GORSE GETS HEALTHY

Volleyball half term camp 30/10/22

Hi all,

I hope you’ve all had a fantastic half term!

Please see write up below from Elaine, regarding the volleyball half term camp.

The annual Gorse Volleyball October half term camp took place at The Ruth Gorse Academy last week. Students were eager to keep training and playing on their days off from school and were able to learn new skills while making new friends from across the Trust.

Students from Elliott Hudson College also took part in the camp, and even helped secondary students during sessions. Additionally, a few veteran England Cadet players stopped by to help coach and provide demonstrations for GORSE students.

TGVC coaches focused on helping students understand the theory, strategies and tactics used during official 6v6 matches on full sized courts. This was a treat for those who attended the camp as most have never experience an opportunity to play on full size courts with official equipment provided by Leeds Gorse Volleyball Club. Coaches agreed the standard of play has drastically improved since this time last year. One of the student volunteer coaches from University of Leeds was extremely impressed and stated some of the top GORSE students would rival players on the University teams!
