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.

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.
On Sunday, November 3rd, 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. The team rallied together after one of the best servers, Ryley, was sidelined with an injury early in the season. But as matches were won, this team set a new goal for themselves..…to go undefeated.
The whole team was a part of their final victory with each player scoring at least one ACE and consistently making serve after serve.Katy lead the team with 16 serves doing her best to catch Jessica, who had led the team in serves for the season. However as the third set got tight with the score at 11-11, Jessica scored the last 4 points winning the game and pulling ahead to keep her position as #1 server of the season. It was a quick paced game with Digs from Rennah, Railen, and Jessica doing their part to keep from getting a sideout. Katy and Jordan led the season in Serve Receptions with 21 and 14 respectively. Kaylee and rookie Rennah share third best receiver with a total of 11 SR for the season. And a shout out to our other rookie Justin who ended the season with 52% serve rate, great job.
Congratulations 10U GORC Green on your undefeated season!!!
