GORC Volleyball focuses first on basic skills including bumping, passing, and underhand serving. Once players successfully demonstrate basic skills, we then move on to more advanced skills including setting, hitting, tipping, blocking, and overhand serving. Typically, only the older kids (ages 13-14) will begin to learn rotations/positions. The ultimate goal is to be ready for High School level play when entering 9th grade.

Age, Eligibility for Spring Intramural League:
Teams are typically 7 to 9 players each, but only 5 are required to play. Team assignments are made in a variety of ways. In general, we attempt to keep teams together over time and with their prior coach when possible. This is to ensure consistency in training and playing. We do NOT make placements based on skill level. If a child has NOT played before, he or she is generally assigned to the team most in need. Of course we do our best to meet all special requests as made. But we cannot guarantee that all requests can be accommodated.
10U GORC Green were undefeated during the Fall 2014 volleyball season! The caliber of play in the county-wide 10U league was higher than normal this year but 10U Green was up for the challenge. The nine-member squad quickly came together and played as a team even though few of the girls had played together before. Coach Brian Rightnour moved them rapidly through typical 10U drills to start on strategic playing, usually not touched on until the 12U level. By the last game the girls were frequently using three hits and learning to aim their serves to the opposing teams’ weak spots. Way to go 10U Green!

On Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 10U GORC Green celebrated an 8-0 record ending their County season. This was the final year this group could play 10U Volleyball together as next year the majority of the team will be playing with 12U. Even with two new 8 year old players on the team, their confidence was high. This was the year ‘it just clicked’ for a lot of the players. Consistent serving and three hits were the goals for this season. T
Congratulations 10U GORC Green on your undefeated season!!!
