Emily Burlison is the International Events Assistant at USA Volleyball. USA Volleyball will be hosting the NORCECA Champions Cup at the Olympic Training Center and they could really use some help getting volunteers. Match days are Thursday, 8/22 – Saturday, 8/24 with matches at 1:00, 3:00, 5:00, and 7:00 each day. We would love if volunteers could work at least two matches on the days they are available. We need volunteers for these positions:
Retrieving: At each corner of the court rolling balls around the edges.
Wiping: Wiping up the court after diving to keep it dry.
Flag: Every match begins with the national anthems of the two teams. This requires 4 people (x2) holding the country flag on-court.
Volunteers can register online at this link https://survey.sogosurvey.com/r/yQ8eOB.
This is a great opportunity for local athletes and fans to get a chance to see Team USA in action at an international event. We would love your help in making this event a success! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Emily Burlison firstname.lastname@example.org (719) 228-6800
Sophie Buschmann, 16 Black, earned the 2019 AAU Volleyball Academic All-American award! The Academic All-American recognizes student-athletes for their excellence in academics as well as athletics. Sohpie was the only athlete from Colorado to earn this award.
Last week NORCO's Alexis Stucky (16 Black) was a member of the USA Girls Select A1 Red Team at the USAV's High Performance Championships in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
'After winning its first four matches, 3-0, including one against the team from Chile, Girls Select A1 Red, which was playing up two divisions, encountered the South American team again and pulled out a 3-2 win.'
Setting for the team, Lexi and the team went undefeated, competing against the Chile Women's International team (for the third time) in the Gold Bracket.
At NORCO Juniors, we offer the "BEST" training, the highest standards of coaching and the belief that "players come first"! We have "35" years of training, competing and sending players off to their school or collegiate programs AND developing lifelong relationships with our families. We are a Non-Profit 501c (3) organization that offers competitive teams at both the Regional and National levels. Our membership includes players, parents and coaches that are passionate and committed to maximizing each players full potential. When you join our family, you see our goal is to offer a very organized and dedicated club that families can afford.
At NORCO, we also offer a less expensive and shorter time commitment program - Prep. Our Prep Program (designed for players ages 10-17) is a 14 week commitment with 3 tourneys, all taking place at NORCO. Those tryouts are held in October and details are located on our Programs tab. No cuts are made; players are placed on teams based on skill level first, then age. Prep membership fees are all inclusive - practices, practice and game uniforms, tournaments, and coach's pay.
My recruiting process was one that was long and full of second guessing. I was always trapped in wanting to get it over with, and wanting to take my time. University of New Hampshire came into my vision late in my recruiting process. I had found things I had loved in many schools, but as I started to lose hope to find “that feeling”, life gave me a gift. It came in the form of a card during one of my tournaments from Coach Feliciano. As I did my research, this unexpected gift fell into place to fit my perfect mold for a school. I am so excited to continue not only my athletic career in New Hampshire but also my education. This gift is one of many that comes from believing that things happen for a reason. I had schools that I had loved that had turned me down, and that rejection led me to where I am today. It humbled me and taught me that there is a plan for everyone because even though hearing no is hard, I have found a school that checks my boxes. On the other side of things, I had schools that I had turned down and feared that I would regret the choice in the future. As a person who is analytical and seeks perfection I am blessed to be in a place that I have no regrets in my decision and how long it took.
As much stress and anxiety hovers above the requiting process, any advice I can give someone going through it is to enjoy it and trust the process. All the emails you send and camps you attend even if that school ends up not being the one for you, it has shown you that much more of what you want and what you don’t. You are part of the 7% of athletes that has been blessed with the gifts, opportunity, and work ethic to play a varsity sport in college. That alone is a unique experience and one that should be experienced. So don’t rush it, take your time and see the beauty in the uniqueness of your situation as I did. And my club years at NORCO has been incredibly rewarding and fulfilling.
