Women's Volleyball To Start On November 8 & 15

Originally we had intentions of starting the season with practices on November 1.  Unfortunately, both middle schools will not be available due to Parent/Teacher conferences.  This year both schools will be utilizing the gyms for these conferences and we have very minimal options to move to.  Now our practice date will be Tuesday, November 8 and our first slate of matches will be November 1

An additional e-mail regarding practice times will be sent and we will ask for those that want to practice to submit their time request.  Some of you may have already done so and we will record those accordingly.  We will look to fill space at both middle schools and maybe an elementary school if one is available for November 8.  The regukar season will begin on November 15
