Blazer Volleyball Summer Schedule
I’m very excited to get started this summer on conditioning and practicing! With a great opportunity to increase our skills as individuals and as a team, I am confident that we will succeed this season. I wanted to make sure you had some details in regards to the calendar that was sent also. First and foremost I want everyone to understand that summer practicing/conditioning is not mandatory but strongly encouraged. However, coming or not coming plays no role in whether or not you will make the team. ONLY tryouts will determine who is on the team, not summer involvement. I would encourage you all though to attend practices as often as you can as it will increase your own skills.
Practice will begin promptly at 9:00. If you are late, the whole group will run. We will conclude practice at 11:00. Your transportation should be no later than 11:10, or the whole group will run the next time. Practices on June 7th and 14th, July 10th and 12th, July 16-17th will be held at Eastside Worship Center. June 5th and 12th will be at Greer High School (3000 E. Gap Creek Rd, Greer, SC). June 6th and 13th, July 11th and 18th will be at Cleveland Park (East Washington Street and Cleveland Park Drive).
*All girls must have current physical to participate. Girls should come prepared with knee pads, proper tennis shoes, water bottle, and shorts (over spandex…you know my ruleJ).
Camps are not required but strongly encouraged for girls to build their individual skills and gain a better idea of the basic concepts and techniques of volleyball.
