GORSE Volleyball Update

2024 is shaping up to be a historic year for the volleyball programme! One of our big vision goals when the programme at GORSE began, was to have all U18s, U16s and U15s boys’ and girls’ teams qualify for Volleyball England’s ‘Last 8’ competition at the National Volleyball Centre. We are proud to say that as of yesterday evening, we have ALL earned a place at the ‘Last 8’!

This is a massive achievement and shows Leeds GORSE is the powerhouse of the North.

Thank you, teachers, for encouraging our students and GORSE as a whole for the phenomenal support. These student athletes have truly learnt what it means to be a team this season by holding each other accountable, being selfless teammates and sharing an internal drive to achieve a common goal together. Holly and Nelson have also been instrumental in this success allowing us to run more team trainings (allowing room for more students to compete) as well as specialised positional training and expertise.

The competition dates are as follows:

  • 3 March – U18s Last 8
  • 10 March – U16s Last 8
  • 16 March – U15s Last 8

It would be great to see some of you attending and cheering our students on. Well keep you posted on the location.

The top two teams from each age group will compete at the National Finals on 20-21 April. Fingers crossed we will return this year!
