Announcements

1. Pre-Season Lifting and Conditioning: Sign up in the Athletic Office by Feb 1 to train with Tyler English 3x/wk if possible. This will take the place of our team lifting, and you can do it on whatever schedule works for you. We are very fortunate to have such an experienced trainer working with us. If you are already in a sport, then check with your current coach b/c we don't want to have you be over train. Tyler and I are putting together a custom conditioning and lifting program for your volleyball skills.

2. Recruiting: Without additional Freshman and Sophomores, we are at risk to not field a JV team. Please encourage new players to try out, and experienced players, please work with them prior to the season to help teach them everything you know about volleyball.

3. Morgan Classic: You can sign up now for the Springfield Morgan Classic on February 4th for great instruction by college players/coaches. http://www.volleyhall.org/uploads/3/9/6/0/39609237...

Since every person is vital to each play, if you are absent from practice, or a game, it significantly impacts our ability to compete at the level we need to. We have a tough schedule, and need to be our best every match.
