*August 6th at 630PM is the Fall sports meeting. Please attend so I can meet parents and potential players. I will handout information including expectations, team philosophy, practice information, team policies, recruit parent help, challenge match rules, and field any questions.
Tryouts will take place 8/12, 8/13, 8/14, 8/15 from 4PM-6PM. I know a few have asked for morning but my work schedule doesn't allow it.
I will evaluate live hitting and serving. I may assign matches and will hold some round robins to create ladder and possible cuts.
For Varsity I will likely have 14 players and JV 10 players.
If you played last year please let me know what number you were on the team. For any new players please let me know your experience and if you play tournaments (level), ranking, or UTR.
