick up, but I know that it's only for a quick "cardio" sesh.
If you still want to play vball, it's not that bad. IW is right, a lot of explosive movements. Just take into consideration the general amount of calories you would average burn and make sure you work them into your program!

Keep active, have fun, and do what you love dude, at the end of the day, that's all that matters.

During my training I try to reinforce what would normally go against my nature, like jumping, jumping into a squat, switch lunge jumping, or up and downs. Whatever it is I try to reinforce different patterns. !

I don't think you need to be training for 2+ hours in the gym. Find a sensible plan--train with weights for an hour (max); three to four times a week.
