Welcome to the Shorecrest Volleyball web site

 UPDATED - 8-19-16 - Open gyms have concluded for the summer, thanks to ALL that came out , we had over 60 different players out over the 8 weeks with lots of improvement by all ! Tryouts are only about a week and a half away, see below.

Tryouts are only a few days away please take a look at the information below it should answer most if not all of your questions for the first week, following that each coach will pass along information related to their teams so players make sure you talk to the coach of the team that you're playing on once those teams have been determined. You'll find the match schedule for the season on the Wesco website at www.wescoathletics.com, please note that for away matches where the team takes a bus, 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.  Also starting Monday the 22nd (the official start of the season) the gym during practices will be for players and coaches only, no parents, siblings or friends will be allowed in the gym during practice times, parents if you're picking up your daughter please wait out in the lobby area, thank you. We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday !

THE WEEK OF AUGUST 15TH THE SHORECREST OFFICE WILL RE-OPEN AFTER SUMMER BREAK, OFFICE HOURS WILL BE 9AM TO NOON & 1:00PM TO 3:00PM, YOU CAN TURN FALL PAPERWORK IN AT THAT TIME, THAT'S ONLY ONE WEEK PRIOR TO THE START OF THE FALL SEASON, I RECOMMEND NOT WAITING TO TURN IN PAPERWORK UNTIL THE 1ST DAY OF TRYOUTS JUST IN CASE SOMETHING IS NOT COMPLETE OR IS INCORRECT, ALL PAPERWORK MUST BE REVIEWED BY OUR AD THEN HE'LL PASS ALONG THE YELLOW EMERGENCY CARD TO ME THE COACHES , THAT TELLS US THAT YOU'RE ELIGIBLE TO TRYOUT. TOO MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS PEOPLE WAIT TO SCHEDULE THEIR PHYSICALS AND THEN CANNOT GET AN APPOINTMENT IN TIME FOR THE START OF TRYOUTS, PLEASE MAKE APPOINTMENTS NOW AND GET IT TAKEN CARE OF AHEAD OF TIME. READ ON FOR MORE TRYOUT INFORMATION AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

 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).

HERE'S AN IDEA FOR THE TIME BETWEEN THE LAST OPEN GYM AND THE START OF TRYOUTS , GET SOME FRIENDS/TEAMMATES TOGETHER AND PLAY OUTDOORS, IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR GAME, I HAVE OUTDOOR NETS AND WILL PROVIDE THEM IF REQUESTED, THERE'S PROBABLY A PLACE YOU CAN SET UP SOME WHERE AT SHORECREST, IF NOT ANOTHER SCHOOL OR A LOCAL PARK.
