On Saturday March 18 Gators Volleyball Club hosted the first NERVA sanctioned U11 tournament ever held in New England. Five clubs from MA, RI, and CT sent teams to compete in this friendship tournament.
Under the energetic and positive leadership of first-year head coach Sophie Tavolieri, the SMASH 11s are the first U11 team ever formed by SMASH in the club's nearly thirty year history of juniors volleyball.
With only two practices behind them, SMASH 11s impressed coaches and spectators with strong overhand serving and 3-contact volleyball. Posting an overall set record of 4-4 over two rounds of pool play, SMASH 11s were excited to experience competitive match play and learn new officiating skills in a fun-filled atmosphere of promising young volleyball talent!
