Here is some information and some important dates about the upcoming volleyball season here at Ballard High School. We will be working extremely hard and putting in long hours before the season’s first match.
Tryouts begin Monday AUGUST 24, 2015, in the main gym. The schedule for the week of tryouts will be as follows:
Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 2:00-7:00.
Note: We hope to have all three teams chosen by Wednesday, August26, 2015.
Thursday andFriday will be the regular team practice times going forward:
Varsity 2:30-5:00, JV 3:00-5:00 andJVC 4:00-6:00
Saturday, August 29, for all three teams from *7:00am – 9:00 am*
Each player must have ten practices in prior to the first match. All players must come to all the tryouts and cannot miss any practices once they have made a team to be in the program except for an emergency or illness.
You must have your paperwork, sports fee and ASB card purchased before tryouts begin. The sports paper work is ready now in the main office and can be turned in before June 19, 2015. The next day to turn in paper work to the main office will be August 19, 2015, from 9am -3pm.
Volleyball as played in high school is nothing like volleyball that you play in your P.E. class. We practice everyday and sometimes on Saturday. We have two matches during the week and sometimes tournaments on Saturdays. Even though this means total commitment for the entire season, we will also have fun and enjoy ourselves.
Make sure you touch the volleyball this summer and continue to play volleyball until tryouts. One fun, easy way to do so is to attend the Ballard Volleyball Camp held June 30 – July 2. The registration form is attached. Also, come to tryouts in shape and ready to go. We work hard and have fun from Day One.
