Govs volleyball competes in the Independent School League (ISL) and the larger New England Prep School Girls Volleyball Association (NEPSGVA). The team has been one of the top performers in New England Class B over the past few years, regularly qualifying for the New England playoffs and winning the championship in 2012. The team aims to build upon these successes by returning to and making more waves in the tournament playoffs this fall. Govs graduates have continued on to the next level, playing in college at numerous different levels.
No matter if you’ve been playing club for years or simply want to learn the game now, the team welcomes athletes excited to play the game that want to do so with like-minded individuals. The coaches have developed a program to help veteran and new volleyball players improve their individual skills as members of a cohesive unit. Fundamentals, all-around hustle, mental focus, disciplined play, and having fun are all paramount to the program. In recent years the team has successfully managed an “athlete conversion project,” taking athletes from other sports, most often basketball, and adapting their athletic skills to the volleyball court while also getting them in good shape for their other upcoming seasons. The project has been a huge success due largely to the athleticism and competitive nature that these athletes brought to the volleyball court.
The coaches strive to foster a love of volleyball that will grow throughout a player’s time here at Govs and, when interested, continue on at the next level. Whatever their ability when they join the program, if an individual wants to play at the collegiate level, the coaches are committed to supporting the player make that goal become a reality. Govs graduates have gone on to play in college at the club, NAIA, and NCAA level.
