When does Volleyball start? Students need to signup with Mr. Andress in mid January. Students will be asked in class multiple times. Volleyball practice typically starts the 2nd full week of March.
What do players need to be eligible for Volleyball? All players must have a current Erin School District Athletic Eligibility Form, which includes a current physical and a concussion form. Finally, players need to pay the $50 volleyball fee payable to Erin School.
How often and what times are practices? Typically a team will practice 3 nights per week.
How many games/matches do they play? Each team will play a total of 10 matches (5 separate nights x 2 matches each of those nights).
What’s a match? A match consists of 3 games – each player usually gets to play in at least 1 game per match.
When are the matches? Matches may start at 4:30, 5:20, 6:10 or 7:00 – often the road team will play back to back times.
When will we know our schedule for practices and games? Your coach will contact you with a practice and match schedule in early March. Due to several different teams, gym space, coaches schedules and match scheduling conflicts it is impossible to predict what nights or times either matches or practices will be. Your understanding and patience with this is much appreciated.
When does the season end? There is a conference tournament held at Arrowhead High School in late April for Boys and early/mid May for the girls.
Is there an end of the season Recognition Night or “banquet”? No, each coach is responsible for doing their own end of season wrap up. This is due to several factors such as coach’s other endeavors, the seasons ending at different times, possibly not having boys teams, and several other conflicts such as Talent Show, Fine Arts Night, and several different sports practices or games.
Does the player need special “equipment”? Generally, the coach will handle this in a preseason letter or at the first practice. Boys will purchase a team shirt which they MUST wear for all matches. There will be a new order placed each year in February for 6th graders, new players or any player needing a new shirt for any reason. Black shorts are preferred for matches. Tennis shoes, athletic shorts and a t-shirt are appropriate for practice.
