Practice Attendance

Practice is the foundational core of our philosophy for player development.  None of our coaches have a magic wand or a mystical spell that we can use to magically make you into a better player.  This only occurs through practice.  And unlike Allen Iverson's belief (see his rant on youTube:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGDBR2L5kzI), practices are are of paramount importance for us.  All things being equal, our players share in the playing time at tournaments.  However, the major factor that precludes a player from playing in games is her practice attendance. 

Illnesses and injuries will happen over the course of the season and are unavoidable.  School athletic commitments also take precedence--that's part of the high school athletic rules.  However, missing practices for other reasons become an issue.  Choosing to play club volleyball signifies a certain level of commitment to not only yourself as a player, but also to your team and coach.  I can attest to the fact that this is doable based on personal experience with our daughter that you can play club volleyball seriously by not missing practice, carry a rigorous academic load as well as play high school athletics.  It certainly is not easy and requires time management.

 Again, players who miss practices will find themselves sitting on the bench more than playing on the court.
