UPDATED - 8-27-16 -
Shorecrest 2016 players/parents - welcome to the SC volleyball program to some and welcome back to others, you'll find the match schedule for the season on the Wesco website at www.wescoathletics.com, there are occasionally changes made to the match schedule mid season so please be aware that this is a possibility, please note that for away matches where the team takes a bus to and from, ALL players will be required to ride the bus to and from the match so players plan on bringing homework with you since you will have some down time, many of our matches close to Shorecrest and mostly in the Edmonds district will have one way buses where the players will be dropped off and the bus will leave , the player will be responsible to get themselves home, this is a cost savings for the district not having to pay a bus driver while waiting for the matches to complete and has been district policy for several years. Two other very important items which your coaches will be addressing with you, if you visit a doctor/dentist for any reason during the season (even a routine Dr visit or teeth cleaning) you MUST bring a note from your doctor stating that you're cleared to participate in a practice or match, this is a district requirement, if you don't let the coach know and he/she finds out we'll have to hold you out of a practice or match until we receive that note. The last thing is that we have a GREAT trainer on staff at Shorecrest who's in the training room each afternoon (except Fridays), he just returned from training Olympic athletes in Brazil. We need to take advantage of this and we highly recommend in a non emergency situation that you talk with him before you see a doctor so that you can get some direction, ankles, hands, feet, shoulders, backs, head (potential concussions)- he's great with ALL of these and can likely have you back and participating sooner so please let your coach know if you have an issue and we'll connect you with the trainer , his name is Ed Elder.
REVISED: We have a preseason barbecue each year at a players house and we are now confirmed for Tuesday September 6th at 6:15pm at the home of Shelby Gresch, maps/directions will be provided by Shelby but its over near Shoreline Community College for reference, it generally lasts about an hour to an hour and a half, each team will have items to bring, check with your coach.
We unfortunately were not able to keep all who tried out due to large numbers, if you're still looking for a place to play there our leagues for high school age players at the Academy Sports Center in Lynnwood, some of you were given flyers to this on Wednesday , the Alderwood boys and girls club also has team/leagues for high school age players and of course club volleyball will follow the high school with tryouts in mid to late November, I highly encourage you to check out these options.
Tryouts begin Monday August 22nd 2016 from 3:45-6:15 pm , varsity practices will remain at that time thru out the season, JV & C team practices will likely start and finish earlier, we'll confirm once we break down the teams, we will likely break down into teams after our Wednesday August 24th practice but we may need to extend decisions on the JV & C teams until the end of the week. Ten practices are required before any player is eligible to participate in a match. All paperwork should be returned to the Shorecrest athletic office prior to the first day of practice. Please remember that all paperwork must be returned to Lane Loland in the main office, if it comes to me in the gym the first day I'll have to send you to the office, please return it the week before so we can work thru any issues if needed. Paperwork packets will be available for pick up in the main office however the office is closed until August 15th. Please note that tryouts are a full 2 weeks before the start of school this year, factor this in to your summer vacation schedules if you plan on playing. For those of you moving up from Kellogg or any other middle school, the high school seasons are a little bit different, once tryouts begin on the 22nd the season continues uninterrupted until approx the end of October, there are no off days or holiday breaks (including Labor Day).
