About Our Volleyball Program
The GCS athletic program gives students another opportunity to grow in the Christian Life. Life is full of adversity, tribulation if you ask Jesus, John 16:33. Athletics provides a safe environment to encounter adversity, failure, and admonishment. We build a broader context to the athletic event, which is important in itself, but the athletic event is an opportunity to honor our team, school, and Lord.
Grace Christian is committed to using sports to cultivate discipline. Discipline is a foundational Christian virtue and valuable life tool; it’s essential to success in sports, First Corinthians 9:24-27. Even in defeat there can be victory. Grace values the development of the student athlete as much as the outcomes. There’s no clearer biblical principle on display in team athletics as the Law of the Harvest, Galatians 6:7.
Varsity Volleyball: 9th – 12th grade
We are entering our 3rd year with our Varsity Volleyball program back and looking to continue the upward trend. The varsity program is growing past the developmental phase to competitive play. Student athletes must be prepared to compete for playing time and work to keep it. Our Varsity Volleyball athletes are judged on athletic ability, work ethic, attitude, and knowledge of the coach’s strategies. Role playing, like in basketball, is critical to the team’s success. The best players need support from role players for the team to be successful. Playing time will be determined by what will drive team success.
Middle School Volleyball: 6th – 8th grade
The Middle School Volleyball program is here to introduce the fundamentals to student athletes and develop those fundamentals for varsity play. In the course of 3 years student athletes develop teamwork, communication, and the physical fundamentals. The system gets a pretty even game experience to the student athletes that work hard in practice. Winning is fun, but that is not the primary objective for middle school sports.
GCS hosts a Volleyball Camp each summer for 6th through 12th grade. Every summer a week is set aside for volleyball camp. Usually weekday mornings we break out the volleyballs and focus on a fundamental. It’s a great time to bring back to remembrance some old muscle memory and begin to prepare for the upcoming season.
Camp this year is July 17-21 9-11:30am Cost: $20 for grades 6-12.
Practices and home games are held in our Gym on the GCS campus. The gym features a full court plus four additional practice baskets, boys and girls locker rooms and a weight training room.
