In brief: Some can
Some can and some can not.
.. It depends on how much their disease is affecting their airway. It would be more common that the 13 year old will have difficulty but might be able to pay some before fatiguing (which is not a problem).

In brief: Depends
Cystic fibrosis can vary from patient to patient.
Symptoms and severity vary tremendously. So yes, it possible for a 13 year old to be able to play volleyball and other sports without significant problems. I would recommend consulting with your CF center physician who will be able to advise you in more specific detail.
