Volleyball has become the second-most-played sport in the world. In essence, it is a rebound sport with a very quick transition from offense to defense. Players must be ready at all times. It is the ultimate team game, in which cannot be dominated by an individual player. Besides tennis, volleyball is the only sport where players cannot stop the ball. Players must think before making ball contact, and then proceed with an action in which changes the direction of the ball without stopping it.
Gaston Galaxy Volleyball Club, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2016 to provide an environment where juniors can develop as student athletes through the sport of volleyball, and to increase the quality of play in Gaston County.
The club offers competitive developmental programs for female juniors, starting at the U12 level of play. Each age group emphasizes game like drills in practice, which transfers into faster “reading” of the game, or volleyball IQ. The game teaches the game. Coaches develop and mentor competitive teamwork and systems based upon what has been learned.
Gaston Galaxy is dedicated to training players at early levels of the game. We do not believe in locking younger players into positions, in which focus is only on a particular motor skill during practice. Our young female athletes will development the base skills needed from all positions on the court. The club embraces the old school way of training, and our young athletes will transition into really good all around volleyball players.
We strive to teach younger players a “growth” mindset, so they can develop the essential skills to play volleyball at a competitive level, and in turn, the game becomes more enjoyable and fun, thus becoming a lifelong passion. We are committed. Our motivation, planning and execution is based off our love for the sport, the love for our families and love for Gastonia.
