Green River volleyball has long held a strong tradition of excellence in the South Sound region since the program's inception in 1978.

Green River volleyball teams have competed in the NW Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) Championships 28 of the 35 years they have been a part of the association. Green River has won the NWAACC Western Region title fourteen times including a share of the 2012 title. They have recently placed third in the 2005 NWAACC tournament and fifth in the 2006 event.  The Gators won the NWAACC Championship in 1984.

Gator volleyball is proud of its reputation for developing student athletes who are committed to achieving their academic, athletic and personal goals.  Many athletes have moved on to play at the university level including Central Washington, Pacific Lutheran, Linfield, Montana Western, Warner Pacific, and Missouri Valley.  2012 graduate, Katelyn Nugent signed an NCAA Division I letter of intent with Manhattan College in Manhattan, N.Y.
