Junior Division standout brings experience to national team

Zoe Voris is the definition of humble, kind and yet competitive. This well versed player started out playing at a young age and set goals for herself to work her way up to the top and that’s just what she has done. A new addition to the U.S. Women’s National Team, Voris has a long list of accolades that made her a great candidate on paper. However, it was her aggressive style, court awareness and all-around play that got her a spot on the U.S. Women’s National Team that is now competing at the 2017 IWBF America’s Qualifier.

Voris started playing for the Hammond Rollin Hoosiers in her home state of Indiana. She was originally introduced to the sport at her local YMCA where a volunteer coach saw her potential and recruited her to play. The program was perfect for her early development but grew to be too casual and recreational for this competitive and growing athlete.

 She later joined the Rolling Falcons, a junior team that was more competitive and suited for her level of play. She was coached by NWBA all-star David Radbel, who she attributes a lot of her growth and development of skill to. When she was 14 years old, she led the Falcons to a junior division title at the Midwest Conference Championships, and also named MVP of the tournament. The Falcons are a co-ed team that helped build her physical style and tenacious defense.

Voris worked hard to make her first national team and looks to build on all of her current success. She feels she brings a unique style of play to the team and is so proud to represent Team USA.  After Qualifiers she will look to stay consistent with team training and have her sights set on Tokyo in 2020.
