The philosophy of the Cottage Grove Volleyball Club is to assist athletes in developing their volleyball skills and provide the opportunity to compete with other players of similar abilities.
Our objectives are to provide an organized program for the youth of the Cottage Grove community that will:
Teach the fundamentals of volleyball.
Develop self-confidence for every player.
Allow each player to have an opportunity to participate and develop.
Play in a safe and healthy environment.
Incorporate the spirit of good sportsmanship in victory OR defeat.
Develop respect for others, teamwork, pride in the team and community.
Success is found in the progress made toward individual and team goals, not by the team’s win/loss record.
No individual is more important than the team. No team is more important than the program.
Allow girls to develop a love for a life long sport.
