Congrats to our 15 Black and 15 Blue teams for finishing first the last weekend of February. This is Coach Ragan and 15 Blue’s first tournament win of the season and the third for Coach Williams and 15 Black.
18 Black took second place in their second tournament of the season in Greensboro College. The went undefeated all day until the final game where they split the first two games and lost by two points in the tiebreaker match.
The team was joined on Saturday by 17 Black setter, Avery Scott (#8). Three so far have committed to colleges to play volleyball: Erin Whitman (Averett University, #10, OH), Megan Condon (Montreat College, #6, S) and Chelsea Davis (Montreat College, #15, OH/MB).
Congrats 18 Black!
This year our teams spent the Valentines weekend playing great volleyball and getting some medals in the end.
Our 17 Black team finished first in their first regional tournament of the year at Southwestern Randolph High School in Asheboro.
Playing at the Colonial Classic in Williamsburg, Virginia, 15 Black earned yet another great first place finish in the 15 Gold Bracket.
Our 13 Black team finished third in their tournament, losing in three sets in the semi-finals. According to their head coach, Jef Mei, this is the best this team has played all year.
Congrats NC Power!
If you missed our first meeting in January, don’t worry, we are having another one on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 6:30 to 8:00 PM at Pinetop Sports Club (3723 Pinetop Rd, Greensboro, NC 27410).
Hope to see you there
Though known as a sport dominated by girls, volleyball has grown locally for boys starting at a young age. Boys’ indoor volleyball is growing around the country, and we want it to get bigger here on the East Coast and especially in North Carolina.
NC Power has been getting boys who love to play volleyball and those willing to learn together for years. We were the first club in the Carolina Region to have a 14 and Under Boys’ team. Since then we have had athletes from all over North Carolina come through our gym and through our sand volleyball program. Our teams have excelled in tournaments, earning first place finishes in higher age groups. This year, NC Power has two boys’ teams: 14 and under and 16 and under, and we hope to have more in the future.
In addition, NC Sand has promoted the growth of boys’ volleyball. Many players on our teams have an initial background in sand volleyball. This past summer, NC Sand hosted their first annual “Boys Bash” as a national qualifier for the AAU Junior Olympic Championships in Hermosa Beach, CA. Our club sent the winning team, brothers Sam and Max Cashion, to California to play in the Championship. At the time, the two were 14 and 12, playing in the 16 and under division.
Part of our mission is to spark a passion for volleyball in every athlete that plays for our club, and NC Power wants to spread this passion to both girls and boys. That’s what this club is all about: growing the game.
