Happy Summer! While summer break is just starting, the high school volleyball season will be here before you know it. In an effort to help families plan their summer vacations, here are some key dates for August that you may want to put on your calendar:
Week of August 9th - Captains will be engaging the girls in a week of volleyball fun, this is not mandatory, but encouraged for all levels from incoming freshman to seniors. Normally this is a couple hours in the morning, more details to come as the date gets closer.
Week of August 16th - Tryout Week! All girls are expected to be at the high school all week. Tryouts will last all day with a morning session and afternoon session. Teams are normally selected by Friday for all levels, Freshman A & B, Sophomore, JV, and Varsity.
Friday, August 20st - Varsity Only - there will be a mandatory meeting for the girls that make Varsity on Friday night, more details to come after teams are selected.
Week of August 23rd - All teams will have two a day practices, so expect to be at the high school every day, all day! Pictures will also be taken this week, so please plan on being in town as we must have them taken early to get the program finalized and printed.
This also feels like a good time to add a friendly reminder that the volleyball program does not run itself, we need help from all our amazing parents! Here are a couple of things to keep in mind as part of our volleyball community:
Volunteer - All parents will need to complete volunteer duties which will include things like concession duty, committee chair, and committee members. Together we make this a wonderful experience for all our daughters!
Fundraising & Donations - The booster club provides equipment, funding for all themed home games, banquet meals for the girls, gifts for the seniors, assistant coaches salary, and many additional things that make this a special program. To stay financially strong we engage in annual fundraising and ask each of our parents to make a donation as well. To run this program it costs a minimum of $100/player. If your daughter plays club volleyball you will find this number to be very reasonable compared to your spring club costs. Again, the program doesn’t thrive without all of your support, so please keep this in mind as you continue to support your daughter's passion for the game!
