Striving For Greatness Together
George Fox volleyball athletes are known for integrity and authenticity on and off the court, which drives our relationships with each other and our competitive success. We strive to give athletes a fun, meaningful and competitive experience they'll never forget and a community of Bruins they'll never lose.
On the volleyball team, we embrace the challenge of playing outside our comfort zones and pushing ourselves to always improve. We're tenacious competitors every time we set foot in the gym, whether it's a practice or a game. We believe what we do both on and off the court defines who we are as a team, and when we dedicate ourselves together to the smallest details, we create a winning culture.
