Congratulations Anna Dodson who is now playing for UCLA Volleyball! Dodson, a very decorated high school and former 3 year NORCO Club athlete under coaches Jim Stone, Steve Colpus and Cathy Mahaffey, is now wearing the #2 Jersey for the Bruins as a 6'5", Freshman, Middle Blocker. Anna chose UCLA because it had everything she was looking for, great teammates, coaches, and atmosphere all in one beautiful place. She lists her No. 1 reason she competes in volleyball is because she grew up with her friends playing the sport and decided to try it out in the 8th grade. Her biggest athletic thrill so far has been medaling in three different national qualifiers with her club team! Her career objective is playing professional volleyball overseas and then returning to go to law school to become a sports attorney. GO ANNA! NORCO wishes you the best of luck!
Seven year NORCO player, Ali Travis ('19) is starting her freshman year at Florida Southern. Ali wishes the upcoming NORCO players a great season!
Thanks Ali and Good Luck This Season!
From a very young age, I knew that volleyball was going to be a passion of mine. My passion strengthened as I advanced through club and began to create friendships with my teammates and bonds with coaches. As time went on my love for the sport only grew stronger.
Through my eight seasons at NORCO and the start of my recruiting process, hard work was something I was used to and I knew that I had to continue with it if I was going to play at the next level. Not being a 6’+ tall outside required me to apply myself and push through even more. I stuck with the recruiting process and even though it didn’t happen as quickly for me as it did for some of my teammates I was patient and just kept up with the recruiting steps that NORCO taught me and it paid off.
That would be my advice to others wanting to play - especially those who are shorter or feel that their recruiting process is taking longer - keep with it, work hard and trust the process. There are a lot of great schools and great coaches out there, you will find your fit. I’m so excited to be heading to McPherson College and I absolutely love the coach and program. I look forward to contributing to the team and of course, continuing my hard work ethic! Go Bulldogs!
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 email@example.com (719) 228-6800

Our focus is more than volleyball and our qualified coaches strive to teach young men and women how to be successful. Every year, we hope to instill lasting impressions on these players that they will carry with them for a lifetime. Club Volleyball is a tool that teaches young men and women how to face difficult circumstances where they are forced to be uncomfortable and pushed to balance school, life, family, and volleyball. This is a challenge for every young adult and a necessary part of preparing for the next stages in life.
