Summer Info

Please take a look at the summer open gyms on the events link.  Things are very different this summer.  All the change is based on the past few years and other factors as well. 

The open gyms are not mandatory, but I would recommend coming or at least playing some volleyball somewhere (ex: volleyball camps, with friends, etc.) over the summer. 

To be upfront, there are only 4 open gyms the whole summer.  Many girls play club volleyball and many coaches coach club volleyball and I truly believe a break needs to occur.  Going from high school volleyball in the fall, straight into club volleyball all the way until end of June and then start high school volleyball again . . . it's not healthy.  A break is needed!  For the girls that do not play club volleyball, do not worry.  The open gyms are going to be jammed packed with basic information about the game. . . you will learn so much in such a small time period.

Also, CIF rules state all Fall sports must have a "dead period".  This means the girls are not allowed to participate in any sports.  This ensures they are taking a break. 

Please take a look at the calendar.  If a few more open gyms are needed, I can add them throughout the summer.  

All days of tryouts are MANDATORY.  The girls must be cleared through the finance office in order to tryout.  There are clearence packets in the front office for you to complete.  There is a physical that needs to be done, so please schedule that soon. I will provide more information to the girls during the open gyms.  NO ATHLETES MAY TRYOUT UNLESS THEY ARE CLEARED! NO EXCEPTIONS!  



The 4 C's

The 4 C's are the most important pieces of advice that will help you throughout your playing days.  In order to perfect technique and develop in skill level, the following reminders must be made a priority to make your volleyball career successful and to make you the best teammate you can be.

Competitiveness - A good way to work on your competitiveness in practice is to go for every ball.  Go into practice with this mindset.

Coachability - Listen and give your undivided attention to your coach at all times.  If you don't understand something, don't be afraid to ask.  Make sure you are on time and prepared for all practices and competitions.

Concentration - Focus on what is at hand.  If you are working on a skill, try to be aware of what your body is doing.  If you are playing in a game, try to keep your focus in the present.

Communication - To become a good teammate and help not only you, but your teammates as well, you must talk.  Talking creates energy and makes practices and competitions fun.
