Varsity Volleyball

Volleyball is just an avenue for young ladies to experience being a team member and perform in a capacity that pushes oneself further than thought possible. The Grace Volleyball program strives to build Godly young women that pursue Christ in all that they do on and off the court. We desire to compete at a high level while honoring the One that gave us the abilities to compete on a daily basis.
