We are excited about all of those students that show interest in our volleyball program by picking up a tryout packet. Remember, the packet is due by Wednesday, April 30th to Coach Steffkova (B-8) for upcoming 7th graders and Coach Ferguson (B-18) for upcoming 8th graders!
In the week before tryouts, you want to make sure that you are preparing your body and mind for the week of tryouts. It is a good idea to make sure that you are getting plenty of rest, eating healthy, reviewing your basic volleyball skills (passing, serving, setting, hitting, and blocking), and making sure that you are ready to have a great tryout!
