UPDATED - 3-27-17
Now that the spring sports season has started we're not that far away from the start of our open gyms. They will be on Monday afternoons this year from 3:30-5:15pm , the 1st date will be 6-5-17 and they will continue until the end of July. Hopefully all players have done something to get better in the off season as that really is the only way to compete anymore, there are opportunities at the Academy Sports Center in Lynnwood, please check them out @ www.academyvb.com , they have spring leagues and small group training sessions, please do not assume that since you made a team last season or even the past couple of seasons that you are guaranteed a spot on a team this coming season, ALL players have a responsibility to do somethings to make themselves better during the off season. I wanted to get information out early on the start of the fall season since there always seems to be some confusion. The high school seasons are different than the middle school seasons so I need incoming freshman to pay special attention but returners this is a reminder to you as well. The fall sports season starts 2 weeks prior to the start of school so you need to make sure you plan your vacations around the start of fall practices if you plan on playing, the first day of fall practices will be Monday 8-21-17 during the first 3 days of that week we will decide who is on which team, the fourth day of that week (Thursday the 24th) will be the first day for individual practices, in other words all 3 teams will practice on their own court, there is NO break once the season starts on the 21st and it continues uninterrupted until approx. the end of October, please do not plan on taking any vacations during this time, not even a couple of days, it is not fair to the rest of the team. Please contact me with questions, thanks . - Dave Morehouse - Varsity Coach
